Winner of St. Berchman’s Award for the Best College Teacher in Kerala, 2010

MY VISION AND MISSION

 There is a Universal Rhythm that regulates, controls and promotes evolution, growth, development, emulation and extinction of everything in this world. Observing, harmonising and realising this Cosmic Order for the progress of humanity is my Vision.

Being a part and parcel of this universe and as an individual, capable of attaining wisdom through information and knowledge, my mission is to realise the above vision in life, through Eternal Universal Values like Truth, Dharma, Love, Compassion, Cooperation and Harmony.

It is the state of mind that determines the state of society and state of environment. Hence, nurturing noble thoughts with eternal values that promote sacred words and divine actions are very crucial at this critical juncture, when society and environment are confronting multidimensional crises. Individuals, institutions and society can attain progress at the interface of thoughts, words and actions of wisdom. Life is the text of wisdom and the world is the context of its application.
