My dear Dr.
I received your kind New
Year Message and was very glad to go through its contents. I wish the Year will bring you
all happiness and prosperity and that you would win fresh laurels from a grateful public.
I have always held that the
progress made in the University and the achievements during the last six or seven years
are due to your great initiative. Whether in the College of Technology, or in expansion of
Arts & Science Colleges or in furthering colleges of Teaching your initiative led
others to follow your lead. And now your endeavors for an Engineering College is making us
all feel more and more beholden to you. If sometimes those who are not fully conversant
with the picture, express sentiments appreciative of my contributions, I cannot forget
that I owe it to you a great deal for all the success that has attended our labours.
It has been a great source
of pleasure to me to be associated with you in all these endeavours and I wish that you
may ever be blessed with long life, happiness and all prosperity to continue your noble
With kind regards,
