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

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 digits then unveiled the statue. Chief guest, Doraisamy fondly recalled the memories he shared as a customer in the store. “I remember, whatever jewelery we would buy, it would always go to Anjaneyulu Chetty’s hands before coming to us along with his blessings.
