As is the custom, PSG & Sons' Charities observed its 86{+t}{+h}Founders' Day by honouring a few of its alumni with the ‘Distinguished Alumni' award here on Wednesday.

As many as six distinguished alumni, drawn from various institutions of PSG, were recognised for their contribution to society.

Giving away the awards, Manikam Ramaswami, Chairman and Managing Director of Loyal Textile Mills Limited, Chennai, said showing gratitude took one to the next level of becoming a contributor.

“If we as a society had expressed our gratitude by contributing, then 60 years after Independence we will not have 45 per cent of malnourished children in India. Our current efforts to alleviate the sufferings of the vulnerable part of society by giving them several freebies have not been able to change the reality on ground. Effective solution can be found only when we work with a sharp focus on inclusive growth,” he said.

India was better placed than most East-Asian countries at the time of Independence, but now those countries had reached the developed stage and every year one or two countries overtook India in social development indexes. B. Ramamoorthy, Professor at Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, G.V. Devadas, Chief Operating Officer, Lakshmi Technology and Engineering Industries Limited, Coimbatore, P. Sakthivelu, Deputy Inspector General of Police, Vellore Range, G. Kannappan, Chairman and Managing Director, KG Group of Institutions, Coimbatore, S. Muthu Kumar, Officer on Special Duty, Prime Minister's Office, New Delhi, and Vinu Aram, Director, Shanthi Ashram, Coimbatore, were those who were selected to receive the awards this year.

L. Gopalakrishnan, Managing Trustee of PSG & Sons' Charities, presided over the function.
