Chennai, August 24, 2018: I wish all our staff and students particularly those coming from Kerala a very Happy Onam. Unfortunately this year’s Onam falls on the backdrop of the unprecedented flood fury. The flood fury has shown that a calamity of this nature also helps to unite everyone in the common effort of restoring normal life and economic activities. I hope this Onam will further strengthen the unity among the people and thereby help in making Kerala a model for unity in diversity.
