Story of S .Lurd Francis
I am S .Lurd Francis residing at 2/201 railway line, Mugaiyur – 600755. I am writing my work experience at RCT.
I joined Annai English knowledge centre as a teacher from the day it was started at 1989. I continued my job as a teacher for continuously 6 years. Mrs M.Marya Jesintha, Mrs Yesumary, Mrs Sagayamary, Mudiyappan and Mrs Theresammal were my co-workers at that time. In this Mrs Sagayamary was the teacher for the technical institute present.
Nearly 25 to 30 children’s were studying at that time and when I got relived from my job and joined government school nearly 100 boys and girls were studying.
The children’s who studied at that time are now in a good position in the society. Some of them are M.Jose Premkumar who got his Doctor degree from Russia and Thiru Bakyaraj M.Sc., B.Ed., Selvi T.Mary Syndiya M.A., B.Ed.,Dt.Ed., Selvi Sagayamari M.A., B.Ed., Selvi Ranilda B.Sc.,B.Ed., are the people who are now working as undergraduate and postgraduate teachers. Thiru. Jagadesh became an actor in the Tamil film industry. When I think about these people I am proud of myself worked in RCT.
Story of S.A. Raj
I am S.A. Raj. I worked in the library of RCT under the Human Resource Centre Scheme.
This library functions six day a week from morning 10.00 am to evening 5.00 pm. I was involved in registering the reader’s details who came to the library, getting their signature in the register, maintaining the library, sorting the books, entering the details of the books which has been taken outside for reading by the member’s and many more.
The library consists of books favourite for all ages from children to elderly people. It also consists of newsletter of various NGO’s in Tamil, English and Hindi, novels, short stories, poet’s, Multilanguage books on politics, religion, drama, autobiography and history were also present. Books, newsletters and materials which Mr M.G. collects from the various training sessions which he has attended were also present in the library.
Unification of younger generation is made possible by utilising their strength for the empowerment of the society was well known by the Director Mr M.G. at that time.
Based on the library made by RCT, now the village Mugaiyur has a village library established by the government.
Story of R. Jesudas
I am R. Jesudas, Aayathur. At present I am working as a drawing teacher at Sacred higher secondary school, Tindivanam. When I completed my education and was in search of job I joined RCT. Workers from all over the villages of Tindivanam, Villupuram used to come to our office. Our organisation office used to be always crowded with these workers. Without seeing day or night I in my charge used to conduct programmes in savings, women’s sangam, night schools, farming, environmental management, herbal medicine and various dramas’.
In the early days when the movement for Dalit Christians was formed, I wrote a poem for the dance and drama programme on the social awareness. After long years now when I went for a school annual day function, the student’s in that school performed for this song. Really I was very happy at that time. When I went and asked the dance teacher how they know this song they said it was taught at “Mugaiyur RCT”. I said to them that I was the person who wrote that poem. All the staff and people over their felt happy and all of them praised me for my job. But all of the praise which I got is because of RCT which gave me freedom and taught me to thing deeply about the society during my working day at RCT. I am really thankful to them.
