Proud, privileged and blessed to be the Chief guest at my Alma mater AKJM Jesuit Higher Secondary school, Kanjirappally, Kerala at the annual day and award day 2022 yesterday. Feeling very humbled too. I was overwhelmed with joy to receive a grand welcome and the special warmth by the Manager Rev. Fr. Stephen C. Thadam SJ, Principal Rev. Fr. Augustine Peedikamalayil SJ, teachers, students from lower primary to plus two, their parents and PTA, Alumni leaders. Programme was well coordinated and the school auditorium was full.
I was not the most brilliant student of our AKJM school, but I had the passion in me, to learn more, to write, to articulate well. Jesuit education helped me to polish my skills. Our teachers including the Jesuit fathers gave me the confidence and strength to conquer the world. Thanks to Jesuit fathers, teachers, 1978 batchmates and especially my parents and family.
