An article from 'THE HINDU'

A tsunami art exhibition by NSS students was held recently. The exhibition was based on the relief activity carried out by the NSS volunteers of the Anna University.

More than 200 works of art from 230 engineering colleges were displayed. Vice-chancellor D. Vishwananthan inaugurated the exhibition. The exhibition was an expression of condolences to the people who suffered in the December 26, 2004 tsunami. It also aimed at creating awareness among the student community of how to carry out rescue operations.

The university NSS Cell has 250 units in the engineering colleges and 25,000 NSS volunteers doing development activities in adopted villages. The vice-chancellor also released the proceedings of a seminar, "Technologies for Rural Development", at the exhibition on September 13.
