In a bid to facilitate patient convenience, a new utility-cum-drug counter has been opened at the JKCN complex. Inaugurated by Nalli Kuppaswami Chettiar on Monday, June 22, 2009, the counter will offer pre operative and post operative medicines as well as utility items like bottled water and biscuits.
A small function was held to mark the occasion. Ms. Padmashri sang the prayer song following which Mr. Nalli Chettiar lit the traditional lamp.
The utility counter is a first for JKCN, which until now only had a drug counter.
Later on a small function was held to honour Mr. Nalli Chettiar.
Dr. Rajeev Raman welcomed the guest, while Vice-Chariman Dr. T.S. Surendran threw light on Mr. Nalli Chettiar’s achievements and the reputation that the Nalli stores have earned over the decades.
Mr. Nalli Chettiar, while applauding the work done by Sankara Nethralaya, remembered Parmacharya on the occasion and attributed his success to the blessings of Parmacharya. He also recalled fondly his association with Sivan sir as well as recounted a few personal experiences.
Dr. Nivedita Narayanan gave the vote of thanks.
