It given me great pleasure to write a foreword for this book compiled by Mr.P. Velusamy who was a few years my junior in the V.O.C. Board High School, Kovilpatti, There was an intense earnestness about him even during his school days. He later rose to very high positions in various organizations. But even in his busiest periods he kept in touch with books and book the time to cull the wisdom from the various tomes and present it in volumes such as this one. A ready-witted speaker and a conscientious citizen with social speaker and a conscientious citizen with social awareness, Velusamy has won acclaim in every field he has entered.
