SPC Puttur bids Farewell to Prof. Dinaka Rao on superannuation
Puttur: “Teaching profession is the noblest profession. Teachers who serve with sincerity will bring fame and credit to the profession. They teach students and mold them. Teachers should not try to please the students by less teaching and giving more marks. Students may now appreciate it, but in the long run, they understand that value lies with those strict teachers. They actually aspired for their betterment rather than pleasing. Prof. Dinakara Rao is one such teacher who dedicated fully for the profession with the highest integrity and discipline” said Rev.Fr.
