G Sundararajan, CFO, Sundaram Home Finance presented certificates and mementos to the artistes. No Mikes and speakers are used at the Kutcheri. Organised on the first Sunday of every month, the idea of the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park is to provide opportunities to young budding talent aged below 15 years to present in front of an informal park audience amidst chirping birds and falling leaves. Certificates and Mementos are presented to the artistes by Sundaram Finance. Over 1000 children have presented Kutcheri to-date since the launch in February 2006. Sundaram Finance conducts audition to select the artistes.
