– 7 Jun 2005) is to be held  on Sept.30, 6 p.m. onwards at Sanskrit College premises, Mylapore.

Refreshments will be served to guests, starting at 5pm.

A note from his son, Dr. V. Balaji, a reputed climatologist, has this to say on the man –

With a light heart and a keen intellect, an appetite for enjoyment and a zest for life, ‘Thambu’ as he was known, was adored by his family and wide circle of friends. The innate feel for numbers was applied to pure mathematics in his youth, to the movement of passengers and freight during an illustrious career in the Indian Railways, and to chess and bridge all his life.

His father was K. Balasubramania Iyer and his grandfather V. Krishnaswami Iyer whose stamp can be seen on many Mylapore institutions.

This is the order of the Sept. 30 event –
