TTD Executive Officer

TTDs Executive Officer, K.V. Ramanachari said that the TTD administration was geared up to implement all the epoch-making programmes formulated by the TTD Trust Board. He told this correspondent that the TTD hierarchy was fully motivated. Special cells have been created to monitor the programmes. The TTD believes that spiritualism and social consciousness should supplement and complement each other, Ramanachari said. He spoke at length about the Sravanam project, which aims at diagnosing hearing impairment in infants and ensuring timely medical intervention.

He said the TTD had floated Annadanam, Pranadana, and Go Samrakshana trusts to cater to the needs of the socially and economically backward people. Besides, Karunadhamam has been started in Tirupati to provide shelter to the aged and infirm, destitute persons and mentally challenged children.

Ramanachari said the Sri Venkateswara Bhakthi Channel operated by the TTD was part of its efforts to preserve and promote the Vedas and Indian culture. The Sri Venkateswara Vedic University, set up recently, is another step in this direction.1

A letter from the Editor

Dear reader,

The COVID-19-induced lockdown and the absolute necessity for human beings to maintain a physical distance from one another in order to contain the pandemic has changed our lives in unimaginable ways. The print medium all over the world is no exception.

As the distribution of printed copies is unlikely to resume any time soon, Frontline will come to you only through the digital platform until the return of normality. The resources needed to keep up the good work that Frontline has been doing for the past 35 years and more are immense. It is a long journey indeed. Readers who have been part of this journey are our source of strength.

Subscribing to the online edition, I am confident, will make it mutually beneficial.
