Extensive community works and hearing negative news ruined my happiness.

I used my community mobilizing skill for assembling all the women folks from our localities and happy about the facility done for fellow residents. I played Dodge ball and lost in the final round but it was a thrill round with fun. I have been honoured with compliments for the volunteer service. Thanks a ton to Coromandel International Ltd., Ennore. “
