Presidents Message

Dear Friends, Past Presidents and colleagues of Class of 72.

 I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation,  for placing your trust on me.  This is indeed a great honor bestowed on me, and I promise to do my very best to uphold the traditions and the purpose of this group with utmost sincerity.

 My dear friends,  It is 30 years, since the inception of Royal College Class of 72 which started  in 1987.  This group has been led by dynamic leaders from Royal College who are holding high positions in society.

They served tirelessly to keep this group intact,  gave us valuable advice, and added strength and courage, for us to be the most prestigious group our College has ever produced. I take this opportunity to thank all Past Presidents  who  kept the flag flying high,  at all times

In the year 2017/18,  most of will be reaching the mile stone year of 60.  

The mere getting together frequently has made many things happen.  We have helped our class mates in every possible way, just by passing the information to those who could help.  Businessmen gave money, doctors helped with treating them in their hospitals,  Lawyers helped the batchmates free of charge, in litigation (and also in divorces), Engineers helped in our contribution for school buildings,  and even Undertakers helped us to find time slots when the cremation chamber  was over booked.

It’s the spirit of Royal, which webbed us a family,  to help and to be helped.

 Gentlemen, Class of 72 has done a lot of social work to the community.  We have built Vocational training centers, Sports centers, provided  Safe drinking water for schools in risk areas.

Every year, we donate school bags and equipment to those who come to Royal college after scoring high in Year 5 exams.  Most of them are from village schools and  the smile in their face after receiving the bags is priceless.    

When we donated cataract lenses for 50 - old people, I was in tears, when they thanked us with their trembling hands. 

 People are surprised to hear that we – school mates-meet every month.  We feel young, even at 60, when we are with our class mates.  That’s a fact.

   My dear friends, my first priority as your President is - Finding our classmates with whom, we are not in touch.  Of the 800 classmates, the largest in Royal college history,  we have only 300 who are in our database.  We have also lost the contact details of those who have changed the telephone numbers or the email.

 Dear Friends,  we need your support in reconnecting with  these “non contactable” class mates.  We also need your support to give us the information about our classmates who  need our support -  medical, professional  or just to hold hands when they are  in need or difficulty.

 We will search and reconnect with them in the coming years, doubling up the active numbers  in 2018.

 We will continue give priority to our members who face difficulties in life, seeking medical assistance  or professional assistance.

 Immediate past president Susantha has launched the Medical insurance for all those who have registered in March 2017.  We will expand this to more members in the coming months.

 Our second priority is to keep the  ongoing events that take place every year, help the school, help the community,  and not forgetting to raise funds which enable us to achieve these goals.

 Our third priority-  is to make sure that our class mates meet frequently and have good fun and laughter.

We all will be 60 years soon.   Possibly,  being in our last decade of active life,  keeping our classmates,  “spiritually happy and healthy”  is very important.   Therefore, we are planning many “religious and spiritual” events and few – “purely” spiritual events.

  Dear Friends, Your suggestions and guidance are welcome.  It is your ideas and suggestions which has made this group so great.  I, together with my committee will assure you of smooth functioning of events in the year to come.

 Finally and most importantly I would like to thank all my classmates who  have stood together -  argued, fought, stormed and normed and drowned every dispute in a very very spiritual way.

 Guys!  You are all one great bunch and I am honored to be one of you.

 Thank you guys,  Lets have a great year.

 Thank you.

Dr M Ramasubbu,

President, RC Class of 72,  (2017-18)
