Vinobha Bhoopathy, an enterprising advocate launched Vinobha IAS Academy at Velacherry, Chennai on 29th August 2016 to prepare IAS aspirants to face the examination and interview.  Dr Anbumani Ramadass MP inaugurated the IAS Academy and spoke about the role of bureaucracy in the democracy.   As a former Union Cabinet Minister, he quote several examples of how bureaucracy has saved the system by providing proper guidance to the Government.  He also quoted the example of Smt Amudha IAS, who did an excellent work at Dharmapuri District.  He suggested all IAS aspirants to prepare well for the competitive examination and be successful.  He suggested them to keep the interest of the nation uppermost. 

Prime Point Srinivasan spoke on Leadership Communication.  He was quoting the examples of how a leader emerges in a situation.  He suggested that a leader should be a visionary and also a good communicator.  He explained as to  how  body language, eye contact, listening and verbal communication skills make a good leader. He quoted the example of a young political leader, when introduced to him was casually shaking hands exhibiting an arrogance.  Such gesture and body language may not give a good impression to others, he added.

Prime Point Foundation honoured with Narada Award for Digital Journalism

Vishwa Samvat Kendra is honouring journalists across the nation for positive journalism for more than two decades with 'Narada Awards'. For the first time they selected five journalists of Chennai from (1) magazine (2) Newspaper (3) Radio (4) Television and (5) Digital categories.

K. Srinivasan, Founder, Prime Point Foundation was honoured with Naradha Award under Digital journalism category for positive journalism. Smt Lokeswari (Editor of குமுதம் சிநேகிதி), Shri Sudarsan (All India Radio) and Shri Nijanthan (TV producer) were also honoured on 7th August 2016. Prime Point Foundation maintains various online discussion groups since 1999 on different subjects like India Vision, Communication, Journalism, etc. Also the Foundation publishes a 'digital only' eMagazine PreSense since March 2006 spreading positive journalism.  

Though Srinivasan received the Award personally, he dedicated this recognition to his Mentor Dr Abdul kalam who inspired and encouraged him towards positive journalism. Also the  dedicated ezine PreSense team and Sansad Ratna team have made this possible. The ezine's tagline itself is 'spreading positive vibrations'.

In the acceptance speech, Srinivasan made out the following points.

Naradha (நாரதர்), the sage in the ancient epics was a great communicator. He was a carrier of communication between the people. Unfortunately, he is being portrayed wrongly as a person creating conflict. Hence this award is named after Sage Naradha.
Srinivasan said that he used to quote in his lecture sessions on communication and journalism as to how Lord Krishna and Hanuman were the greatest communicators. As a communication professional himself, he used to wonder about the communication strategies adopted by Lord Krishna on several occassions. In Ramayana Lord Ram after meeting Hanuman for the first time, introduces Hanuman to Lakshmana as a great communicator. Through two slokas, Lord Ram describes the essentials of good communication quoting Hanuman. This is relevant even today.

From next year, Vishwa Samvat Kendra will be honouring the journalists for positive journalism under different categories in other centres of Tamil Nadu also.

Please listen to my acceptance speech in Tamil (9 minutes)
