Shri Rajeev Kushwah, CVO spoke on the occasion and said that we should always make efforts to converse in Hindi and use as much Hindi as possible in our official communication. Hindi as a uniting language holds different states and languages together, he remarked.

Shri M Venkatesh, our Managing Director explained how the limited knowledge of Hindi helped him when he was posted to Assam in the year 1989- 90. He also recollected his own mother who studied Hindi as a main language 60 years ago in Mysore, at a time when ladies were not preferring Hindi in this part of our country. He remembered her words when she encouraged him to study Hindi as it is our ‘Raj bhasha’.

Shri IV Muraleedharan, DGM – Security proposed Vote of Thanks.

A Cultural programme followed the stage programme. A renowned comedy team of Jimmy Moses (B/o Johny Lever) and a dance troupe performed and entertained the audience. The employees and their family members in large numbers participated in the programme
