I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks for inviting me to be a part of Nanna’s centurion celebration and the exciting website rollout. It was an absolute pleasure to join in on such a special occasion and witness the joy and enthusiasm surrounding both the celebration and the launch of the website.

Nanna’s legacy is a testament to a life well-lived, and Akka all your ideas and hard work to honor and share his journey is remarkable. 

The website rollout adds a modern and exciting dimension to the celebration, showcasing family’s commitment to preserving and sharing cherished memories.

I truly appreciate the invitation, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this memorable day also Akka your Birthday. 

Happy Birthday - “a daughters gift to dad” 

For me, It’s an experience I will always treasure  and can’t wait to hear more about him from you all and Chinni.

Very nice and cute presentation Shobha . U gathered so much information and kept his things so nicely, collected all ur members messages , not an easy thing . But I feel ur father from heaven must be very happy and he bless u and ur family by remembering the way u did it . I am not at all like u people , i can't express more than this .


What a tribute! Beautifully done. Kudos to his children especially daughter Shoba for having such love and respect for her dad that she accomplished this daunting task. I personally met uncle Ratmam just once or twice when he visited his Venu. Although impressed with his demeanor and personality his laughter stays with you. In my opinion, his best gifts to society are his children. Dr. And Mrs Ratnam raised well educated and caring children who are caring on his legacy. I am grateful to have Venu in my life since 1966. Venu’s personal actions and behaviors remind me a lot of his father. God bless the family.

Dear Dad, I see you, lost in thought, Behind a newspaper, magazine, or book. Your curiosity knows no bounds, Your thirst for knowledge, never quenched. You encouraged us to learn and grow, To reach for the stars, to never give up. Despite your humble beginnings, You accomplished so much. You were a natural leader, With command of any room you entered. Honest and generous, always willing to help, Especially those in need. You broke the mold, the first in your family To go to college, to climb the career ladder. You landed at the United Nations, Helping countries market their technologies. I am so proud of you, Dad. You were my role model, my inspiration. You and Mom, a match made in heaven, Supportive of each other through thick and thin. I wonder how you'd handle the internet, With all the world's knowledge at your fingertips. I miss you, Dad, and your booming laughter. But your legacy lives on, in your children and grandchildren. We carry your values, your thirst for knowledge, And your passion for making a difference in the world. Thank you, Dad, for everything.

Hi, Sobha vadina! Glanced through the website. It has come out quite well. My compliments to the entire team! The photos section ..... brings back so many nostalgic memories ...... gives goosebumps!! 

Unlike some of our AC Tech classmates, I never did get to personally meet your Dad. My impression of him was that like our Dr Laddha, your Dad was among the leaders in a growing India  in research  & industry. This website created by your sister and family members does him justice and preserves his memory with those whom it matters most. Based on his achievements the memory of your Father will linger long.
Please congratulate your sister and family members

Venu, It’s a wonderful tribute to a great man. It explains a lot about you and I can hear his boisterous laugh in yours! Loved Nutty’s and Siva’s tributes. PU

Dear Venu, I read with interest, the life story of your beloved father. He is indeed a visionary and great human being and inspired many to achieve and come up in life.

That is an excellent work by Shoba. Congratulations to her!
A fitting and glowing tribute to a great personality!
