Social Awareness Cell

Social Awareness Cell was established with a view of inculcating moral values in the minds of the students and making them socially aware about the difficulties and hardships of society. These socially aware minds tend to empathize towards others regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, disability, class, or sexual identity, and hence help contribute towards building a healthy society.

The event was held in Dyanjyoti Savitribai Phule School, which is a government school. The principal of the school was considerate, co-operative and patient, which was highly appreciated.

The classrooms and the school environment gave everyone a hit of nostalgia. The excited and supportive children and their bright faces gave the Pillai College students, the much needed confidence. The event was highly interesting, engaging and interactive. The children had a lot of fun and didn't miss any chance to enjoy every bit of it.

There was a short quiz set up with cloth bags as prizes to give out the 'No Plastic' message and there were sweets for all.

The event concluded with the plantation of a few saplings, sweet smiles and happy memories.

International Day of Yoga

Mahatma Education Society's Pillai Group of Institutions observed International Day of Yoga in association with Soroptimist International Bombay Chembur, an organization that works for the welfare of women by conducting a yoga session for the underprivileged women who work as helpers at Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai Campus on 21st June, 2015. Yoga experts, Mr. Ashish Samarth and Mrs. Deepika Samarth from Vyaana Yoga Centre conducted the 90 minute session.

The event was a grand success with around 40 women attending the session. The yoga experts spoke about the various health issues of women and the importance of making time for oneself and for exercise to remain fit and healthy. A series of yogasanas and breathing techniques was practiced during the session. The participants wholeheartedly participated in all the exercises and felt very relaxed after the session. Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Daphne Pillai, Chairperson of Mahatma Education Society and Founder President of Soroptimist International Bombay Chembur observed that "It is very fulfilling to provide such opportunities for the underprivileged in society and observing such UN declared dates like the International Day of Yoga helps to highlight the importance of being fit and healthy especially among the disadvantaged in society."
