I thank you for your kind letter of December 9. I am still confined to bed under doctor's
treatment and have to continue in bed for nearly three months. I hope by the end of
February I will atleast be well enough to go to Karaikudi. I shall be the happiest man to
receive you some time in March, if it is convenient to you to come out to Karaikudi and
inaugurate the building colony which I have already referred to you in my earlier letter.
Our scheme is to put up quarters for all members of the staff in the Campus numbering over
250 in all. Work has in a way started and I hope that with the kind assistance of the
Governments it will be completed speedily. I once again extend to you my personal
invitation to visit our campus and inaugurate the Housing Colony.
Work was immediately started to rehabilitate conditions in the Campus that were created by
the cyclone and I am happy to inform you that all the institutions are functioning
normally as before, though the task of setting right damages to structures etc. is still
With kind regards,
