Dr.Chettiar's Correspondence

letter to Madhavan nair

       17th December, 56

Dear Shri Madhavan Nair,

I am sorry to write again from my sick bed, my health being none too well. The foul disease of cancer seems to be raising its ugly head almost everywhere in the body. I plant my faith in God and seek deliverance through His mercy.

In this background you will kindly excuse me for writing this letter on behalf of my very good friend, Sri M. Palaniappan, M.L.A.,(Congress Candidate of Alsoor constituency) Bangalore. Sri Palaniappan has come down to Karaikudi, seen my educational institutions there at work and has an abiding interest for their growth. It is thus my interest in him arises. These are days of elections, and nominations for elections for the Legislature. 1 shall be grateful if you will just kindly bear in mind that I have a very high opinion of the character and capacity for selfless service of Sri Palaniappan.

I hope when you come down south next time, you will kindly look me up because I have no discuss many facets of the same problem, i.e., of getting the Karaikudi Colleges formed into a University. You have such an abundant love for me that I am certain that when you can spare some time and have the proper opportunities, you can influence people in the right direction when occasion arises. Kindly do come, when convenient.

With kind regards, Yours sincerely, Sd.. RM. Alagappa Chettiar ,  ,

Yours sincerely,

Sd...RM.Alagappa Chettiar
