On June 21, NAC Jewellers, Mylapore, was lit up as the jewellery brand geared up to celebrate its 50th anniversary since its inception. In honour of the legacy of the founder, the late N Anjaneyulu Chetty, NAC Jewellers unveiled his bust at the store, along with the Golden Week Celebrations for the stores’ longtime patrons and customers. 

Anantha Padmanabhan reminisces

Anantha Padmanabhan, in his welcome address, thanked his customers and employees, along with those in attendance, and spoke about his father, N Anjaneyulu Chetty with fond reverence.

“My father used to say that his two eyes were reserved. One went to his customers, and the other, to his employees. That is how integral they were to his life. And through these years, I have followed the same principle, and I hope that my son and my grandson will also do the same when they take over the company after me,” he shared. 

The dignitaries then unveiled the statue. Chief guest Doraisamy fondly recalled the memories he shared as a customer in the store.

Donations worth Rs 50 lakh promised

As part of the celebrations, NAC jewellers announced that they would be donating Rs 50 lakh to charitable foundations. Cheques of Rs40 lakh, to Anandam Foundation, and Rs 10 lakh, split equally between the Adyar Cancer Institute and Sankara Nethralaya, were donated.
