Alagu Perumal is an inspiring person. For a living, he teaches International Business and Chinese Language to MBA students at LIBA (Loyola Institute of Business Administration). For passion, he grows fruit tree saplings and gives them away for free. He runs an organization called IIIBFT (Indo-International Initiative for Billions of Fruit Trees). He encourages school students from government schools to bring used milk packets and teaches them how to grow saplings. Take a look at the photolog to hear the rest of his story.
Our lady of the farm, Lakshmi, is 5 months pregnant. We are relieved because she had abortions the last two times in the early stages of pregnancy. Veterinary doctors say she has crossed the danger line. If all goes well, we should have our first calf by early October. Fingers crossed.

I’m a big believer in bucket-lists. I remember I made a list on the eve of the year 2000 and when I turn back and look at the list, it has really defined me as a person. It has given me the right clarity and focus in pushing forward.
I have been meaning to do a retreat focused on chalking out things that we truly want to pursue in our lives. Thus was born The Bucket-List Bootcamp. More info at http://Kiruba.com/bucketlist
While its easy for us to write down the list ourselves, its far more difficult to follow up and turn them into reality. Just like how training for a marathon as a group makes it easy, gunning for our goals makes it possible with the right team. The goal of the bootcamp is to invite 15 very motivated individuals with lots of hunger to pursue their passion together and help form a self-supporting group. Each of us will push others to achieve our goals.
The event takes place at my 9 acre farm, a nice, quiet, idyllic place to relax and plan our life. More about the place at http://Kiruba.com/farmstay
The event takes place on September 14 & 15, 2013. We are currently inviting application to select the best 15 people. If you are interested, I encourage to apply at http://Kiruba.com/bucketlist/bootcamp. Click on the ‘Apply’ button. Once selected, each participant makes a door donation of Rs.3000 which will be spent towards workshop materials, resource persons, fresh organic farm fresh meals, accommodation, local travel and excursion to Gingee Fort. There’s option to make the payment in installments if you need flexibility in payment.
Do you know a person who can benefit from this? Please do share the word around. Thank you in advance.
That’s right. I have put all my Business Cards under Creative Commons and for most of the cards I have shared the PSD files of the designs. This means that you can download the original source files of the designs, change your name, photo and details and have your very own custom designed cards. Visit the Business cards page here.
I have had a fascination towards customized business cards for a long time. You might want to read this news coverage in INC magazine. There has been considerable interest from people wanting to use some of the designs. I would mail them separately. But then, it stuck me that I have nothing to lose by giving it all away. After all, most of my designs have been inspired by designs of other folks and so it’s only right for me to share it with others.
All I request is to give a link to my site or send an email if you use these designs. That’s it and nothing else.
Good luck and have fun. Cheers.
