In this blog I am writing about my Principal under whom I worked. I have learnt so many things from him. Before joining the Ministry of defence school known as King George School he studied in Rangoon University. As a fresh graduate with an honours he came to India during the pre-independant days and worked as lecturer in Rajkumar College Raipur. A prestitious institute where he taught the Princes of India. Then he joined defence school King George School in Belgaum and brought a sea cahnge in the curriculam. In 1970 he was posted to Bangalore school and I was working under/with him.
The first meeting with him was at the School Assembly. He read the Prayer with full of life and then I understaood how the prayer should be read with correct pauses and with diction and clarity.He made an announcement that there after no body should say "He is working under somebody but must say that he is working with some body." His contention was that we are all working under the supreme power, the God..He never followed any particular religion. He joined in the celebrations of all religious festivals. He never ate his lunch alone. He always invited som one to eat with him. For him no problem was new. He used to sort out with out delay.When some one complained about his sub ordinates, he advised the superior officer to do a good turn, he should hesitate to do harm to somone one and to post pone the action for some more time. Acording to him that no one was an angel.
0ne day when we were returning from the military mess well over midnight, we had to go by an autorikshaw, because he told his driver to take the car and go home.He never wanted his driver to wait for him till the close of the party.When we reached the school gate,by the hired vehicle, he gave the driver a hundred rupee note. The drver told that he didi not have change to return. My hero told him to keep the balance of eighty reupees. Not on,ly that he pulled out his Kashmir woolen jersey and gave him. The auto driver was stunned. When he retired, he went and served an 0rphanace till his death.My hero is a rare kind to find.
