Every care is taken to provide joyous and festive moods to various celebrations like Raksha bandhan, Independence day, Ganesha Chathurthi, Onam, Krishna janmashtami, Ramzan, Teacher’s day, Children’s day, Christmas, New year and Pongal. Religion is not differential; it is a unifying cord, a reason for celebration.
