AN APPEAL

We would sincerely like to thank all our well wishers in India and abroad, who have contributed to our work in this section so far.

In our bid to preserve, sustain and revive an interest in ritual arts, support the handful of artistes practising the dying tradition as well as develop a new body of artistes who can continue the tradition within the temples, Arangham Trust welcomes outside help and contributions.

All cheques or money orders (national and international) can be made to "Arangham Trust" and will be acknowledged.

Contributions made in Indian rupees will enjoy tax exemption under Section 80 G.
