TTD Joint Executive Officer (Education & Health) Sri Sada Bhargavi said that the women trainees are blessed to learn the making of products from used flowers in TTD-sub-temples.
She was addressing trainees at the Citrus Research Center of Dr YSR horticultural University, near Perur in Chittoor district. TTD has signed an MoU with the University last month to make portraits of gods, paperweights, and key chains with the dry flower technology imparted by the university.
Participating as chief guest the TTD JEO said there was a spontaneous and good response for the agarbattis made from used flowers of the TTD temples and was confident that the production of portraits and other products from used flowers will also become popular. She said local women are selected for the training program in view of their devotion to Sri Venkateswara.
She reiterated that TTD is not engaged in the task for sake of revenue or enterprise but only with the sacred vision to present Swami Pushpa Prasadam to devotees. She said that TTD EO Dr KS Jawahar Reddy had conceived the program for benefit of devotees.
Dr Janakiraman, vice-chancellor of Dr YSR Horticultural University who participated in the program via virtual link said the MoU was aimed at taking endeavours of TTD to another level of devotee-friendly environment. He said the enterprise of making useful goods from used flowers has the potential of becoming an industry soon.
