I am the fourth child of my parents Shri.K.R.M.Ganapthy and Smt.Kasiammal and have done my primary education in the Board school at Pandalkudi  (Then Ramnad Dist) and moved to Virudhunagar for school & college education. I have studied in  S.S.Subbiah Nadar Municipal High School and done my PUC in VHNSN College at Virudhunagar.

I have entered the College of Engineering, the Glorious institution  in 1959 and  left on Jan 1964 with a degree in Civil Engineering. I have joined the State PWD on 3rd Feb1964 as Supervisor in the Special Building circle office at Trichy pending  declaration of final year results and subsequently I was re-designated as Junior Engineer with retrospect effect. I was scrutinizing the estimate and design of various types of buildings and ancillary works. I was fortunate to have a very good Boss who had guided me the right course of life.

I was transferred to Dairy & Milk Project division, Madurai  and posted to one section in charge of Agricultural College buildings. I was working there for about four and half years. I had wonderful colleagues and the four and half years stint at the college campus gave me a lot of confidence in handling any type of challenges in the construction field and laid a strong foundation for my future carrier.

I was transferred to ‘T’ (Technical) section of Chief Engineer’s office at Chepauk,Chennai during Feb 1969 and resigned from there  to join
State bank of India,  the premier financial Institution on 18th Jan 1971 at Chennai.

I  held various positions at Chennai and Mumbai and  was associated with the construction of Bank’s own buildings, identifying suitable  leased buildings for branches  , acquiring sites for putting up Bank’s own buildings, providing necessary infrastructure for Bank  computerization. Although I was in the Bank’s specialist cadre  I had the privilege of working with Top Executives of the Bank and had my  full job satisfaction. I have retired from the Bank’s service on 31st May 2002 as
Dy.Gen.Manager & Chief Engineer from the Corporate Centre, Mumbai.

Smt. Kanchanadevi has joined me as life partner on 7th July 1965 and we are blessed with three sons. Our sons and daughter-in-laws are software professionals and working for MNCs in USA and by the Grace of God they are well settled.  I and my wife have settled down at Madurai which is close to my native place. Our children are frequently visiting us and infusing strength and we also visit  USA once in eighteen months to spend time  with our children and grand children.

We would be happy to receive our friends at Madurai where they can receive the blessings of Arulmighu Meenakchiamman and Arulmighu Sundareshwarar. Our friends may contact us in the following address.
