Service To Others Is The Rent You Pay For Your Room Here On Earth



Offering a helping hand to the poor and needy is the greatest job one can do to achieve inner peace and satisfaction.

We the Batch of Agros’ 95,Proud Citizens of Punnagai Desam , popularly called as TREND SETTERS have always been Class Apart in whatever we do. In the year 2012 we celebrated our 16 th year Get Together as Ninaithale Innikum at Blue Lagoon Chennai, more than 100 participants attended the GT. As a part of the program, it was decided that our Agros’95 batchwill be committed in giving back to the society in whatever small way we can, hence we got divided into groups and each group chalked out the future plan of projects. This decision was not only in papers but we proved that we will walk the talk. Soon we opened an account with SBI for this purpose and we started our first successful project at AELC Siloam girls boarding school, Tirukovilur. We were very comfortable in doing the project at the boarding home as Rev. Jane Anitha Ilavarasi one of our

batchmate and friend serves as the Home In charge. With this humble beginning over the years we have successfully completed several projects small and big.

Through our Agros’ 95 fund we helped a throat cancer patient Mr. Johnin his chemo treatment and also helped his sister to complete BE by paying the fees for 4 semesters. Though John is no more

Through our Agros’ 95 fund we also helped Master Rajaraman, A child suffering from Multiple Sclerosis ( Brittle bone disorder) to complete his CA course by paying his academy fees and transportation. Today he is in his finals fighting to come up in his life against all odds.

Our batchmates have also helped a poor underprivileged girl from MCCSS an institution for destitute, Chennai, to get married. We have also provided provision for a few months to the home for aged run by the same organization when they faced a financial crunch.

Help was also rendered in a small way to Rotract club Mandaveli through Mr. Venkataprasath for the purchase of stationeries to underprivileged children. Also, a poor man was helped for his medical expense through Mr. Damodaran inUP.

Life as such is challenging and the humans have made it more complicated because life has fallen into class and categories where the rich are getting richer and the poor are dying of hunger. it is heart wrenching to see this situationbecause people are suffering from hunger, lack of education and also some are homeless. This situation is not only painful to those who suffer but also equally painful to those who are sensitive human beings. In that way our Agros’95 is a batch of sensitive people divinely connected with one chord of love committed in serving the community. Our Prayers that this commitment will continue in the years to come until we all walk in this beautiful world.
