"JAYAM" or "MAKHAM"?- Tamil Nadu Music and Fine Arts University (2013-2016)

   Founder/ Chancellor of Tamil Nadu Music and Fine Arts University, Dr.J.Jayalalitha

To celebrate the birthday of the Founder/ Chancellor of Tamil Nadu Music and Fine Arts University I had planned gala events on every 24th of February during my tenure as Vice Chancellor (2013-2015)  of Tamil Nadu Music and Fine Arts University. I needed a catchy name that would describe Amma. I pondered over her birth star 'Makham" and wondered how it would be to call the Festival "Makham". I convened a meeting with the staff of Tamil Nadu Music and Fine Arts University to finalise the name of the festival. One member of the faculty suggested "JAYAM" . He said it not only indicated Madam's name, it also spelt victory. Instantly liking the sound of "JAYAM" I agreed immediately without a second thought. 

"JAYAM" is the name coined by a faculty member of Tamil Nadu Music and Fine Arts University and like he said the festival was a raging success earning me  congratulatory notes every year from Amma herself!!
