It is said that about 380crores of our tax money was spent on mere celebration. This pricks our heart.
How are we sure that the amount had been spent unproductive? For anything and everything we need money. We have to spend money. Money is a tool that brings about all our dreams come true.
Through this event the world has come to know the richness of our Tamil culture and the younger generation is going to benefit by the foundation laid by the eminent people who worked day and night to utilize the event for the glorification and dignified life.
Job opportunities have been created and our hidden treasures were brought to light for everybody to see. How noble it is!
