Sridharaan and his team hits the street whenever there is a need be it Tsunami, Floods, Water Shortage (or) Storm or Covid19.
Our team met Sridharaan in one of their Covid19 distribution drive for Corporation Workers & Police Personnel’s that happened on 26th March 2020. He looked to be a simple man doing the marking and was getting prepared to distribute face masks & other essential equipment’s.
We spoke to Sridharaan (Though from a distance of over 1.5mtrs). He was hesitant to share the details and never wanted his work to be published like many other Noble individuals in the Country today. However we requested him to give us his details since it will prove to be a motivation for others to come forward and do their bit in this crisis situation.
Hello Sridharaan pls share some details about your work in covid19 and how are you managing to do it in this crisis situation? And about your background?
I wish to tell you that we are not the only team on ground doing this but there are many other organizations / volunteer groups & individuals who have hit the ground and doing phenomenal work. We chose to do a small part that we are capable of doing. Service as such has been edged in our vein since our College days. We are all alumnus of DG Vaishnav college NCC. Our team is supported by the entire team which passed out from 1989 to until 2014. The entire network is intact and this is our motivation. Its a team effort and not an individuals contribution.

Under the guidance of Chennai Corporation officials, we run multiple awareness programs especially to bring confidence to face Corona & lead a positive life.
While most of keep worrying about Corona There are some interesting Take away

- 5 Lakh People who Urinate on the streets every day, which has gone to zero,
- 20% of Chennai Population used to Spit on the road, which has reduced to Zero,
- Vehicle Pollution & Noise Pollution has come down drastically,
- Theft, Rape, Murder etc has also come down,
- We can hear the birds waking us up in the morning & animals walk freely on road.
- Most important people spend time for themselves and with their family.
We understand there is lot of negativity around us, but positivity comes only from within, we at Inspirations, strive hard to achieve that peace and harmony.
