TIRUPATI: It was a feast to the eyes and ears of the denizens of Chittoor district as its Centenary Celebrations entered the second day on Thursday. The day's programmes started with a splendid presentation of eight different art forms which the culture-loving district is famous for. Artistes clad in their traditional costumes gave presentations on their respective art form much to the amusement of the spectators.
The evening slot was marked by a lively interaction between half a dozen IAS officers and seven IPS officers who had earlier worked as Collectors and the SPs of Chittoor district. Some of them were sons of the soil but held positions elsewhere in the State. Even as the incumbent District Collector V. Seshadri and the Superintendent of Police Ramakrishna presided over the session, the former collectors and SPs some of whom are still in service took the occasion to go down their memory lane and recapitulate specific instances that marked their stints in the districts.
It was quite an interesting spectacle to see the one-time heads of the district's general and police administrations mutually exchanging interesting anecdotes and their amusing experiences that marked their stints in the district even as the participants enjoyed every moment of the proceedings. Among those who participated in the session were—P. Krishnaiah, Ravichandra K.R.Anand, Suresh Chandha (all former collectors), Venkatasivaiah and Venkatramaiah (retired IAS officers from Chittoor district) and former SPs , R.K. Ragala, Roddam Prabhakara Rao, Ramakrishnaiah, R. Sitharama Rao, Ramachandra Raju and C.R. Naidu.
At the end of the session, the District In-Charge Minister, K. Raghuveera Reddy felicitated the former Collectors and SPs while Collector V. Seshadri and SP Ramakrishna recalled their glorious services for the development of the district during their tenures. District Minister Galla Arunakumari was also was present.
