This week 07-11-05 ePADAM carried ‘orthography’ under the etymology. The best thing about this week’s ePADAM is that almost all the topics had something or other to do with COMMUNICATION whether verbal or non verbal. Kind of gives a nice feeling. But for the very first letter of criticism (?) that commented on the ambiguity of some of the topics in the column there generally appears to be some sort of acceptance(!). The response from the kids is good. We did publish the names of some of the readers who did send across their answers for various small ‘do it’ I gave them. Nice feeling again. Am able to prod those minds that are way back in the rural , ‘upmarket‘ country that is a NO, NO for the business/commercial enterprises who translate everything into a earn-able rupee and that which is not is not their potential territory. How very unfortunate. I want these minds way back in the rows of the schools away from these BHAGYANAGAR’s to fight out and come and join these ranks here and improve themselves and help enjoy a better life. Hope there is at least one mind out there which had learned something from my ePADAM and one individual who has learnt to live a better life helping herself from LifeSkills.

ePADAM & Softskills


At last ePADAM has reached many hamlets and villages and the folks away from the cities and the urban and semi-urban readers. Now there are a few out there who are reaching out for their writing instruments, pulling out their pencils,pens and erasers and post cards and envelopes their hard earned money to pay for the postage to mail their impressions and needs. That gives such a wonderful feeling. There are those kids out there who would be looking forward to my ePADAM and trying to figure out the answers and learn hopefully in the process and build up their English vocabulary and hopefully would use it to improve their own self and the society at large. WHOOPS..WHOA..what a feeling of exultation and accomplishment.

Those few who knew me called up to inform that the page layout, the design, the content had been presented in a nice way and appreciated it.


This too had reached them but then wonder how many of them would come back for the reviews.

Those that read did like it. The language, the style of narration, presentation they liked it. Perhaps it would be difficult to keep them impressed for there is much that is expected.

But then it is a must that the management and the editorial team at Andhrajyothy be thanked and the EDUCATION desk team , Kiran, Umesh, Karunakar and especially Gopi who have given their best to see that the columns presented well. Thank you friends!
