Issue No. 66                                   October 2021

Dear Reader,
Your family Newsletter is back. This issue has three sections. It is hard to believe that 17 years have passed since Gopalan's death. We attended his Srardham today (16-10-2021). The first section (In Memoriam) is in memory of Gopalan. I have reproduced the articles written in October 2004 after his death.

The second section (Fresh writings) contains contributions received for this Newsletter. Santhanam has written an article on 'My experience with three Governors'. The first part of this interesting article appears in this issue. This section also contains the feedback sent by Raghu (Sydney) and Usha on the July 2021 Newsletter.

While going through the archives of the Newsletter, I was pleasantly surprised that more than 100 original articles have been published in the 65 issues of the Family Newsletter. And even more pleasant is the fact that 21 relatives have contributed their writings for the Newsletter. The third section contains the maiden articles of all these relatives. Except Kausalya's article which appeared in The Hindu, all the others were written exclusively for the family Newsletter. I was impressed by the quality of all the articles and I'm sure you will also be impressed. They have been arranged chronologically.

Do enjoy this Newsletter. And please send your feedback by email.

Bye till January 2022.
