Thanksgiving


ADIEU FRIENDS:

The time has come to bid adieu….. This is a moment of thanksgiving for me. I consider myself gifted to be having been a part of this   esteemed and wonderful family – India Post.     Primarily my humble and thankful obeisance to the God Almighty for allowing me to spend fruitfully, more than half  of my lifetime so far, in this great  organization  with my  brethren. It was a pleasure working with all of you for over three decades.  I shall always cherish with nostalgia these memorable days.

A lot has happened during this time. The Stenographers of the Department of Post, a scattered and neglected lot, were yearning for better recognition, parity with other services and better career prospects.  I am glad, that with the untiring efforts of many of us, spread throughout the country, we were able to bring the stenographers of the Postal Department under one umbrella.  We could achieve a lot in improving our career prospects and addressing our rightful needs. Keeping in pace with the changing world, we also moved onto newer ways of communication - website and blogging, which gave us efficient and faster ways for communicating and sharing our ideas and feelings. All these helped us to boost our self esteem and productivity and play a key role in shaping the changing contours of our Department’s future.

I am happy that I could play a key role, albeit small, during these years, in furthering the cause of our Association. I am sure that I couldn’t have achieved all this, without the unstinted efforts,   support and guidance from each one of you. To be truthful, I would have gained more from others than what I have probably given to others. I sincerely thank each & every one of you who have directly and indirectly helped me to perform my tasks, all these years.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. I would say that we have taken only a few steps in our journey together.  A lot more need to be done. There are unattended issues.  Our tradition of ‘keeping service before self’, irrespective of all differences, be it, position or status in the Association, will definitely help us to focus on new issues and handle them effectively.  Truthful, selfless and dedicated service alone can win laurels and acclaim. Together we can make the Association stronger; with united efforts alone, can we put our Association on the path of greater achievements. Now the responsibility rests on you to continue this tradition of service.

I shall be glad to offer my services to our beloved Association at any time and in any measure in the future also.
 
I shall always keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers, and cherish good and loving memories of our long association. These memories will remain a source of joy and pride to me always.

My sincere prayers - to the powers that be - to shower on you & your families the very best in all your endeavors, in the years to come. Let our union and organization scale greater heights to touch new peaks of excellence.

Thank you
E. Sukumaran.
