Saravanan Murugiah

Candidate for the post of VP Admin

I introduce myself as Saravanan Murugiah more affectionately called by most of us as BATM Saravanan. A short intro of myself to those who are new to Bay Area. A long-time resident of SF BayArea since 1998, been active in BATM organizational activities since 2003. Elected as BATM secretary in 2009, the year when we revived BATM and subsequently executed successfully as BATM President in 2011.

Some of the core achievements during my earlier phase are:

  1. Ponniyin Selvan Drama staged in 2009 for the first time with great work of art by Bhagirathi Seshappan & Sridhar Minor with lots of local bay area talent, aptly supported by a core EC 2009 team

  2. First ever corporate sponsorship in the history of BATM brought in by me signing a deal with Star TV and Vijay TV. Vijay TV was launched here in US at our BATM stage for the first time. This lead to the subsequent planning and templating of sponsorship process for all the later years.

  3. Bharathikku Bharathanjali : a dance drama was staged with Veteran Bharatanatyam exponent Saroja Vaidhyanathan based on Bharathiyar songs.

My genuine ask is, please vote for me to bring BATM to its past glory!!
