Dr.Chettiar's Correspondence

letter to K.C.Reddi

Alagappa College P.O

      27th November, 56.

Dear Shri K.C. Reddi,

I am just continuing to lie prostrate in bed, almost for a year now, without any movement, and with pain here and there and discomfort all the time through. That is God's will. I am grateful to you for your having kindly looked me up every time you passed through Madras. I look forward to the pleasure and the privilege of meeting you some time when again you pass through Madras. I am enclosing a copy of the letter which I have addressed to you on 26th September when I was in the Nursing Home - the letter which, I have been informed by your Private Secretary, was received while you were out of India and would be placed before you after your return to Delhi. You might have seen the letter or in the midst of your work it might not have been possible for you to go through it. I am writing this letter once again just to request you to try to do your best for Shri Murugesan in whom I am very deeply interested. shall be grateful for whatever assistance you can possibly render to Shri Murugesan in the Neyvell Scheme. I shall ask him to make such applications to such authorities as you may indicate.

You must have come back from your tour of Russia and other countries with broadened mind and a clearer perspective of the needs of our country and the extent of help that could possibly be received from countries abroad. As Minister for Production, you have great work lying ahead of you, and I in my humble way wish your noble and persistent efforts all God's blessing and success.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,

Sd...RM.Alagappa Chettiar

Dr. Sir Shri K.C. Reddi,
Minister for Production
Government of India, New Delhi.
