On March 2, 2013, the C.P. Ramaswami Aiyar Foundation held an awards ceremony for their environmental program Kindness Kids. Shri Dulichandji, Chairman, Karuna International, the Chief Guest, gave away prizes to the winners of contests.
“Leave Wild Animals Alone” was the theme of one of the artwork contests. Deer, peacocks, water birds, and other animals are happier and safer when not disturbed by humans. They can live in the forest by a peaceful river.
Kindness Kids reaches children in several Indian states, fostering kindness and compassion for animals and the environment.
