Dear Comrades,

NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE CALLS UPON TO ORGANISE
‘COMRADE SK VYAS MEMORIAL LECTURE’
 ON 12 FEBRUARY – EVERY YEAR

            It is going to be one year on 12th February – we are yet to get adjusted to the reality that Com SK Vyas is not amidst us.

            The role of Com Vyas in the audit movement, in the movement of central government employees shall ever be remembered. No history of either audit movement and for that matter of central government employees’ movement can be written without SK Vyas. His role, involvement, contributions and above all the sacrifices are beyond words, unparalleled.

            There will not be a replacement for Com SK Vyas – and there cannot be also. He is a glittering star that will guide us in the days to come.

            The National Executive Committee felt that the remembrance of Vyasji cannot and should not be quite ritualistic. Vyasji was a voracious reader, he read anything that came on his way. From trash to classics he read. Vyasji used to advise not to ignore anything as trash or something that is too hard to understand. You have something to learn from everything and anything will be understood when you want to, that is what Vyasji used to tell us.

            Naturally, the best tribute to Vyasji would be by gaining some knowledge, some more information on a subject, using it for growth of the movement and advancement of the society.

            The National Executive Committee therefore calls upon all the Units to organise, here onwards, COMRADE SK VYAS MEMORIAL LECTURE on 12th February in every station, every year – on a given subject. The speaker should be somebody who can present the subject in its entirety. A leading, learned figure in the station may be chosen as a speaker.


The subject for this year is:

Demand for Minimum wage and Living Wage – in the context of economic liberalisation.

The National Executive Committee further decided to bring out a souvenir in memory of Com SK Vyas – every unit is requested to contribute their mite towards souvenir. The idea is to release the souvenir in a function on 15th April – Association Day at New Delhi. The details shall be communicated later, separately to each unit.

All the Units are requested to organise “Com SK Vyas Memorial Lecture” with maximum participation and a detailed report may be sent to HQr.

It shall be highly appreciated if every unit e-mail the transcript of the lecture to HQr which can be printed in the souvenir which shall be useful to all.

            With greetings,

                                                                                                                                      Yours fraternally                                                                                                                                                                    Sd/-
