Some More Dates to Remember

Covered by the prayers of Mr. Kirubakaran and Mr. Varadarajan, the venture of SMART began by breaking ground for a future clinic at Kamagiri. From then on I made fortnightly visits to Bettamugulalam, running an out patient clinic in the former worshiping shed of F.M.P.B.

There need not be any other proof to the fact that God preordains our schedule, than that of my marriage to Padmini! We are sooooo(!) different in many things, but amazingly single minded or more clear minded in pursuing with the work at Periamalai (Kamagiri). She has taken the whole burden of looking after the home and let me go (I have not actually earned anything other than my pension for nearly 3 years). She earns and I spend! She is my sponsor, the real unseen pillar of enormous strength.
