Dr.Chettiar's Correspondence

letter to Hon'ble Mr. Rafi Ahmed Kidwai

      February 16, 53.

Dear Sir,

I have the privilege of sending you my invitation for the inauguration of the building scheme of our Engineering College by President, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, on the 19th February. I have often been dreaming of inviting you to our campus and though your effort and guidance convert the arid tracts into cultivable land. You will also be incidentally interested to learn that there is no difficulty of water supply and as Dr. Lakshmauaswamy Mudallar said the other day on the occasion of the opening of the Electro Chemical Research Institute by Dr. Radhakrishnan, our campus is now floating on a veritable lake. You might kindly remember your kind personal assurance to me that you will instruct one of your officers to come round to Karaikudi and give me the necessary assistance in the matter of cultivation of the land. But no officer has so far come round. I shall be grateful if you could kindly remember our efforts in your kind thoughts and give us such assistance as and when possible. I am now content myself by requesting you for a message and patiently look forward to the day when you could yourself come round and spend atleast few hours in oar campus looking around the various educational institutions and the Central Electro Chemical Research Institute that are functioning in this campus.

With kind regards, Yours very sincerely,

Sd...RM.Alagappa Chettiar

Hon'ble Mr. Rafi Ahmed Kidwai,
Minister for Food and Agriculture
Central Secretariat, New Delhi.
