ANEW, encouraged by the success of the auto-driving course, initiated a course in car driving for its students.ANEW’S car driving course was started in association with the Inner Wheel Club of Madras (East). A Second hand Maruthi car, donated by ANEW’s well-wishers, Mrs & Mr Kamalesh Seth, was used for the purpose. Candidates for the course were selected and sent to Gopal Driving School for initial training as well as for procuring the license. The candidates were then given practical training for a month in the Maruthi 800 and were taught defensive driving and road etiquette by Automobile Association of India (AASI) at ANEW. On being certified by AASI, the students were sent to Savera Hotel for internship. ANEW found employment for the students at the airport to shuttle the crew between the terminal and the flight, and also, at Hotel Savera for valet parking.
Mr.Subbaiyan, our administrative manager, was awarded the best social worker at the grass root level by CIOSA. Mrs. Krishnammal, an alternative Nobel laureate, felicitated Mr.Subbaiyan.
