Deputy Commissioner's Message



Dear friends,

I Wish you all a very joyful Onam and Bakrid which are round the corner I am immensely pleased for having got an opportunity to serve here in God`s own Country.. Further I am too delighted to operate from serene Kochi which has been drawing traders, explorers and travellers to its shores for over 600 years. Nowhere else in India, I am aware, could you find such an intriguing mix: giant fishing nets from China, a 400-year-old synagogue, ancient mosques, Portuguese houses and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. The result is an unlikely blend of medieval Portugal, Holland and an English village grafted onto the tropical Malabar. Much to my gladness I found that people here in this part of the country are very pleasant in demeanor and amicable in approach. Kerala has always been high on richness of culture, family values and intellectual pursuits, holding the highest literacy rate in the country. I see wonderful harmony among the people of Kerala in spite of their polygenetic and multi-ethnic origins.

It is Divine Providence that I have taken charge of a region which puts up peak performance, sitting pretty always on the top in the KVS board exam results consistently. That testifies the academic brilliance of the children and diligence of teachers, Principals, besides all other stake holders. I have also taken note of the fact that our children are doing exceedingly well in sports, games, fine arts and fervently participate in all competitions and activities, coming out with flying colours.

My earnest wish is that during the period of my sojourn here, this region should not just sustain the status quo but should obsessively surge ahead to scale newer heights in both scholastic and co- scholastic areas.

Friends, “Rome is not built in a day”. None can reap the fruits of labour overnight. Every step counts in our exciting journey to achieve the seemingly unachievable. Yes! Let’s put our best foot forward to achieve one hundred percent quality results in our forthcoming Board exams for class tenth and twelfth. I wish to christen this ambitious operation as MISSION HUNDRED PERCENT. I have immeasurable faith in your potential and I trust your ability to strive hard towards this goal with passion and purpose. I hope you will all share my zealous vision and hoist the flag of KVS Ernakulum Region aloft at a height that no one else can reach. My dream will remain a day dream if we do not work in tandem with a feeling of one-ness as a committed team with raw determination to achieve the target which we have to set for ourselves. I strongly believe that you are my strength and your welfare is my responsibility.

Kerala is considered as a land of festivals, Onam being the biggest festival in Kerala. It is also one of the most secular festivals. I am given to understand that all religions and communities celebrate Onam which falls in the Malayalam month of Chingam (Aug - Sep), with equal enthusiasm. It heralds the homecoming of Mahabali who is considered as the King. Onam is reminiscent of Kerala's agrarian past, as it’s considered to be harvest festival. It symbolizes the dignity of labour and glorification of human endeavor. The festival also reminds us that gain comes after pain. All we need is - painstaking effort to transform any dream into reality, to see our MISSION HUNDRED PERCENT gets ahead.

On the Eve of the twin festivals during this period, my whole- hearted wishes to the entire community of the State and particularly to the KVS family here. I have spent my entire life  in the  service of Children and will remain so, since they are our life and future.


    Yours sincerely
