SYMA thanks Sri S. Giridharan

I have circulated appeal of SYMA recently, in fact every year around this time, I post the same !

On May 26, I had posted on a man of wisdom beyond age .. a doyen in Insurance industry held in high esteem by thousands of General Insurers – Sri S Giridharan, popularly Bobby to us.

Srinivas Youngmen’s Association (popularly SYMA)  has been doing service to the society ever since 1977.  Our  services engulf  various lines such as civic welfare, medicine, health, environment, education, personality development more.     We at SYMA, feel strongly the primary responsibility of improving the Society and helping the underprivileged.   

1) Medical Centre and Laboratory run for the poor wherein free consultation and medicines are provided – popularly known as ரெண்டு ரூவா மருத்துவமனை   [Rs. 2 hospital !]   We  have a Medical lab wherein blood and other tests are done at very nominal costs.  WE have Physiotheraphy and Ultrasound scan as well.

2) SYMA Growth – a purposeful special tuition centre for coaching poor students of 10th and 12th standards.  Into its 16th  year now, this was inaugurated in  2008 and producing good results year after year, changing the lives of poor children.  The  year are planning to start by end June 2023.  

Education is the only thing that can change the lives of children coming from lower echelons of society.  We firmly believe that only quality education can improve them and ensure their moving to a higher echelon.  For making students attend schools with dignity, we have been providing uniforms for more than 2 decades now.  This year we plan to provide 1500  sets of unstitched uniforms to poor students.  Schools and students have been identified and the process is already on.   A set of uniform would cost Rs.750/- approx..  We seek your support for a few sets from your side.  

Our Tuition Centre SYMA Growth – runs at an annual expenditure of Rs.8 lakhs approx. and this year, we have plans of extending.  Generally, we collect funds in the months of  July & ahead coinciding with our Educational Aid Programme, though donations are welcome throughout the year. 

You have patronized us in a big way in the past, and we look forward to receiving your donations this year too. Cheques are to be drawn in the name of  ‘SRINIVAS YOUNGMENS ASSOCIATION’  (or simply SYMA)– payable at Chennai. In case any donor wishes to make a Bank transfer, details are available below. Contributions to SYMA are eligible for deduction under Sec 80G (5) (vi) of Income Tax Act, as applicable.  : For Bank account and more details, please click :

My happiness knew no bounds as Giri called me this evening.  He accompanied by our friend N Thirumurthi visited Triplicane, came to SYMA medical centre.  Giri donated Rs.50,000/- to SYMA encouraging us to continue our services.
