community planting is all about.
As someone who had to deal with brickbats from residents on a daily basis, Mr Sivaram rarely lost his cool.He strikes one as a person with infinite patience to listen to people complaining, without interrupting when they are in full flow. Of course you don't always get him whenever you want him on phone, for your call gets diverted, at times,to his assistant Balaji. Who is authorized to tell callers that Mr Sivaram 'is in a meeting'.
As PropCare chief Mr Sivaram was always responsive to residents' demands, though he couldn't meet them all, to their satisfaction. On a personal level, I found him helpful, co-operative, and present in all our community activities. My latest, and the last, request to Mr Sivaram pertains to arrangements for planting a sapling at Mantri's on Pongal this Sunday.
Mr Sivakumar who takes over as PropCare chief tomorrow (Thursday) may well be planting the Pongal sapling that Mr Sivaram arranged for us.
