A Chatsworth temple will honour the ‘real heroines’, who keep the wheels of the religious institution turning by hosting a concert and high tea on Women’s Day (August 9) at the Shree Emperumal Temple of Croftdene, Chatsworth from 2pm.

The religious institution is situated in Woodcrest Avenue. The temple, which was relocated from Railway Barracks five decades ago, will pay tribute to its dedicated band of female volunteers who clean the temple, polish the brassware and prepare the meals.

Thanigasalan Moodley, chairman of the temple committee, said it is important that gratitude is shown to community-spirited personalities.

“Too often, those who toil and slog without expecting anything in return, are taken for granted. We have decided to pay homage to the group of women, who are the real backbone of the temple, by expressing our appreciation for their services,” Moodley said.

He added that it was a common occurrence that people, who had served the community were only lauded after they had breathed their last.

“The temple committee has decided to identify our female volunteers for commendation so that they will know that their time and sacrifice are appreciated.”

Dr Maanasa Govender, who holds a PhD in psycholinguistics and is an expert on attention and memory will be the guest speaker. She is also an accomplished Bharatanatyam dance teacher.

Dr Govender will touch on the memory-loss syndrome dementia which includes illnesses such as Alzheimer’s.
