Samajam President Chelat Divakara Menon said that the feedback from members has been very positive, motiving the Executive Committee to conduct more such events.

“We have also been receiving enquiries from other communities and non-members expressing a keen interest in joining these sessions. We have therefore opened these webinars and other online events to all. This also helps us build cross-community collaboration to a great extent,” he said.
