a letter received by mr.k.p.kannampilly dated 21st novembr 2000:
"dear mr.kannampilly and mr.kamat,
A very warm thank you for taking part in the Green Globe Seminar 'How to Increase your Marketing Advantage' at last week's Environmental Awareness Day. Your presentation was very informative and interesting and I know impressed a lot of people - particularly your excellent video!
Environmental action is still relatively new and confusing to many people so anything we can do to help spread the word is obviously helpful. Your contribution was a valuable part of this process and I am most grateful to you both for taking part.
I look forward to continuing to work with The Orchid in the future to spread the good word!

I am very happy to learn about the Environment Award, which was accorded to your hotel. My congratulations to you. All our clients who are booked to stay with you will be really very happy particularly keeping in mind the eco-friendly environment at your establishment.
I am more than confident that your hotel will receive many such awards in time to come.
Thanks & Best regards,
