Extremely happy to know and to congratulate Dr. A.Sivathanu Pillai on the conferment of the highest award of the Order of Merit on him by the President of Russia Mr. Vladmir Putin. This has been accorded to Dr. Pillai for having successfully activated and launched the Brahmos Missile last year.
This recognition follows the close relationship that exists and gets strengthened further between India and Russia.
In a message from Russia to Dr. Pillai, it is said, “This honour is bestowed on you for your share and commitment in strengthening the collaboration of the project, mutual harmony and peace besides a close friendship between the two countries”.
Dr. Pillai hails from Kanyakumari. An achiever of great deeds. In observing his tremendous growth among the reputed scientists of the world, the whole of India, in general and Tamil Nadu especially the Dravidian fraternity feels proud and we heartily congratulate him once again. Our joy knows no bounds when we recollect that Dr. Pillai is one of our closest advisers of Periyar Maniammai University at Vallam, Thanjavur.
