Ampikaipakan authored by his wife Puan Sri Thamayanthi Devi Ampikaipakan JP. The book launched by YB Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Muhyiddin bin Haji Md. Yassin. It was the second time D.Y.T.M. Raja Muda of Selangor came to SJK (T) Vivekananda, Brickfields Kuala Lumpur, once in 1952 and again in 2022.


Seventy years ago on 2 July 1952, Appudurai Block was opened by Y.T.M. Tengku Abdul Aziz Shah Ibni Sultan Sir Hishamuddin, the Raja Muda of Selangor. It was indeed a momentous moment for the Chairman and Committee of Management of the Vivekananda Ashrama Kuala Lumpur for its dedication to education.   The creation of the Brickfields Campus which consists of a kindergarten, a Tamil school, a Secondary school as well as a Sixth Form hub was made possible by a donation of RM 6 million from the Ministry of Education given to the Ashrama in 2013 when YB Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Muhyiddin bin Haji Md. Yassin was the Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister.
