Birthday - Grama Seva
With the divine blessings and grace of Bhagawan, we undertook grama seva to provide drinking water facilities to village schools, public places and village nursing homes outskirts of Chennai. This water project had been undertaken in commemoration with the 80th Birthday celebrations. In 6 village schools, the drinking water facility has been provided by constructing 8 water tanks (especially 6 in different schools, 1 in a bus stand and 1 in a village nursing home). Approximately 4,000 children would benefit from these water tanks in the schools. The water tank in the hospital is a matter of big relief for the villagers and the staff of the hospital, who used to walk 10 minutes to fetch water during deliveries and other ailments in the hospital. This tank has brought great relief to them. Also, we undertook renovation of toilets, electrification and painting of their premises. As part of the Grama Seva temple cleaning, tree plantation and Narayan Seva were also initiated. .

Birthday - Seva in Puttaparthi
ith the Divine Blessings and Grace of Bhagwan, we boys got the opportunity to do service at prashanthi nilayam, which is portion of 80th birthday seva. We were given service in canteen. About 50 Sai brothers got the opportunity to participate in this seva. We were given oppurtunity in three areas:
1) To unload the big vessels from trucks and carry them to the distribution points.
2) Pass the food to each and every counter.
3) Serve the food to all the devotees.
We split ourselves into three teams and served food with the Josh Mantra in lips, "JAI BOLO BHAGAWAN SRI SRI SRI SATHYA SAI MAHARAJ KI..JAI!" We started the seva in Puttaparthi on 19th NOV 2005 and completed by 24th NOV 2005. Village youth, who took part in the activity had witnessed Swamis divine power which pulled enormous devotees all over the world. They are really astonished on seeing such a massive crowd.
