Abdul Kalam's driver now a lecturer

Dear All
Two decades ago, Kathiresan was a driver to A P J Abdul Kalam. Now he is a lecturer in Tamil Nadu. The change is the result of the pep talk he got from the former President.

Kathiresan joined the army in 1979. He was trained as an electrical mechanic in Bhopal before being posted as driver to Kalam at Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL) in Hyderabad in the late 1980s.

“I worked as driver for ‘ayya’ (Sir) for five-and-a-half years. He is a very nice person and is responsible for where I am in life today,” Kathiresan said. “I always wanted to finish my studies, which I discontinued after my father’s death. Ayya’s words gave wings to my dreams.”

He studied in the night after his duty hours. “I spent all the salary on studies,” he recalled. After appearing for his Std X exams, Kathiresan finished his BA (History) and MA (History). He left the job in 1996 to pursue higher studies after which he joined the Chief Education Officer’s office in Tirunelveli. He also did his MA (Political Science) and Ph D in History.

On August 6, the 47-yr-old joined as lecturer in Arignar Anna Government Arts College in Salem district. “I had written to him to inform that I had quit DRDL and joined the CEO’s office. I was touched when I got a reply,” he said. “By then, he had become the President. I still have the letter with me.”

He plans to write again to inform the former President about his new avatar.

Celebrating Our Independence

Dear all

Today is 15 August 2009. Exactly 62 years have passed since we, Indians, under the very courageous leadership of the likes of Gandhi, Nehru, Bhagat Singh and many others, won our independence from the imperialism of British rule.

At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance ... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again ......... Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru
These are not mere words of Nehru ... It is an entire nation roaring, declaring and therefore celebrating its hard-earned Independence. It was a proud moment then (We wonder if we really lived up to their expectations) !

Anyways, the day is a national holiday in India. All over the country, flag-hoisting ceremonies are conducted. The main event takes place in New Delhi, where the Prime Minister hoists the National Flag at the Red Fort and delivers a nationally televised speech from its ramparts. A colourful pageant showcasing India’s cultural diversity, symbolic depictions of the country’s advances in science and technology, and a joint display of India’s military capabilities by the armed forces are an essential part of the Independence Day celebrations.

Students of our school also, religiously, conducted a special assembly in the name of India's 63rd Independence Day. Cultural programmes like songs, dance, and drama marked the event. Though it was the magnificent march past which stole the show away. Keep up the good work friends and keep growing with each passing moment ...
Facts apart, we want to know how YOU, as an individual, justify your privilege of being a Free Indian. Tell us why do you deserve this tag...Or rather, Do we really deserve it ? We hope, we really wake up to life and freedom and DO something so that no one dares to put up a question mark on our status of being a Proud, Free Indian...

Let's flood the comments section to discuss our duties while we enjoy our privileges (Freedom Of Speech is just one of the million rights we enjoy everyday, without even realising their values !). Lets unite once again to fight the newly arrived challenges of this era ...

This time, we could not provide you any links to know more about it because we believe nobody else can tell us better... We ought to rediscover our own definitions or make new ones to possibly mark the beginning of a new chapter... On that note, Happy Independence Day to all ...

Also, following is what Aakash (E-member) has to share with us :

India became a 62-year-old independent nation.First of all, we should salute our soldiers who gave their life for us, in 1962 Indo-China war,1965 and 1971 Indo-Pak wars, 1999 Kargil war and saved us from the jaws of the enemy many times. They are ever ready to provide us safety, security and tension free sleep. Our scientists have done extraordinary work and India has attained the capability to sendsatellites and rockets into space and we are now working on a Moon mission...

ENTREGA - Shradha House Function

Hello all

We would want to talk about a group of people who had the courage to change the definition of what it takes to be successful. We are here referring to all these daring Shradhans of our school who declared that Devotion is the key to success. Celebrating their House Function ENTREGA on 1st of August, these young guns of our school surpassed every hurdle, resisted all the odds, challenged and re-challenged their own capacities to stage a magnificent function in this ever-perspiring summer of all time ! Borrowing 'Entrega' from the Spanish dictionary meaning devotion and dedication, to give a name to their celebration, students of Shradha House made sure that they live up to every body's expectations.

Acknowledging Sh. Ravi Prakash Mehrda's (Chief Guest), IPS DIGP(Delhi) and Sh. L.V. Sehgal's (Guest of Honour), Principal, BBPS, Rajinder Nagar kind presence on this occasion, students and teachers left no stone unturned to host a great function. From very soothing vocal performance - SHABAD, to the hard core musical performance by instrumentalists- HARD ROCK (School of rock music), to the very skilled Ventriloquist's act... everything was worth an applause. And yes, the very simple,the very thought provoking Hindi drama - BHAKT KE HAATH BIKE BHAGVAAN was amazing. The lead actors acted as if they were professionals! Also, the Sufi dance, which is considered to be a turning meditation, was very engrossing. All the student achievers were rewarded with prizes and merit certificates. The house report was also read out. Believe us, it was a very well coordinated function, which gave out immense opportunities to its students to showcase their talents.

The success recipe was nothing but the unparalleled dedication shown by all. Hats off to everyone. Shradhans just raised the level of expectations for themselves! Congratulations friends and dear teachers...

Happy Friendship's Day

Friendship Day celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August every year.This tradition of celebrating a day in the name of our friends began in U.S. in 1935. Since then, it has gained immense popularity worldwide. In 1997, the United Nations named Winnie the Pooh as the world's ambassador of friendship. Click here to know more. On this day, people spend time with their friends and express love for them. Exchange of Friendship Day gifts like flowers, card and wrist bands is a popular custom of this occassion.

We take many things for granted in our lives. We take it for granted that the sun will rise again tommorrow without any fail. We assume that our friendships will never suffer. That's not true. We must learn to value our friends and their unconditional love for us. A true friend knows that there's something wrong even when you have the biggest smile on your face. So, don't forget to make your friends feel special on this very day. And yes, you can also drop in Best Friend's wishes, exclusively dedicated for your friends in the comment's section.
