Congratulations akka. Hope for many more achievers from our community. However I thought we had forgotten the ambitious personality Rao Bahadur H.J. Belle Gowder who had enlightened our community through education. I hope, to keep our community identity we need to erect a statue in ooty or coonoor and explain to the world about his achievements through tourists. This may be a small gratitude we can show to our beloved great personality.
