S. Nagamani joined Williams Lea Tag, an MNC at Taramani, Chennai, as soon as he completed his course at SIGA during the campus interview. He hails from a middle-class family and said he chose to join SIGA at the insistence of his uncle, who was an alumnus as well, that he would get a job surely if he pursues his studies at SIGA. He feels proud and lucky that he chose SIGA not only because of the promise made by his uncle became a reality, but because he learnt virtues along with his education which was rare phenomenon in any other institution. He quoted “Discipline was the priority,” and that the Salesians who taught him were always available to help the students in all matters related to their academics as well as personal problems. He said, “Though I did my schooling in Tamil medium, I was able to learn English and now I am able to speak the language fluently at my workplace. SIGA uses many techniques like singing, language drills, games and sports, assembly, film and entertainment etc., to reinforce the language skills.
When asked about his memories at SIGA, he told that it was SIGA which shaped him to a person that he is and is proud to be associated with the alma mater. He conveyed to the students of SIGA that it is a place of opportunities that are unlimited and that they should make use of them and come up in life just as he did. He thanked the staff. “Without their support it would have been impossible for me to achieve my dreams,” he reiterated. Long Live the mission of Don Bosco at SIGA without the encouragement of the staff at SIGA
