Congratulations to Dhanush!
Many of you may know that Dhanush is a ‘Sakala kala vallabhan!’ His signature can be seen during most of the C.O.M.A events. The four pillars and decoration on it that you see during our major events is one of those. He is an expert in several musical instruments as well, and has performed in several stages with popular singers and bands!
Chitra and Sharreth were very impressed with his talent and offered him to play ‘Edakka’ on stage during their program at Chicago! Congratulations Dhanush!! Wish you great success in your future endeavors!

Malayalam Class 2017-2018
Class of 17-18 concluded the season on May 20th. Twenty juniors and seven seniors completed the course and were given certificates after the last class of the academic year.
COMA has been sponsoring a Malayalam class for the last several years. The class is gaining attention thanks to the hard work of our volunteering teachers Veda Warrier, Venu Nair, Madhu Parameshwaran, Prahlad Trivikraman Indira and Priyadarsini Kumar. Juniors are taught “balapatham” and seniors learn to appreciate Kerala culture, history, and literature.
Our teachers have been volunteering for many years and will appreciate any help with the classes. As the class size is growing year after year, we are looking for additional help in planning and conducting the classes. If you are interested in volunteering or want to know more about the coming academic year (starting in August) please contact us at email@example.com.
Registration for the next academic year will start soon.

By Arya Janardhanan, Grade: 6th
You are everywhere I see,
For life you are the key,
Everyone would agree,
Without you, they would behave badly,
I pour you into my cup with glee,
You move around like the sea,
And into my mouth you flee,
You are very important to me!
