Newsletter - May 2023
One single seed can make the whole earth green. A single Buddha can make the whole world afire with a new consciousness and a new humanity.
You are the very hope of a world which is in great despair, in great anguish.
It is not only a question of your individuality to become a Buddha, it is a question of saving this whole planet.
This planet can be saved only by people who understand that every living being is divine says Osho – Rajanish
Keeping the above spirit in mind, this year on World Environment Day (5th June) Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, Chairman, Civil-20 2023 launched a Global seed ball campaign. We are sure; All Indians will participate in this movement to make this planet greener and safer to live. As far as the Green Rameswaram project is concerned, greening and beautification are one of the important verticals of creating Green Resilient Rameswaram.

Financial Accounting - 8
Dear Friends, welcome back to the study of Financial Accounting. Please recall that we used a fictitious case study for an intuitive understanding of the three fundamental accounting statements. Next we undertook a more detailed understanding of the principles behind them, so that we may be able to apply them in our different circumstances. We followed the earlier pattern, where Bala Sir interacts with the ladies of a Self Help Group (SHG) to explain the theory.
