Indeed a Happy Teachers’ Day…

Many great things have been written for teachers… they are indeed God in disguise of human beings to show us the right path… or still better- teach us how to choose the right path.

But when u get to contact your old teachers, it is a very pleasing and happy feeling that they still remember you… because a teacher teaches numerous students in every batch, and still if he/she remembers you…its a great feeling.

This time, I got to talk to Prof. Rahul Dahatonde, my BE Project guide from Fr. CRCE. First of all- I want to say sorry for creating a creating an inappropriate image through my blog, as i called him the “most dreaded professor”. It was just the starting of our project and this was what i heard from my seniors 😉 But later when we worked under him we realised he is a very genuine and encouraging person. Though our project was a little out of field with his, but still he guided us very well and we were able to put up something good. You can talk to him as a friend and discuss problems (though maintaining discipline is definitely required). Thank you Sir for guiding us & encouraging us to put our best. There have been other great profs at Fr. CRCE like Prof. BR Prabhu, Srija mam and many others.

Also, I got a reply from my MTech project guide, Prof. Somnath Sengupta from IIT Kharagpur. He is very fine man too. Not only a very knowledgeable person in the field of DSP & Multimedia processing but also a great guide. Ever ready to discuss problems and help u out. He has such energy difficult to imagine for a person of his age. We learnt a lot under your guidance.

I also want to mention my school teachers- Nirmala teacher, Rama teacher, Pinky teacher, Saraswati teacher, Hegde teacher, Jayalakshmi teacher, Madhuri teacher and many many others (i can name all here but space constraints 😦 ). Today i feel almost all the teachers knew and liked me in school 🙂 That indeed feels great.

There had been other teachers from the coaching classes i attended- Subramanian classes, Vidya classes, Vidya teacher, Anjali teacher, AKRoy classes for IITJEE and finally Vidyalankar classes for GATE.

I have been lucky to have u all as my teachers and today, i am what i am only because of you all. Thank you and may God bless you all.
