Sri Sumukhi Rajasekharan Memorial Foundation conducted the ninth Bala Vidhwan Bhavani on 1st January 2011 from 6am to 8am. Children and elders including the members of the Foundation dressed in South Indian traditional attire, participated in large numbers by enthusiastically singing Bhajans, Thirupaavai, Thiruvempaavai and Namavalis. Little girls and boys, mothers also performed Kolattam and Kummi around the four Mada streets of Kapaleeswarar Temple and venpongal as prasadam was distributed to one and all at the end.
An octogenarian commented: "I know a person by name Jalandirai (a Mylaporean, who lived many decades back), who used to conduct Margazhi procession early morning, with a large number of children singing and dancing on the Mada streets of Mylapore. After several decades, I am very thrilled and happy to see these children doing the same. God bless them."
