MY MEMORIES ABOUT VISWANATH
The demise of Digumarti Viswanath at Kothagudem on the 6 th July came as an upsetting news to all of us in different well related other family members like Undurtis,Varahagiris, Mallimadugulas,Damerlas,Pusuluris and many others.My relationship with him was not only a very near family relationship, but a very close contact right from our child hood days.If I remember right, we were always in close touch right from 1935 when I was 5 years old. He was born in 1927-28 and I was born in 1930. We used to meet along with our other brothers at either Srikakulam or our common birth place Berhampur or in any other places where my father was in service as an Overseer in R & B.These places were all nearby Srikakulam.When my father was transferred to Srikakulam,we lived almost together for nearly 5 years.That was the grandest time for us in all respects.I and my elder brother,Das and three of them Siva rao,Simham & Viswanath used to move together and in Srikakulam town we were titled as" Panchapandavulu."
Myself and Viswanath were together for 2 years in vizianagaram where we had our College education.It was a grand time. We came together in our views with regard to our future lives,our obligations with regard to our families,Society in general and our general contribution to Political upliftment in Independent India. Right from the beginning he became closer to Marxist principles and he stuck to them very closely till the last. He pioneered a few Trade Unions akin to Marxist principles in Srikakulam and played a prominent role in that line.He ran a well organised School in his Home Town Srikakulam and ran it for several years.His wife,Kamala garu was herself a communist, helped him in all respects and they both were an exemplary couple.Viswanath was very studious in his school and college studies in Srikakulam,Berhampur and Vizianagaram also.Because of his merit he was selected for admission in B.Tech,Electronics in M.I.T.Madras.Unfortunately because of his ill health he could not continue his studies in Madras and came away to Srikakulam to Choose his own future career.
To put in short,Viswanath was a learned teacher,voracious reader,Trade unionist,Socialist and an activist.Apart from all his basic good characters,he was a very good friend to all in our families and a loveable person.
I can never forget my close association with him during his life time.May his soul rest in peace.

Below is the write up about the experience of Vaibhav Adukoori when he attended an adventure camp in Shillong. Vaibhav Adukoori is the grand son of Dr.U.Srinivas and Sujata (son of their elder daughter Dr.A.Vijaya)
My adventure camp at 58GTC, Shillong
During this summer, I attended a summer adventure camp organized by 58 Gorkha Training Center in Shillong. It was known as, ‘Eastern Command Young Lions adventure camp.’ The duration of the camp was for one week and here I learnt innumerable lessons which are bound to stay with me for life. This camp has taught me the value of my home and mother, whom I used to take for granted.
This camp has been an enriching experience for me, and I’m fortunate to be one of the few children to get this opportunity.
Our morning routine started at five O’ clock in the morning by fetching our own hot water in buckets where the weather was freezing cold in Shillong. At 6O’clock we had to do P.T which involved exercises and games. We had to assemble in the common dining hall for breakfast which was the same that was served to the recruits, usually consisted of puri and sabzi. Breakfast was followed by the activity for the day.
On the first day we were addressed by the Commandant of the center and then were briefed about our schedule for the camp. The first activity was archery at Gaje Ghale ground, next to our rooms. We were taught the basics by the instructors and then we had a competition. Every activity was followed by a competition of that event. We also did LMG firing, precision shooting, map reading, navigation and also learnt bivouac tent pitching which can prove to be life saving in some situations. After the activity for the day we had our lunch which was, to say the least, horrendous. But it taught us the value of mum’s cooking. Then there was an hour of rest and then games for 1 hour in the afternoon. We played sports like volleyball, basketball, handball, did gymming played badminton and also witnessed an inter company handball match. Our evening programme was diverse but it usually had something to do with regimental history or army customs .We also had academic activities like debate, essay and a quiz competition in which I stood first. We also witnessed the magnificent military band of 58 GTC; this was followed by dinner and then sleep. However we partied on till 2 in the night and then we would conk off.
The place being a training center produced many Olympians, asiads and commonwealth games winners. We were also made to witness their expertise at taekwondo, karate and boxing. They also showed us rock craft and how to do a battle obstacle course which includes one of the toughest obstacles any person has attempted. We also saw the “kasam parade” or passing out ceremony where the recruits take their oath. It was a true testimony to the discipline that the soldiers inculcate during 40 weeks of grueling training. Part of the camp itenary involved a city tour of Shillong during which we visited Shillong peak and saw the picturesque Ward’s lake. The end of the camp was marked by a cultural programme that was compeered by me and my friend. There were various performances put up by all the participants of the camp which included songs, dances, stories and even shayaries. The program was graced by the commandant who, after the show gave away our prizes and certificates.
During the entire duration of the camp I made many new friends and interacted with people from all corners of the country. This taught us the value of sharing and adjusting to different environments and people. These values have had an enriching impact on my perspective towards small but important things in life. I have cherished every moment of this camp and will carry many happy, lasting memories.

We have gone thro' the write up of Chy.Vaibhav.It is indeed very interesting and educative even to elders like us.His last sentence in the Write up is particularly very apt to all children in his age group.His analysis is fantastic and useful to all.
May God bless Vaibhav with a bright future and a motto of service to Humanity.
