History of Kuchipudi clinic:
Pranamya Suri was invited to perform at Kuchipudi village in 2012. Instead of coming back after performance, after speaking with Late Padmashree Vedantham Satyanaraya Sharma, she came to know that there are no proper medical facilities in Kuchipudi. Instead of coming back to USA, she had stayed back for 2 days and had conducted a medical camp which had helped about 400 villagers with free medicines distribution. This was a great success.
Then Echoes of India had conducted a medical survey to understand the specific details of deceases etc.
The survey had given great conclusions which had helped in identifying the location to set up a clinic, types of medical facilities that are needed and types of medicines that are needed etc.
– March 2012: Echoes of India, in collaboration with Kuchipudi Bhagatamela conducted the first medical camp, and provided patients with free medical care and medications. Natyanjali Kuchipudi Dance Schools’s director, Srilatha Suri, funded this project.
– June 2012: Echoes of India established a managing partner (with Raksha Multispeciality Hospitals) , and Mr. Vasanth Suri created a working model for the clinic.
– July 2012: An extensive health survey and retrospective medical record analysis were conducted to collect additional data and assess need.

– October 2012: Mr. Vasanth Suri, director of Echoes of India presented the proposed budget and project plan at Sri Siddendra Yogi Jayanthi Utsavam, in Houston 2012 (organized by Vedantam Kalakshetra). Additionally, Mr. Vedantam Raghava (director of Vedantam Kalakshetra) and Mr. Vedantam Venkat (president of Kuchipudi Bhagavatamela) formally announced their support. Both Echoes of India and Vedantam Kalakshetra began collecting funds after making an appeal.
