Abdulkader Kulam, belonging to the first batch of TVMC
A message from an alumnus of the First Batch of our College
They called me "KULAM" then, year was 1965. Mr.Bakthavachalam of Congress Party was our Chief Minister, soon taken over by Mr.C.N. Annadurai of DMK.

I am Abdulkader Kulam, I belong to the first bactch of TVMC medical students, started our Ist MBBS in St.Xaviers College, Palayamkottai. It was Madras State then, we graduated under the University of Madras.

I am close to 60 years now, practicing in USA as an Anesthesiologist since I moved here to Chicago in 1976, just 4 years after my house surgency and stayed here ever since.

I passed my ECFMG in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in in 1975

In my treasure is a group photo of our very First MBBS 1965-1966 of Tirunelveli Medical College. I would love to publish it in your web pages of TVMC Alumni. Right now the picture is in pristine condition but I am afraid eventually nature will deteriorate it if I don't do something. I will try my best to upload the picture from here once if I can digitalize it.

If it fails I would like one of our Nellai Medico friends to come forward to takeover the charge. I will send it to you as long as you promise me to return it to me.


That was really a surprise for me
A doctors' day gift from the first batch......

    TVMC logo, infact was contributed by our first batch of students. The grain over the medical symbol represents the rice in Thiru-NEL-veli.

    We were also in part resposible for choosing the motto - "Duty, Dignity, Discipline" under the symbol. It was nothing but the copy of the mission statement of then popular party DMK. (kadami, kanniyam, kattupadu).

    Had we had the fortitude and wisdom of current time, we would have choosen something diffrent reflecting our service to humanity and helping the sick and love of our learning. Going after a then popular political motto was not the best choice,as seems now, of course we were young, naieve and vulnarable then.
