I came across SPANDANA by chance. I was really impressed with the concept as whatever I thought should be there for public service is included by SPANDANA.

' Pratibha Scholarhsips' in particular is a Wonderful Concept. The execution of the concept is admirable. This is based on my personal experience.

One of our relative - a brilliant student who stood first in Prakasam District in Inter could not do so well in EAMCET because he could not afford Good College coaching.

After he took admission and was in dire need for Scholarship, I thought people like him should get help from SPANDANA and it was applied.

Somehow there was no response. I felt something is wrong as in my view he is one of the most eligible persons for scholarship. I wrote a mail to SPANDANA hoping that reply might come with in a week.

To my surprise, reply came immediately and that too from top person i.e Nidamanaru Nageswara Rao garu. After checking back, I was informed that student is not lifting the phone. After due verification, scholarship was granted.

Hats Off to Spandana People for the Concept and the Execution of the same with Total Dedication.
