Staff Reporter –
Auckland based community worker Nadesan Nanthakumar has reason to feel proud.
As his annual ‘Musical Journey,’ steps in to the fourth year, he looks forward to raising more money for the ‘New Zealand Thiru Murugan Temple Trust’ which runs the newly opened Thiru Murugan Temple in Otahuhu in Auckland.
The three past ‘journeys’ have enabled him to donate $16,500 (through sale of tickets and food and the relentless man is eager to do more.
He has appealed to people to help him raise more funds as they enjoy ‘Beats & Melodies’ (as the programme is called) on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at Auckland Normal Intermediate School auditorium, located at Poronui Street, Mount Eden.
As in the past, the lead performers would be the three daughters of Mr Nanthakumar- Geerthana, Divya and Manisha.
Geerthana is a final year undergraduate student at the University of Auckland, working towards a Bachelor of Commerce degree and hopes to become a Chartered Accountant. She is currently doing her internship at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Like her sister, Divya is pursuing graduate degree (Bachelor) in Commerce and hopes to become a Chartered Accountant. She is currently working on a casual basis as a Sales Consultant for New Zealand Media and Entertainment.
Manisha is a Year-9 student at Epsom Girls Grammar School. She is learning Carnatic music and Eastern classical violin.
A detailed profile of the artistes will appear in our next issue.
