President, Coimbatore Malayali Samajam
“When I retired from my job, I became fully engaged with samajam works 24x7. I was the general secretary of Coimbatore Malayali Samajam for almost 15 years and it’s been 6 years now as its President. Earlier, I was working as sales Tax officer in Coimbatore.” K.Rajagopalan, President, Coimbatore Malayali Samajam shares his experience during an interview with the covai Mail The Coimbatore Malayali Samajam was established in 1955 and it represents the vast majority of the Malayali Population numbering about 4 lakhs in the city of Coimbatore. There was a time when Malayali students faced difficulty to enter into the academic institutions in the city. “We wanted to provide quality education, not only for the Malayali students but to all. Thus CMS College of Science and Commerce was started with just 30 students years ago”, he added.

What makes your educational institutions different from others?

Ask anyone in the city, they are very well aware about the very well aware about the heritage of our education. We cater to all people, including overseas students. There are students from more than 16 countries in our colleges. They love to spend time and study in our campus. We have created a pleasant ambience not only for our students but also for students all over the world! We have the best laboratories in the city providing latest educational experience for our students. We have a separate English lab to improve the language skills of students.

Have you concentrated more on infrastructure in your institutions?

Not specifically. But yes, when you ask our students, they say they love to spend time inside. It is because we have concentrated more on creating a pleasant atmosphere inside our campus with more greenery. An educational institution excels only when they have quality faculties and students. We have them both. We are keen on making our students work for the betterment of our nation. Almost all our teaching faculties are Ph.D holders. They follow a great teaching method. Students don’t hesitate to interact with them in our institutions which, I feel, is the best compared to other institutions.
