OSCAR 2014 - A Report and the Theme Song "Paradise - July 8, 2014
OSCAR 2014, which got over last week was a major success! We had 32 schools taking part (The highest number of schools taking part in an Interschool Culturals contest in Trichy), around 2,500 participants took part in the over 30 events and 2 workshops and 2 Informal events. Over 700 alumni attended the event, where RSK emerged the Overall Champions. The theme for OSCAR 2014 was "Carnival/Mardi Gras", as it also served as a curtain raiser to kick off the Grand Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the School. As all of you are aware, the GJC will culminate in GAGA this coming Friday and Saturday.

Earlier, on the 4th of July, all the people gathered under the Banyan Tree, in one voice, cried aloud in excitement at the top of their voices to declare OSCAR 2014 "Open". These kids were our Chief Guests for the Day!! Mr M Ramasubramani, the Inspector General of Police, Trichy was the Chief Guest and Prof Raghavan of NIT Trichy was the Guest Of Honour for the Valediction Ceremony on the 5th. It was a remarkable success, considering the restrictions that the Organisers had to work with.

We released 3 Songs during OSCAR 2014 (The Days by Jagan and Surya, Engu Ponaalum by Jerome and Surya, and Paradise by Adil and Vijay). There were live performances of OSCAR Songs, including an Unplugged performance by Adil and group.

Presenting below, the song "Paradise". We uploaded this on Youtube for all alumni to listen in, and enjoy!

OSCAR 2013 Theme Song Video on YouTube - Nov 2013
Hi All, For those who missed the OSCAR event, and the Theme Song, here it is:
The theme for the video is - The future of RSK. So, we went to all the Primary Schools and had every child write the word 'OSCAR' on white cloth material. These hand-written messages were then used to adorn the entire Campus on OSCAR days. This was our way of making everyone a part of OSCAR.
The cheer which went up when the song was screened, and when the kids saw familiar landmarks can never be explained. For that, you would need to come down to OSCAR 2014!
The song is the same as last OSCAR's (2011), but the song was completely redone with better quality.

The 2011 version video is here: (The theme for which was the "Grand Homecoming")

Hope you enjoy the song as much as we enjoyed creating it.

Thank you very much for your wishes on the Theme Song and video, on behalf of the band that created the Theme Song (Adil Nadaf, the composer, is a budding musician in Bangalore in his Final Year of Engineering. He is an Old Student of RSK from the batch of 2009).

The Tamil Version of the Theme song can be heard here: This song was performed live on OSCAR Inauguration. We never expected Annai Marathanalil to be the major hit that it turned out to be - it was supposed to be just the base lines for the English original. Adil said it deserved being a song on its own, and well, Annai Marathanalil happened! :-)

When I wrote the lines for the English original in 2011, it took us just 30 minutes to get the full song written out - as it was easy to capture our longing to be back where we all came from. In 2013, I was in familiar territory - though thousands of miles away in Boston - when Annai Marathanalil was born. It is really nice to know you all are enjoying it; feeling nostalgic about the good, old days; and appreciate it.

The lines:
"Annai Marathanalil,
Vilayaada Vandhom;
Kavalaigalai marandhu,
Sattru urangi selvom..."
They capture our memories and feelings about the Banyan Tree, don't they?

This year, OSCAR - Old Students' Celebrations At RSK is set to be a much bigger and grand event. In addition to the usual inter-school competitions for schools in and around Trichy, this edition of OSCAR will hold pro-shows (Guest performance by professional singers and dancers), workshops for students and other informal events as well.

It does not end with that. This OSCAR shall not only be a frenzy and thrilling experience to all the students of various schools but is also going to showcase the beginning of GAGA celebrations - Curtain Raiser for the Golden Jubilee Celebrations (GJC) of our school which will be held during the Valediction of OSCAR'13. As always OSCAR'13 will be a nostalgic and an everlasting memory in our lives.

The schedule for the two days is as follows:
-> 08:00am to 09:00am - Inauguration of OSCAR'13

-> 12:30pm to 01:00pm – lunch for staff (present & retired) and alumni
-> 02:30pm to 04:00pm – OSCAR'13 valediction and GJC Curtain Raiser Ceremony
-> 05:00pm onwards – High tea with all alumni and discussion for GAGA celebrations

Let us come together to celebrate the childhood days spent in the nurturing arms of our Banyan tree, the friends we made, the school trips we went to, the small fights we had, the crush of our teenage days and the life turning moments of our board exam. We eagerly look forward to your presence and it would be a delight to have you there to make this celebration a memorable one.

Also, it will be of great help to us if you could send photos of your school days to us so that we could compile them to document/present it in the Golden Jubilee Celebrations.

OSCAR and Golden Jibilee Celbebrations
Hi All,

It's time for some news long waited... I hope it gets the required minds and bodies ignited to work. It is finally time for another edition of Oscar and the much awaited Curtain Raiser for the Golden Jubilee Celebrations (CR-GJC)of RSK! :)

I had a rare privilege of meeting the new Principal of RSK, accidentally, with Hari Kumar and Sanjeeban Sarkar. Both the Principal and VP want the alumni to conduct Oscar 13 and to have the CR-GJC.

The crux of the meeting is as follows:
1. A new committee would have to formed of alumni who would work on making Oscar'13 happen
2. The day following Oscar'13 is reserved for the CR-GJC, wherein committees for the GJC would be appointed. This must be the first of its kind reunion with participation from all batches!
3. The GJC would be sometime in the first week of June'14 which must be the biggest event so far in RSK's history
So for the above to happen,
1. we would need a very active pool of people based in Trichy to run around and do the work... people need to be elected to discharge their responsibilities with authority... so a meeting would have to be conducted next sunday i.e. 21/7/2013 for selecting/electing the office bearers in RSK/KC. Request the members from the last 2 committees to co-ordinate and make this meeting happen (some names i recollect apart from the 3 of us who met Princi are Manush S. Rowaine Aravind Kumar Jerome Jesuraja Sowmyan Rao Shagun Ajmera Shyam Swaminathan Vignesh Panneerselvam Palaniappan Sn)
2. the alumni and teachers data base on which @binoj david was working on through needs to be updated and kept current so that the above events are conducted with great grandeur and with large numbers participating!
Request all of you to look for these dates (starting with July 21, 2013) and to plan trips to Trichy accordingly!

OSCAR and Golden Jibilee Celbebrations
Dear RSKites,

Thank you for your enthusiasm, support and blessings. From the overwhelming amount of mails and calls that I got, I can see your willingness to contribute to Oscar by your presence, guidance or through any other possible way. Through this mail we, the Organising Committee of Oscar, wanted to involve you in the proceedings of Oscar.

We are glad to inform you that the Oscar’13 Rules Book and the Invitation Kit is ready and we will begin dispatch by the end of this week. If there are any schools that you would like to have in Oscar’13 specifically, kindly let us know. We will be glad to invite them. This year, we have workshops on Origami and Pop Up cards, Data structures and Algorithms and Photography. These workshops will help students understand where their real passion lies.

This time, Oscar will not just be a stage for the budding students but will also be a platform for the alumni to showcase their talents. A lot of old students have expressed their wish to perform under The Banyan once again during the Golden Jubilee Year of our school. So this year, apart from the regular proshows, we will also bring our alumni under the spotlight. If you wish to relive those memories by getting back on the stage for another performance under our Banyan tree, please contact me or our Cultural Secretary Vignesh P (9487366850).

Divya Manivannan.
Joint Treasurer,

OSA RSK Newsletter: A BIG thank you
Dear family members!
As the curtains of OSCAR'11 have been pulled down, we feel very happy and joyous!
§ A very grand reunion on alumni and staff – former and present
§ Montfort brothers and a montfortian school back at RSK after their exit
§ Live web hosting of the main stage events
§ We had pro shows with music bands electrifying the school, dance troupes driving the audience crazy!!!
§ Workshops on Robotics!
§ Exclusive Media coverage on Trichy Times and so much more…

We deem it a great pleasure to thank all of you for your support and encouragement! And a much much much bigger thanks for all those who came and participated in the event! Thank you!
Despite local elections, OSCAR’11 witnessed 18 schools in and around Trichy and Savitri Vidyasala Hindu Girls Hr. Sec. School emerged victorious at the end of the 2 day fierce battle!
The OC is overwhelmed with the feedback it got and is getting and of course there were a few unintended lapses as well. Let us work on these mistakes and ensure that the gaps get plugged before our next edition of OSCAR, OSCAR’12

Here are a few things which we would like to share with you... Things which shouldn't miss your attention and should be executed immediately. :) They are simple.
1. Mark your calendars for Jan 21 and 22, 2012 (Saturday and Sunday AND NOT JAN 28 and 29, 2012 as decided in the meeting) to be present at Trichy. We will be having a very important meeting wherein the future of the OSA will be chartered and we will discuss on what we as alumni are going to do for the Golden Jubilee of RSK... Lookout for more details in our subsequent communications and Boarders do look out for a very special update!!!

Dear All,

Oct 29 and 30 was OSCAR at RSK, and this year's OSCAR had its own share of excitement and highlights. I hope to see a report on OSCAR 2K10 soon, which should be circulated to this bigger audience as well. An exclusive website for OSA is also being built ( and it is in its final stages before release.

At the end of OSCAR 2K10, some of us 'Senior' Old Students met up in the sidelines and started ideating on the bigger milestone - The RSK Golden Jubilee! As all of us would know, RSK was started in 1964 and 2014 marks the Golden Jubilee Year.

Towards this, I request and invite all Alumni to work together as one unit for making the Golden Jubilee celebrations a grand success. We can create a core Committee to start off with. We are also going to reach out to all Senior and Super-senior Old Students to bring them back to School for the Celebrations.

By this email, I would like to request members in this Group to send in your interest to be a part of this Core Committee by sending an email back to me. We can then get started on the next steps.

Hi everybody
It is time once again for the teachers medical camp. we propose to have phase 1 on 4th and 5th of september. On 4th the camp will be at the school premises and on 5th at Thillainagar.We have not asked for any money this year hoping to use the left over funds from last year. We would like to welcome everyone interested to join us.

A group of alumni are working on setting up a trust exclusively for the benefit of the RSK teachers. Henceforth we will probably be contributing funds to this trust instead of the OSA account which is used for all OSA activities.

People interested in volunteering their time, effort and participate in fund raising activities, kindly let me know.

Folks, I think most of you might be aware that Dr. Jagaram (88 batch) has been conducting medical camp for our teachrs for the past three years. This is funded by Alumni donations collected from all over the world and also Dr. Jagaram and other Alumni's free services and use of equipment. This year the collections have been running low and am not sure if we even broke even. Please visit our RSKAlumni yahoo group page ( to see some pictures of the medical camp and also information on the amount collected, spent, etc,. In the future there is a plan to change this annual fundraising into a medical insurance plan in which the premiums will be paid for by the interest earned on the fund. More will be posted as plans and information is available.

A few alumni sounded me regarding the golden jubilee celebration of the school which is in 2014. They wanted to start a fund raising on behalf the OSA and contribute something big and unique to the school. I guess i have not heard anything of that sort having been done in any Trichy school. I spoke to the principal regarding this asking for any suggestions from the school. We could finalise on one of that rather than us forcing one down their throat

Subject: Teacher's Camp 2008

Hi everybody,

It is time to start thinking about the teacher's camp again. We have Rs.73503 left in our a/c from last year. A total of 99 teachers participated in the camp last year.I expect the total number of teachers who worked in RSK since its inception to be around 230. even the school office does not have the exact numbers. based on this approximate figure, I hope we can achieve the half way mark this year. Last year i had my fair share of bouquets and brickbats.However the biggest achievement was the change of heart of at least 30 teachers who felt sorry that they had missed out on the camp for various reasons.

I propose that we have phase 1 of the camp on 5th September and phase 2 on 7Th September. Any suggestions on improving the scope of this program is most welcome. I would personally suggest some form of group medical insurance to cover the teachers for interventional treatment. Perhaps somebody from the insurance sector can guide us better.

Subject: Obituary - Mrs Judy Sebastian

Dear All,

You might have heard by now the very unfortunate news about Mrs Judy Sebastian, who passed away on Christmas Eve. Judy Miss, as she was affectionately called by all of us, was suffering from Cancer for a while but from the last that I had information on, she was getting better. So, this comes as a total shock to me.

Miss had around 35 years of experience teaching English in the Junior and Main Schools. I guess she also handled Social Sciences for Junior School, but I am not sure.

One of those gems of RSK, Miss would be missed very badly. Her beautiful smile and her kind and affectionate nature would be lost forever. The coming generations at RSK would miss one more of her stalwarts. But then, she will always remain in our memories as the lady who stood tall all the same.

Let us all join hands and pray to God that He gives Miss' family all support and strength in this time of tragedy. We feel the loss within each of us as well.

May her soul rest in peace. And it pains me as I type this. Personally, Judy Miss was one of my favourite teachers at RSK, and (I believe) she liked and cared for me a lot too, just like she did about all her other students.

Hi everybody,

the school conducted the 44th annual athletic meet on july 15th. Justice A.P.Shah, chief justice of madras high court was the chief guest. the sports day was much grander than my days. The technical improvement with the passing times is obviously one of the reasons. On behalf of the alumni, myself and my cousin Dr.Sripriya(1986)were invited to distribute the prizes for one event each conducted on that day. I have handed over all the cheques for the teachers health camp to the school.the total works out to around 1.6 lakhs. The exact figure can be told only after encashing the dollar cheque. I will keep you informed about it.

Regarding the camp proper, this is the tentative programme.
September 4th - investigations to be conducted for all teachers past and present living in town area at Indian Medical Association Hall along with breakfast. September 4th is a school holiday
September 5th - investigations for teachers living around township along with breakfast
September 9th - camp proper at school premises along with lunch.
So far 6 doctors have confirmed participation, 3 have not yet confirmed, one has declined. I am yet to contact 4 more.

Old students’ gesture for their teachers - Hindu Newpapaer Article
"The Old Students’ Association of R.S.K. Higher Secondary School conducted a free master health check up for their teachers to coincide with the Teachers’ Day celebrations.

36 parameters covered
The master health check up, covering 36 microbiological parameters besides ECG, was conducted for the first batch of teachers at the Indian Medical Association Hall on September 4 and at Montfort Hall in the school the next day for the second batch. Ninety-eight present and former teachers, including principal P. Varadarajan and vice-principal D. Rajkumar, attended the health camp. The idea of a health camp was prompted by retired Physics teacher Rajagopal, said association vice-president Dr. S.S. Jagaram.

Funds mobilised
The association mobilised funds by reaching out to its members through its website and received contributions to the tune of Rs.1.66 lakh.
It planned to conduct ultrasound and pap smear testing for the women staff on September 9.
Doctors from among the old students in around the city would visit the school to interpret the medical results.

Congratulations,to you and your team of doctors for making the medical camp at RSK a great success. It has created awareness among good many of our teachers (particularly,me!) regarding the need for regular medical check-up.I thank you, all the doctors and the old students who had spontaneously responded and contributed to raise the necessary funds. I suggest that you put on the RSK web-site a detailed report on the camp regarding the nature of medical tests conducted and the profile of doctors who helped us. We wish you success in your future endeavours.

I am told that recently our dear old RSK took on some other name. My name is Meer Iqbal Hussain. For me its going to be RSK for ever. I passed out in 1977. I studied in RSK for ten years. Its been a long time. Somebody once said that time vanishes like snowflakes. Indeed it has . I knew people like Thomas , Jensen , Anupama, Renuka , Arthi, Raviprakash , Sudhakar, Subbaiya, Katari Pandian , Mark Morris , Krishna Kumari , Kishore , Padmaja , Neelima [who left school in the third standard] , Saraswati, S. Jayashree , Beena Moses the etherial beauty who I ve heard is no more , and a lot more people. Among the teachers were Bro.Paul , Bro Stephen , Shirley Miss and Hemachandran Miss [Biology].

I have come several times to RSK during hoildays , and stood alone at its gate , watching the green Tuesday assembly lawn and the pink paper flower trees by the gate , reminiscing the gone by days, hearing the old voices. Would that someday I meet those people who enriched my life.

May God bless and enrich the lives of all those who have crossed the folds of RSK.

Subject: proposal for the annual medical check up programme for the teachers of RSK
Date: Sat Dec 16, 2006
Hi everybody,

I am Dr. S.S.Jagaram, batch of 88, a practising orthopaedic surgeon based at Trichy.I am the guy who proposed the annual medical check up programme for the teachers of RSK.Looking at the way the discussion was going, I thought that I will interfere and first make the proposal clear before people start putting their views.

Unlike most of you my association with RSK still continues in the form of my daughter currently doing her KG II. I run into a few teachers as and when I visit school. A few of them are my patient's too. Basically the idea of the camp started because BHEL has withdrawn medical facility for the teachers for the past 5 years. A few of them are afflicted with chronic ailments and are in a bad shape financially. I believe one librarian is living on the street (no exaggeration). Basically they were looking for some kind of health insurance though they were not going to voice it publicly.

Health insurance is going to cost a packet year after year. The next best thing was to organize a master health checkup. I could organize one costing a couple of lakhs myself by mobilizing sponsorship, but it is going to be a one-time affair, practically meaningless. If this was organized yearly and appropriate intervention done, we< could probably achieve something..

When I talked to the principal, Rajagopal sir and Rajkumar sir they were quite enthustiastic. They wanted a formal letter and I am reproducing the letter word for word.


At the outset, I would like to thank you for inviting me to your chamber to discuss the proposed RSK Teacher's Annual medical check up schme. I would like to put the sam on paper for further perusal and alterations if any to be made.

(1) We, the old students of RSK propose to conduct an annual medical check up for our teachers
(2) The health check up will be conducted utilizing the services of doctors who were old students of RSK and their colleagues.
(3) This camp starting from 2007 is to be conducted s an annual event. From 2008 this camp will be conducted as part of teacher's day celebration.
(4) All teachers past and present who have worked in RSK are eligible to take part in the camp.
(5) The camp will consist of initial 2 days of screening where the teachers will undergo blood tests, ECG, Bone densitometry and other lab investigations deemed necessary in batches.
(6) Breakfast will be served to the teachers on those two daysto enable us to take fasting and post prandial lab tests.
(7) The consultation with the specialists will be on a Sunday forenoon. Lunch will be served to both the teachers and the doctors at the venue after the camp.
(8) The estimated market value of the proposed investigations per teacher will be not les than Rs.1500/=. Around 200 teachers past and present are eligible to take part in the camp.
(9) The money for the camp is proposed to be mobilized in the form of donations from the alumini of the school.
(10) The maximum individual contribution that an alumini can make is Rs.500/= only or its equivalent in any currency. This upper ceiling is kept so as to enable maximum participation year after year.
(11) The amount credited will be kept in a separate account namely "OSA RSK-Teachers Medical Fund". This account will be jointly managed by the principal and a representative of OSA.
(12) Donations will be kept updated in the website Depending on the success of the camp further alterations can be made such as provision of group medical insurance etc.

We would like you to add your suggestions to make this scheme a grand
Thanking you,

After this I was called to address the old students at OSCAR. It was pointless since most of them who came were still in college and not in a position to contribute. I am willing to take the responsibility of organizing this camp yearly. However I don't want anything to do with the financial part.

I think now you could get the discussion going

Re: [rskalumni] Teacher's health camp - fund raising update
Hi all,

the reason to post numbers is to avoid accounting issues in the future. If you do not want me to post numbers for you specifically, send me an email (individually) and and also mention it when you send the check in. Since these checks are drawn to an individual who is serving as a conduit to divert it to a larger cause, it is important that we maintain transparency.

Regarding contributing larger and smaller amounts, we have had varying responses (all good) for different drives in the past. Folks have contributed where they have the most attachment. (e.g., students who felt a special attachment to Chellapillai sir help champion that drive). It is typical in most academic settings when raising funds from alumni to have large variations. Variations are a function of many things (incl. if you hit the jackpot betting in vegas last night :)). Please contribute what you can when you can. If you have ideas of contributing in kind, let us talk about (e.g., hosting a web career counselling session)

Ideally, I would like to set this up as a foundation for all future years but I do not think we will be able to hit that without one or two large contributions to kick us off. If you are interested in thinking about it, let me kow and we can have a dialogue separately and come back to the group with a proposal

    Yesterday Chellapillai sir called me up and asked me to thank each one of you for your support. He was able to speak well and is on his road to recovery. He became quite emotional and kept expressing his gratitude to each of you. If any of you would like to speak to him, his telephone number is 94435 78099.

    As alumni of a wonderful institution, I am confident that we will continue to come together and express our gratitude and support to RSK and the faculty who moulded us into responsible citizens.

    Hello Ganapathy,
    Today the amount is transferred into my wife account. I’ll inform this to Sellapillai sir. Sellapillai sir asked me to convey his thanks to all of you.

    (Deen is ChellaPillai Sir's son-in-law)

    Greetings all,

    Yesterday, thanks to contributions of many alumni, $1972.36 (minus a transfer fee of $16) was transferred to ChellaPillai Sir's daughter's bank account. I have not spoken to ChellaPillai Sir yet but I am pretty sure that he will have a good diwali, a little less worried about his health and his family's future. Perhaps, our small contribution will speed up his recovery!!

    We have done well as a cohesive force. Hope, we will join hands again in the future for another worthy cause.
    Happy Diwali to all!!

    Dear friends,
    While our friends abroad have started their collection towards the medical treatment for Mr. Chellapillai in full swing, it is quite sad to note that there has not been much activity at the local level. I am sure that all of us remember how Mr. Chellapillai made the Tamil classes entertaining and fun. He joined school when I was in Class 8. After being exposed to the traditional Tamil pundits, his arrival was a whiff of fresh air. He made both prose and poetry very interesting. Outside the class, he was friendly and fun loving and would take part in all our activities. His take off on some of the other teachers would send us to raptures.

    I have so far received a commitment of Rs 13000/- from the local alumni. I am sure that we can all do much better. Please contribute whatever you can and I am sure it will be a small way of expressing our thanks to him. Please be assured that all your payments will be properly accounted and handed over to Mr. Chellapillai. I will put up the list of donors on this forum once the payments start flowing.

    With best wishes and regards

    Subject: Collection of funds for Mr. Chellapillai

    Hi! guys,

    Now that Ganapathy has taken the initiative to collect the overseas funds for Mr. Chellapillai, someone needs to do the same in India. If none in Trichy is willing to take up the responsibility, I volunteer to take charge of collecting the local funds and handing over the same to Mr. Chellapillai's family.

    For guys who don't know me, I will give you a brief.
    Was at RSK from KG II to 12th Standard (passed out in 1980), B.Tech(Mech) from IITM, worked with L&T for 1 year, PGDM from IIMC, worked with NIIT for 2 years, TCS for 2 years, since 1992 running my own computer firm at Tuticorin.

    Let's act fast and ensure that we provide timely help to Mr. Chellapillai.

    Regarding the medical insurance scheme for the teacher's and their families, a group insurance policy would be ideal. Any old student working with ICICI Prudential could work out a good deal.

    Subject: ChellaPillai Sir - status report and fund collection
    September 18, 2005

    Dear Alumni,

    My sister, Jayanthi and her husband Jayaram, visited ChellaPillai Sir at his residence last Sunday. Here is what they have heard and observed :

    1) At the current moment, ChellaPillai Sir is at a significantly reduced capacity of his original self. He is not able to walk properly (drags himself around) or sit properly. One of his eyes appears to be not functioning; he is unable to read or recognize colours or dial on the telephone.

    2) Thanks to the support of his family and the powers beyond us, ChellaPillai Sir is showing good recovery since his accident in May and subsequent coma in June/July. He was able to recognize my sister (who passed out in 1983. He was also able to recollect her son and daughter who are currently schooling in RSK) and is doing so of others. His memory is still a bit weak and it appears that he may be unable to fully retain what is being said and what he is saying.

    3) A month or so prior to the accident, ChellaPillai Sir had conducted the marriage of his daughter (we all understand what that means). His son is in college. His wife works in RMS (railways mail system). In the normal course of life, ChellaPillai Sir would have accepted employment from a local school to help manage their needs. The turn of events, however, has forced the family to secure loans for his treatment and hence bear additional burden.

    I hope, this helps us comprehend the situation. I am positive that the family needs some help. Let me know if you have any concerns.

    Here are my recommendations:
    1) Alumni in the US who would like to contribute, please send checks to my name (Ganapathy Sankar) Please send in your contributions by Oct 14th.

    2) I will add up the contributions and wire the money to ChellaPillai Sir's account on Oct 15th.

    Lets help in some small way and see how it goes. My sister will be talking to the family on a regular basis. In my opinion, it would be very honorable of us if we do not ask ChellaPillai Sir's family how they spent the money.

    Looking forward to your contributions,
    Ganapathy Sankar

    Subject: After Candella 2005 and news about Mr Chellapillai
    August 15, 2005

    Hi All,

    I was at the OSA-organised Candella 2005 at School. A wonderful event that showcased the talent of our students from Classes VI to XII, Candella was a grand success. Despite the fact that the 'creamy' layer of those participating in Culturals were away participating (and losing, incidentally) at Campofez, the guys who were left back at School to participate in Candella put up a great show, in fact even eclipsing some of the current reigning culturals guys at School! It was an event that was wonderfully managed and planned. And all the events held were really innovative, especially a couple of events like 'Ideas' - where teams were asked to come up with a presentation on some social awareness topics. The other was an event caleld Onstage-Extravaganza, which combined everything from dramatics to individual talents being displayed. At the end, Montfort House won the Overall Championship trophy.

    An electtion for the new office bearers of OSA was held after the function. I guess the OSA would send a formal note on the same.

    What I wanted to specifically point out in this mail is one news that disturbed me. Mr Chellapillai, from the Tamil Department retired last year. He was riding a bike one evening some 2 or 3 months back when he was hit from the rear by a speeding lorry. Sir lay unconscious and unattended for nearly 2 hours on the side of the road before help reached him. He slipped into a coma, and did not regain consciousness for nearly 2 months. He regained consciousness about a couple of weeks back, but has no memory of the past, and does not remember much. Mr Rajkumar was trying to help him recollect Mrs Ammukutty, me and a few other teachers. But, he could not. Also, I heard that his family has spent his entire life savings and his pension money and gratuity and retirement benefits on the treatment. This is a very sad thing indeed to happen. I guess we should try to do something about it. Suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks and Regards,
    (Class of 96)

    The Teachers' Emergency Fund discussion that was going on sometime back had to be shelved because of a number of reasons, including lack of enough support and encouragement from within the alumni itself. I guess what you meant was the discussions we were having after the problem with Mr Veeraiyyan's wife. The point is, we need to have a proper support from both the School management as well as from the majority in the alumni network. The last time we had the discussions with school, when it was Bro Berchmans who was Princi, we were asked how we could handle the situation where it is not a teacher who is directly impacted, but someone close to him/her.
    I was also speaking with Bro Mariannan, the Principal, when he told me that the School itself was trying to get some funds raised. This could be by means of an amount to be collected from the students as well as donations from well-meaning alumni. A concrete plan is not ready yet.
    In the meantime, we need to work something out for this particular case with Chellapillai Sir. The Class Of 96 (my batch) plans to collect some amount from the batch members to be paid to Sir.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Dear All,
    It is sad to know that our dear Tamil teacher Mr.Chellapillai has been critically injured,presently in a coma stage and his family has exhausted all available funds including his retirement benefits(I believe he retired last year).
    There has been some debate going on in emails as to the nature of help that the alumni can probably think of not only for him but in general all the faculty. One small suggestion,if permitted,from my side. We have an estimated 3500 alumni across the world.A corpus fund can be formed in the name of Teachers and a specified sum of money can be allotted to be given to each retiring teacher / retired teacher. Say,for example if all put together we garner about 50 lakhs(This is not a big amount considering 3500 alumni and many NRIs) per annum the interest factor would itself amount to close to 4 lakhs and this amount can be given to 2 teachers who would retire.We should also help the teachers who have already retired.They should be allowed to withdraw this amount as and when they require after they are eligible if need be with interest also.This would add a little bit of confidence to their lives,the people who really mattered to us to bring us all to the present standards of life. Alternatively,they can decide whether they want the amount as a lumpsum or as a monthly pension and I feel that the latter is always better.

    The corpus fund can be increased year after year and so can the benefits to the teachers.Forming a Fund is an easy task and implementing is also easy.Let us not get into complexities of speaking to Present or Past Princis and dilute the spirit of the issue as i feel that no consultation or permission is required in this regard.
    A generous contribution,amount left to the discretion of each alumni,whether NRI or not is immaterial would go a long way. Request one and all to deliberate on this issue and make it your success.

    hi all,
    what worked in the past with Veeraiyan sir in a similar situation in the past was one point of contact in the US and one point of contact in India coordinating collection of funds and channelling it. This needs to be followed with a couple of timely emails on how Dr. Chellapillai is progressing post treatment.

    Ganapathy, can you be the point of contact in the US? Any takers in India? A fairly recent graduate based in Trichy would be ideal.

    Subject: Old Students Association
    July 15, 2004

    OSCAR 2004 is scheduled for August 13 and 14. Friday and Saturday.

    A Reunion is also planned for August 14, once the OSCAR event is done. A substantial amount of money has been collected, largely through the Old Students (Thanks to many Old Students from the Class of 96 and from RSKites working in Infosys, amidst many others), and a few corporate sponsorships. roughly, Old Students from the Class of 96 and from Infosys have been together able to contribute Rs 17,000 towards this year's OSCAR 2004. This is also a request to the OSA to have a strict maintenance of accounts. OSA, for its plans going forward, would certainly need more such patrons.
    OSCAR 2004 has been redefined to move away from a Cultural Competition to a confluence of events to help a student shape himself/herself better.
    OSCAR has the following for its caption - A Cornucopia of Triggers; a confluence of ideas!
    The logo for OSCAR 2004 would be circulated shortly. OSCAR has been split into 4 verticals - Cultural Extravaganza, Career Guidance Session for IX and X Std Students, Open House Counselling for XI and XII Std students, and Model United Nations Assembly. Cultural Extravaganza - The following events would be held - Manoranjan (Variety entertainment), Grand Quiz, Pot Pourri, Tamil Poetry Writing, Tamil Pot Pourri, Admad, Art Events and JAM. Career Guidance Session - This would be half hour interactive sessions for IX and X Std students. This would be on Friday, August 13. We have identified Resource Persons for the Engineering/Management/Visual Media streams. We are looking for Resource persons for the Medical/Law/ streams. Participating schools could send 10 students to this session. If any of you reading this, and who would be available for the 13th of August, please let me know at vijay_premkumar(at) Open House Counselling - This would be for XI and XII Std students. Around 30 to 40 Old students would form the Resource Persons for this, which would be a question and answer discussion session between the students and Old students. For more details, please get back to me. If anybody of you would like to be a resource person, please let me know asap. Participating schools could send 10 students to this session.
    Model United Nations Assembly - MUNA - Each school represents a country that is a member of the United Nations. They would simulate a UN General Assembly in session, discussing a topic and how the various 'countries' are handling that topic. The work on brochures and covering letters and posters are done. Schools would be despatched the covers soon.

    where/who I need to send my contribution to for OSCAR? You could send a cheque for the amount, payable to OSA- RSK, and send it to the School's address, addressing it to OSA RSK, C/O Principal, RSK Higher Secondary School, BHEL Township, Trichy 14.
    We shall keep you updated of developments as and when we have more news.

    Subject: RSK abroad and mentor networking yahoogroups
    June 26, 2004

    Unlike in some major schools and colleges of our country, we have not 'networked'. There exist no Fraternity/sorority feeling/actions that binds us together. If a bunch of rskites work in a firm, would they like to network there, may be bring in qualified rskites into the firm, it sounds like nepotism, but its more of building the RSK base wherein as a tighter, bigger group we can do something to our school. For your info our computer lab needs major revamping, they are still using 486 machines there. Our library needs more books. The rskites who graduate and go to some college/company should be guided by a senior rskite there.

    Please do not think I am discriminated rskites in India, but its more difficult to bring in rskites who are abroad into a single forum for doing something useful for RSK by contributing generously to a corpus fund (either an existing one, if there is one or to a fund that has to be created). This is also to help rskites who come to USA/other countries for study/work. This, I feel is would be the beginning of the 'networking' I was talking about.

    The second, the more important database is the mentor network. This is for rskites who are willing to mentor, counsel present rskites. Nowadays even school kids send emails and browse the web. For the ones who cannot access the Internet, mentors will share their snail mail address with those rskites to write/receive letters. One may offer general counseling (students need them badly as they pass through their teens), advises on specific fields of science or anything.

    Now that they are set, I would require u folks to do:
    1. Sign up for the mentoring rsk students. This is also for rsk@abroad

    Subscribe to MentorRSK
    RSKMentor Website other rskites who aren't members/who don't read this newsgroup regularly and ask them to do the same.
    3.get a parallel offline effort on the go with getting snailmail addresses of other rskites who are willing to help the students. the principal/teachers and inform them of this mentor network.
    Please any improvements/suggestions to the above ideas ASAP. Its time we become proactive alumnus.

    I think you all might know about the old students association in school. Last year it was due for OSCAR. But we could not conduct because already EUREKA took place and school couldn't afford to lose two more working days. We thought of conducting some other programs like counseling and medical camps but we could not get green signal from school. But principal promised that he would allow us to conduct OSCAR this year.

    We too got permission from the new principal for conducting OSCAR. OSCAR budget comes roughly around 45000. When we recently met a very old student, we heard that most of the old students are not interested in conducting OSCAR. We really want to know whether most of you feel the same. Now we are confused about what we should do. This is mainly because we don't know what is the general opinion of old students. We would like to seek your advice regarding this. Kindly post your opinion as early as possible. These are the following options, which we have. Please give your valuable suggestions about them.


  • budget – 45000.
  • Creates opportunity for school students to develop their literary and cultural skills.
  • The certificates given would be of very much value to them in the future.
  • The RSK's fame will increase
  • Feasible only when we get the required funds.
  • Practical difficulties are more. ie)collecting funds is a big problem from our regular big sponsors like pepsi for the BHEL management is not allowing to get sponsors from them after the great pepsi issue(regarding hygiene) also we are very much lagging in our fund collecting team's strength for it seems very very difficult for us to reach even half of our target. but i will tell u, we the current osa members are putting in our full efforts to make the funds grow (note :old students who think that they may help financially, pls let us know and also pls be sure if u are about to help us for we have to reach a target of 45000 bucks which is not an easy deal as u all might know)

    Medical camp

  • Not much money would be involved
  • It will be very useful for primary and junior school students
  • Some medical camps based on ortho, dentistry etc
  • The doctors called would be old students.


  • Not much money would be involved
  • Counseling will be given by old students who are well versed in certain fields
  • Video conferencing can also be arranged so that old students who are in abroad can also counsel

    If you have any other suggestions as to what other things can be done by OSA are also welcome. We want to know what you all want us to do in the name of old students association such that the school gets benefited.
    Take care

    Hello rskites
    The month of july has come and so is the sports day. Last Friday and Saturday Heats and Finals went on. The scores are as follows:
  • Bosco - 193
  • Gabriel – 183
  • Monfort – 173
    They are all in just 10 points difference. Hence everybody is very eager to know which house would finally win. This Friday (July 16, 2004) we have our sports day. So lets see who would win.
    Oscar preparations are going on a full swing. Thanks for all the old students who are helping us morally as well as financially. Hardly one month is left to go for Oscar 04.

    Now our school Boys can also proudly sing "THE GREEN AND WHITE FOREVER". Yes the uniform has been changed for boys. They have to wear Army green pants instead of Khaki. The design of tie has also been changed. There are thin double green strips coming all over white background.

    And regarding the culturals our school still keeps its flag fly high. Every year our school bags CAMPOFEZ rolling trophy. In other Inter School competitions also RSK is getting laurels.

    Last year in Athletics seven teams entered for State meet. Out of which four teams won medals. One gold, Two silver, One bronze. School football and basketball team entered state meet.

    Subject: Reg - Contributions for OSCAR

    It is not correct to generalize about the very old students. Obviously, there will be a generation gap between the very old students and the batches, which have passed out in the last 5-10 years. This must be accepted and strategies worked out to convince the older members to contribute to this cultural festival. Any product has to be marketed and the office bearers of the OSA must take the efforts in this regard. A budget can be prepared and circulated on this forum. A bank account is to be specified for the contributions to be channeled. Details of previous activities can be highlighted to inform the OSA members. Once the event is completed, an audited income/expenditure statement must be prepared and circulated. I am sure that all this only requires a little bit of time and effort from the organizers.

    If these activities can be planned in advance, many of us especially those who do not get a chance to come to Trichy, but would like to do something for their alma mater would willingly contribute. This will also pave way for undertaking larger projects and activities and making OSA more vibrant.

    Subject: Ideas for helping RSK school

    If you or others have specific ideas or proposals they want to float, please use RSK alumni yahoogroups forum. I have had a couple of ideas at the back of my mind but haven't had the bandwidth to follow through.

    1. Endowment of some sort for the faculty in our school to attract the best teachers to the school.
    2. Endowment of things that make the school different, say the annual intra-mural sports or cultural competitions.
    3. An online career-mentoring forum for graduating students (could be modeled around a similar idea that OSA used to run but in the offline world).
    Anyone, who wants to take the lead on any of these or other ideas, let me know and I will support it in any way possible.

    RSK Old Students Association intra school cultural event
    Hi everybody,
    I am roshan from 2001 batch. I am presently doing my ug in rect. I am also one of committee members of the old students association for the year 2002-2003. We are planning to conduct an intra school cultural event this year called "FIESTA". So it would be of great help if all the old students can participate and help us financially in making this event this a grand success as this would go a long way in re-building the image of the osa-rsk.

    RSK Old Students Association Reunion
    Hi All,
    It gives me immense pleasure in mailing you all about the Reunion that we held at the School...under our own faithful old Banyan tree. There was quite a sizeable crowd of Old Students, although, as has been wont, the Old Old Students were conspicuous by their absence. There were around 100 people (A large number by recent standards!), and the Old Old students were represented by Ravi (Class of 76), Manimozhi('89) and Arunkumar('90). Apart from them, there were 2 from the Class Of 94, 7 members from the Class of 96(mine), 2 from the Class of 97, around 10 from the Class Of 98, around 15 from the Class of 99, close to 20 from 2000, and nearly 40 from the class of 2001!
    And would you believe it......there was competition for the post of Secretary!!!! Well, until we managed to change the setup to fit in two secretaries!!!! Thus, the OSA shall now have a general Secretary, and a Cultural Secretary. The teaching community was represented by the Principal, by the Headmistresses from the 3 sectors, Mrs Prema Jayadevan, Mrs Kokila, Mrs Ammukutty, Mrs Felicia, Mrs Welma, Mrs Rani, Mr Sowrirajan, Mr Devarajan, Mr Rex, and Mr Surrendar. This was one of the largest congregation of teachers at a reunion.

    The morning started with the Prayer Song, and Principal welcoming us. Then followed the Felicitations for Mr Devarajan and Mr sowrirajan as they retire on superannuation. Both of them gave touching addresses. games were, unlike previous reunions when they were all grouped together, staggered, and made welcome change between reports.
    The reports were Annual Report by the Outgoing Secretary, Arun, the Financial report by Outgoing treasurer, Sudha, and the OSCAR Report by Organizing Secretary, Sridhar. The Reunion began with the grand RSKite Balloon burst. Then there was Family Building, Destinations, Dodge Ball, Freeze Dance, and lots of other games..... and they did take us back to the Good old PT period days. Everyone ran.....and my was major fun, especially at the Destinations game. Everyone forgot their ages....and ran and ran and fetch the prize! With snacks and a good lunch and lots of prizes.... the day went on really well. With the impromptu dances by OSA, and the ultimate Freeze Dance..... the day went on like a few seconds. And before we knew it, it was all over. We shall wait for an official mail from the OSA for details on the office bearers, and the tentative agenda for the year. While I wish all of them a good year ahead, and fun as we had this time around... I can only say one thing to those people who missed out today's fun. Maybe the next time more would be around.... and as usual, it shall be a huge HOPE...for..well, forget it....... So long....

    With regards,

    Well, i thought, i can update you with some info regarding OSA-Events at present. Well, we guys are conducting the Model Entrance Exam for +2 students on 7th & 8th of Apr. about 160 students are writing this Exam. We have got some nice sponsorship & the papers for the Exam were set by Eminent profs. of reputed colleges like Rec,Trichy. I guess the farewell for the teachers who are retiring this year were over today. one of our representatives went to the school and handed over the memento. It is pretty unfortunate that Mangala's husband passed away,the time when she herself is retiring from office.

    News about the RSK reunion
    I (Tapas Banerjee) happened to be one of the conveners of the RSK reunion. RSK reunion took place on Sunday February 11, 2001 at 10:00 AM under the old Banyan Tree. Everything went on quite well but a 36 year school could attract only 83 students and teachers together. Out of 83 students 95% were from '98,'99 and '00 batch. 8 teachers turned up. All of them primary school teachers.
    We had lots of fun but with the people present and a heavy, new faces and games. I am sure we did everthing from the invitation side. Hope the new office bearers do a good job.

    July 10 2000

    Good news first: After many years, RSK returned 100% results in both 10th and 12th standards.
    The incidents below are bizzare ! Bro.John Brechmans, the current principal was assaluted at his residence as a result of some squabble over admissions. He had to be hospitalized for a few days. He has recovered now and has resumed duty. The school was indefinitely closed immediately after the incident and was reopened after assurances from the government and the management of BHEL. As it happens, nothing was forthcoming from the powers that be and so all the teachers of trichy went on a token one day fast on friday last.

    NEWS UPDATE: 13 June 2000

    This year Dr Kathirasapandian (DKPN) sir has got his docterate in chemistry and already Rajagopal sir has also got docterate in physics.
    The school has 4 sections in state board and 3 sections in central board. Ours is the only school to send students to both state as well as the central board.

    August 28 1997 : Hazaar new waves this time!
    Two guys have got thru' JEE with decent ranks-both joining iitm. The school has plans to change over to state board ,what with the school topper getting only a B-group course in BITS-pilani even with a 472 on 500.
    The overall performance of the school this year is better than that of last year-fewer compartmentals,failures.
    Anyway the school's strength has shrunk-only 3 sections in 12'th class and hazaar vague things like Raju Sir handling chemistry.
    More about it in the next mail. Bye for now.

    Science Exhibition Experiences
    August 30, 2003

    Hello RSKites,
    Our school conducted a grand science exhibition for three days.21.08.03 to 23.08.03. The monfortian mission is celebrating its 100th year in India. So Rev.Brother principle has arranged for the exhibition. All the school students are excited. They have exhibited their projects on various fields such as Arts, English, Tamil, French, Sanskrit, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography etc. Other schools in and around trichy are also invited to display their projects.The projects are displayed in both main school and junior school. The school looks great as it is decorated fully. Large paintings, no of pluccards with good sayings,lot of stalls are put on.The school looks really different with full of festive mood.

    The science exhibition was superb. I will detail my experiences. The exhibition was called EUREKA 2K3. As I said earlier the exhibition was planned for three days but it was extended to one more day due too overwhelming response.

    The inauguration was on Thursday morning. The chief guest was Dr M.Arumugam, director of National Institute of Technology (REC renamed). The Post master general was also there to release stamps of monfortian mission. Apart from these Ms.Sunaina Mandeen(MD,Nexus computers), a old student was the guest of honour. The principal briefed the main reasons of conducting the exhibition. One for the 100th year of monfortian mission and another is that RSK is entering its 40th year.

    Inter school projects
    The projects were divided into two. Inter school projects and Intra school projects. For the Inter school competition more than 16 schools participated. They had participated in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology . There was two categories – 9th and 10th &11th and 12th. The prizes were also given for the best projects on the closing day. All the projects were innovative. The interschool projects were displayed in the monfortian hall,the newly built hall. Don't wonder where it might have been constructed. It is just a reconstruction made on the supw, ncc, commerce classes next to the old biology lab.

    Intra school projects
    The intra school projects were displayed from 1st std to 12th std. They had three divisions primary school, junior school, main school. They had displayed on all the subjects they have in syllabus including SUPW, arts, languages. It was so nice to see the tiny tots explaining their project.

    The highlight of the exhibition was the Air show, as they called it. About 13 students of 12th std had made an aircraft under the guidance of an aeronautical engineer. It is about 4 feet in length. It was made to fly by remote control. It had an 2.9 cc engine and a capacity of 280ml. It can fly upto a height of 3000ft. It also had a small camera used to view the birds or the land below. It was a superb show for 20 minutes. It was really appreciable to take such an effort. The next thing was openheart surgery. It was shown by a projector in a classroom. Then they had skeleton dance, puppet show etc to entertain the people coming. They also had food stall put by hotel Sangam and some more stalls were put by sponsors.

    The response
    The crowd was too large than they expected. On the first day only people around trichy turned up. The next day 34 schools came to see it. About 35000 people came on Friday. On Saturday schools from nagapatinam, tanjore, chengalpattu, lalgudi, karur etc came. People were overflowing. So the school decided to extend for one more day on Sunday.

    Though it was extended to Sunday the closing ceremony was on Saturday evening. The trichy collector and executive director of BHEL were the chief guests. The collector greatly appreciated the efforts. Our principal briefed all the events and said about what made him think about a science exhibition. When Dr A.P.J. ABDUL KALAM was the president elect (ie) just one week before he became president, he had come to trichy. He was staying in bhel guest house. Our principal met him and asked him to give a lecture to our students. He agreed and gave a 45 minutes speech to our 10th, 11th , 12th. So from that time he wanted to give students an opportunity, which would make them future scientists.

    At that time one of our old student Mr B.V.RAMANAN (MD,liviya polymers) also came forward with this idea. He was the main cause for the eureka2k3. He was helping principal an all ways, planning out and everything. Many of our old students around trichy and other districts were generous enough to sponsor for the eureka2k3. Like, students of 1983 sponsored the prizes. It would not have been so successful without their help.

    To sum it all it was a very grand exhibition, which has created history. It has made Rsk to regain its glory. It was the talk of the town for the past one week. All the leading newspapers had published about this with colour photos. All the teachers were working enthusiastically. The whole school was decorated so beautifully. The school was in a festive mood. And it has made me sigh why at all there was no such event in my period.

    Take care
    Yamini (2002 batch)
