Name & Address



Dr A Singarayar

Dear Sir,
I am shocked to read the mail and yet to recover from it. I feel upset and pain as well when I learn that you have submitted your resignation letter. You are an integral part of Sankara Nethralaya.I can not think of Sankara Nethralaya without Mr Mahalingam,A.
Your positive and significant contributions to SN in general and TSNA in particular are highly commendable. Your ceaseless efforts for affiliations with many universities show your loyalty, commitment and dedication to SN &TSNA. More than these institutions I shall certainly miss you.
My request is this: please reconsider your decision.
Thanks and regards,


Dr T S Surendran
Vice Chairman & Director – Dept of Paediatric Ophthalmology
Sankara Nethralaya

Shri Mahalingam’s resignation from our service came as a rude shock and unpleasant surprise to me, I know quite well that he is not a man who would act on an impulse and I trust that he has decided to take the step after due diligence and deliberations; I strongly believe that every man is the master of his own destiny and would not question the logic or wisdom of his act.

However on a personal note it would be hard to comprehend that the vibrant young man whom we fondly called ‘Mahali’ would not be a part of Sankara Nethralaya soon, he was a man of all seasons and all reasons, readily accessible and ever so willing to extend a helping hand with a smile to the new recruit, a student or to a member of the board. He had over the years become inseparable from the institution he served and would be missed by one and all.

Mahalingam’s sincerity, dedication and ready grasp made him a quick learner and he improvised, improved, trained his team and left his stamp in every department that he served. He had over the years become Sankara Nethralaya’s bridge with the outside world, be it the media, heads of universities or other authorities and was also a bridge to the outside world with Sankara Nethralaya, consisting of eminent personalities like late APJ Abdul Kalam to a student wanting to know more about a particular course. His working hours were not dictated by the clock and the mails and calls we would receive from him late in the night or in the wee hours of the morning would make me wonder if he had anything other than our institution in his mind.

While there are many ‘achievers’ who would put that extra effort in their jobs with an eye on the next promotion or salary hike, Mahalingam’s sincerity to his job was more deep rooted and came from a natural attachment to his institution and deep commitment to its growth and that made all the difference between him and other achievers.

Being at the helm of affairs of a new educational institution was a great challenge and he did a commendable job of making the Sankara Nethralaya Academy a great success in terms of faculty, curriculum, affiliations, student enrolment, press coverage etc. On the personal side i have been highly impressed by his respect and regard for his teachers who taught him in school and his reverential interaction with them that continues to this day.

In conclusion I would say that he entered our premises as a ‘student’ from a humble background, displayed extraordinary commitment and skills at everything he did and today he exits as a ‘Master’ of every facet of Medicare dispensing and academics. He contributed to the growth of the institution and grew along with it, qualifying himself and equipping himself with better skills every day. We would miss, him both professionally and as a warm, affable down to earth   person who could be relied upon in any situation.
I wish him the very best in his professional and personal life and pray that he reaches glorious heights in his career.

I am very fortunate to have known Mr. A. Mahalingam through my association with The Sankara Nethralaya Academy for the last three years as one of the many visiting faculty members.

Ever since my first meeting with him, I have developed a great admiration for his width of knowledge, profound experience in the Health  Care Delivery domain, passion for excellence in whatever he does and the easy affability.

It is difficult not to get drawn to his sterling personal qualities, commitment to work, the quality and ease seen in his written communications and his ever-smiling countenance.

Any organization or health care institution should be lucky to have Mr. Mahalingam as a key executive in the set up. The organization is bound to benifit from his consistently measurable and qualitative contribution.

I have immense pleasure in wishing him all the success in his endeavours and a glorious future.

Mr S R Gandhi

Dear Mahali Sir,
It really is painful for person who is close to silver jubilee, having to leave an organisation like, sn repute, to have a great heart to leave.

With my experience of 27 years in sales and marketing of pharmaceuticals, it was humane of you to enrol me in your academy for the certificate course and showing us what health care management is.

Your decision to leave sn, will be missed by many in sn,and to people like me who we know only for a few months.
This shows a personality of human resources who would like to with with you forever.
As a person who I know, you have the ability to mould people to work with you to his potential, in any field whom you would want to.

To run a organisation of healthcare, a person of your ability will be lucky to have your experience and vigour, and the organisation will be proud to have you forever.
I wish you all the best in your career.

Dear Mahalingam sir,
Good evening.
I find it extremely difficult to absorb and reconcile with the contents of your mail. I am just not able to conceive of  TSNA as an institution without you . Our association has not been for long but the kind of positive impact you haVE made on me has been unique and I have learned a lot of life skills from you.
I am sure every one associated with you at SN/TSNA as an entity, will miss you personally and professionally. It is going to be now a massive gain for the Hospital group where you are joining as Administration & Academic Head. Your passion, commitment, experience, strong work ethic and bonding with people would catapult you to greater heights in your career.
My hearty good wishes and blessings,



Good luck Mahalingam!
All..........  the best!
Please stay in touch over email with me and DR TVS!
God bless you and your family!

 I have plans of starting a school of optometry and paramedical sciences in Dubai which has a got huge scope and I may do that soon. I will need you then if you are interested.
 Till then, wish you all the best for your successful future!!
