GLOBAL PRESIDENTS MESSAGE: 2016 – 18

Johny Kurivila

World Malayalee Council, the most authentic representative body of Malayalees on this planet, has held it’s 10th Biennial Global Conference on August 26-28 in Bangalore. This event was a milestone after the organisation’s historic unification on December 1, 2015 at Mascot Hotel Trivandrum.

The landmark unity day was celebrated by members of the erstwhile streams in the presence of the then Kerala Chief Minister Shri Oommen Chandy and an impressive line of ministers including Ramesh Chennithala and KC Joseph, and mentors of WMC comprising former Governor MM Jacob, CPM leader MA Baby, Dr Babu Paul IAS, Ambassador TP Sreenivasan, Dr J Alexander IAS and Christy Fernadez IAS.

Looking back, we can feel justifiably proud for so many such achievements, which I am not attempting to chronicle here. In sum, past few years have been eventful as were able to galvanise our provinces to take up various humanitarian missions and initiatives. And now, it is exciting times for us as it is for the whole India.

At long last, there is hope and optimism for a nation of 1.3 billion people aspiring for a change for a better, stronger and more vibrant India.

With doubly redoubled vigour, the reunited WMC is now emerging not only as a global networking platform for the Diaspora but also as think-tank of the Malayalee community. Founded in 1995 by visionary Malayalee Diaspora leaders under the stewardship of eminent personalities including T. N. Sheshan, K.P.P. Nambiar, Babu Paul, WMC has emerged as a force to reckon with in its role as a think-tank, providing thought leadership for our community. We also play a critical role in engaging the Diaspora and the government authorities in tackling issues of concern. Some of the shining moments in WMC activities over the past two years include the opening of Pravasi Service Centre and our global headquarter in Trivandrum.
