Dear Sir,

It gives me immense pleasure, joy and happiness to see the felicitation of our dear Social & Management Guru. I would like to put in record my appreciation to the Students, Teachers and Management of Patuak Gala College for the kind initiative.

I would like to seek blessings of my 'Ultimate Guru' Dr. ARK Pillai on this day. Pls. accept my pranams. I would also like to seek the best wishes from our 'Action Guru' Dr. Narayan Iyer whom I hold in high esteem at all times.

I cannot express in words the learning I have derived in the short time that I have spent with Dr. Pillai and Dr. Narayan. There is no wealth bigger than the wealth of knowledge. Though, today I am far away, I shall always be a phone call away for IDF. On this auspicious day, I take an Oath of dedicating my services to IDF for LIFE.
