Mr. Murugan Mr.CRV and myself I am with Mr.Palani, Mr.Murugan and Mr.Raghunathan I am with Mr.Palani, Mr.Raghunathan and Mr.Jayaraman The beauty of 'Anaikatti' Few months before I have attended a training organized by LIC's Development Officers. LIC (Life Insurance Corporation of India) is a giant organization in Indian Insurance industry. I have attended many trainings in city areas earlier, the specialty now is the venue as the training is being conducted in a place called 'Anaikatti' situated few kilometers from Coimbatore, one of the city in Tamilnadu. About 20 trainees from our group traveled to Coimbatore by train and after reaching there we traveled to Anaimudi by bus and reached the place in the evening. The place is situated in hillside and its a sort of forest area. we found an amazing training institute in that isolated place. The name of the institute is Karl Kubel Institute for Development Education founded by a German scholar. Though the institute seems to be isolated, it is a right place for learning in such a serene atmosphere. We lined up in front of the main gate of the said institute for security check up and registration. They gave us the rules and regulation during the stay and not you leave the institute compound with out getting prior permission from the competent authority. They told since it is a forest area, we need to be careful as there is a possibility of Elephant attack we if we are alone in that place. Those who organized the training made it memorable by way of arranging excellent trainers who not only taught Insurance, but many other interesting subjects like personality development and communication skill etc. The training was action packed with role play and various practical workshops and case studies which was unique in all respect. Amidst that forest area, there was a nice institute premises with convenient class rooms, auditorium, library, canteen and boarding room for the trainees which made our stay easy. The food supplied to the trainees sounded like home made, and the same was prepared under a very hygiene condition. If we look from the institute premises we get the nice hillside view and the view of beautiful plants and nicely maintained garden made the place haven, ultimately we all were very happy to stay over there. When the three days training was over, we all literally asked the organizers to arrange the future trainings in the same place with much longer duration next time. On behalf our team I wish to thank my Development Officer Mr.CRV and other organizers as well as the Institute authority for arranging such a lovely learning experience of a life time, which created a sweet memory that will be dear to us in all our life.
