I am indeed a happy man
despite my suffering and agony whenever friends and distinguished friends like your good
self call at my bedside. It was in that frame of mind that I received you the other day
when you were kind enough to call on me.
You might remember that
even during that kind and courtesy visit that you made, I tried to 'utilize' your presence
and make a request or two to you in person. One of these requests, you might remember, was
the question of the establishment of some production unit near about my College Campus at
Karalkudi. You were then receptive and kindly directed me to get into touch with Mr.
Govinda Menon of this Region and then send up proposals to you. I am happy to state that
Mr. Govinda Menon himself was kind enough to call on me a couple of days ago, and
naturally I discussed this proposal in some detail. I suggested to him whether it. will be
possible to locate a production unit near about my campus under the scheme worked out for
the educated unemployed. There are nearly 3000 students in our campus, with six colleges
and with different Faculties like its, Science, Commerce, Teaching, Physical Education,
Engineering and Polytechnic. Mr. Govinda Menon said that the Ministry were considering
proposals to establish workshops for the Educated Unemployed and that the locations for
such workshops have not been fixed.
I do not know sufficient
details to give you. In fact, it must be the other way round: I must get the details from
your Ministry. I will just con- tent myself by appeallngto you to locate one of these
units near about my Campus for which we will give the necessary land and your Ministry can
make a reference to Mr. Govinda Menon regarding the suitability of this place. I shall be
grateful if you could kindly consider my request in the background of the thousands of
students who pass through our college campus year after year and do whatever is possible.
I count myself really
unfortunate in that I am not able to do anything myself excepting requesting, or rather,
even embarrassing affectionate friends like you. Anyway, it is that which keeps me
somewhat happy despite my serious illness.. I await your kind reply.
