Speaking on ‘What milestone will I create in my journey of life’, Kalam said: “To be successful four important principles are – have an aim in life, acquire knowledge, work hard, have perseverance and learn to manage time.”

RWA Meet at HSR Layout

HSR Layout Residents Association, 2nd Sector met for the Annual General Body Meeting for nearly three hours on June 6th at New Extension Cambridge Public School. The first part was a review of the activities of the association during the preceding year. The second part was the interaction of residents with the civic officials from BBMP, BDA, BWSSB, BMTC, and Police department. We had requested these organisations to depute senior officials and engineers to interact with residents and give suitable responses to the queries.

Unfortunately barring a few, civic agencies were represented by junior staff who showed helplessness in answering our queries. KPTCL and BESCOM representatives were absent; we were most disappointed. The local corporator Latha Narasimhamurthy was present through out the meeting.

Officebearers of the Association: The new President is R S Hiremath. and Vice -President Purushotham.  Channakeshava A is the Secretary. Brig Murthy will support the association as an advisor.
