Power of Silence

Sudha, along with other dignitaries and the Mayor of Chennai, assembled at the Marina Beach, Chennai and observed 8 minutes of silence from 08:00:08 am to 08:08:08 am, listening only to the sounds of nature. This event was organized by the Global Carnatic Music Association in collaboration with Sri Krishna Sweets and Exnora International, in a move to bring in an awakening on the effects of global warming.
