karaiGLUG Inauguration

With a total of 25 students from various field(CSE,IT,ECE,Mechanical Engg , Nano Science & others),the inauguration of karaiGLUG took place a little later at 11:30 a.m of 19th July ’15 instead of the scheduled 10 a.m, unfortunately(due to delay by the participants).
The inauguration wouldn’t have taken place without the support of few good hearts. To name a few , Mr.Selvaraj (HAWDMA NGO secretary) who provided us the hall capable of accommodating a 100 and other equipment needed. I am personally very much thankful to him.
The volunteer’s support is the most important to be mentioned here. Mr.Alagunambi Welkin, Vishal,Devakumar,travelled all the way from Chennai to support us and Mr.Vigneshwaran from Pondicherry.
The inauguration function began with lighting the lamp by Mr.Selvaraj,Welkin,Lenin,Vignesh and Vaishnavi. Mr.Selvaraj addressed the participants and welcomed the volunteers from FSFTN.
The most notable words by Selvaraj
” இங்கு முளைவிட்டிருப்பது முட்செடிகள் அல்ல மூலிகைச் செடிகள்”

With a detailed introduction on “Free software philosophy and its benefits” Mr.Welkin guided our friends to another dimension of knowledge.

In between , cool drinks and template sheets were distributed.
We are very much grateful to all the volunteers for sharing their experiences with us.
And we are thankful to those volunteers who wished to me here.
Special thanks to Mr.Lenin Gurusamy ,for being the backbone of the karaiGLUG.
Thanks to Mr.Ramesh Kannan for capturing us on his Fujiflim sx50exr SLR camera(for making us look good in the pics 😉 ).
