There was no special guest. There was no noise. There were no advertisements. And, there was no party. But there was a launch, and a special one at that. Cafe Totaram launched five pizza varieties, and it was launched by none other than 30 girl students from Coimbatore Seva Nilayam. They were all toppers from Class I to Class XI.
For co-owner Ranjana Singhal, there could not have been a better way to make that special addition of pizzas to her Cafe that was already treating its customers to tasty snacks. And, it so happened that her guests of honour became her first tasters too. Yes, it turned out to be the girls’ first date with pizza.
“I was sceptical whether they would like the taste of pizzas. But from what I saw I know for a fact that the girls loved them,” Ms. Singhal says.
Coimbatore Seva Nilayam welcomes such initiatives from philanthropists. “When we recognize the efforts of our toppers, other students too get motivated to do well in their studies,” Jayashree Ravi, Secretary, Coimbatore Seva Nilayam says.
The home and school for orphaned girls leaves no stone unturned to keep its inmates happy. When the offer came to have the toppers launch the pizzas, a chain of events followed. Members of Coimbatore Ladies Circle 23 (CMLC 23) that has been regularly supporting Coimbatore Seva Nilayam monetarily and other wise, agreed to join hands with the Cafe to organise the event, and the rest fell in place.
As a proof of their impeccable grooming at the Seva Nilayam, the girls displayed excellent table manners.
All in all it was an evening to remember. The girls carried memories of their first pizza, the CMLC 23 had facilitated the opportunity, and last but not the least it was a fulfilling launch for Ranjana Singhal.
