Dr. H N

Today its a biggest loss to Educational field. We all lost one of the greatest educationalist, Dr. HN.
He was the President of National Education Society (NES) , which comprises of National Higher Primary School, National High School, National College and variuos branches.

He was one of the greatest personalities who had dedicated his complete life to one Goal.
He was one of the greatest personalities who used to live in 10x10 Hostel room for the entire lifetime with his students
He was one of the greatest personalities who din't have anything of his own, no family, no house, no car nothing
He was one of the greatest personalities who used to eat in Hostel mess like a simple student.
He was one of the greatest personalities who encouraged even 4th Std child to think scientifically
He was one of the greatest personalities who used to imbibe science into every drop of his blood
He was one of the greatest personalities who lived like a philosopher, being a science prof
He was one of the greatest personalities who followed Gandhian rules for the entire lifetime
He was one of the greatest personalities who wore only Khadi for the entire lifetime

He was Vice Chancellor of Bangalore Univ.
He challanged Sai Baba many times for his "Pawadas"
He used to walk everyday in Lalbagh
He used to listen to melodious Music.
He enjoyed our group song, One of his fav.s was " Baaro saadhana kErige, maraLi ninnee bhoomige", by Da. Ra. Bendre


I bow my head to him and touch his feet, for all the dedication, simplicity and achievement he has done for educational field.

"Simple Living High Thinking" to the core.
My father was a syudent of HN Today morning my father was narrating a lot of incidenst with HN Here goes one of them;
HN was talking to his students way back in 1970s - "One of my old students called me yesterday, and said - Sir, I was reading newspaper today morning, saw ur picture in the paper, and was afraid as to what would have happened to you. So called you up." He was so down-to-earth.
Let his sould attain Nirvana.
