A ‘Guru vandana’ programme was observed by 1987-1991 batch students of MGSV College at the college hall, here recently.
The teachers’ appreciation programme ‘Guru vandana’ proved to be a useful occasion for the students to show their reverence to the teachers. It highlighted the importance of teachers in shaping future citizens of the country.
Inaugurating the programme, MGSV College Principal B Mahadevaswamy said that we have been emphasising the importance of teachers, i.e., ‘Guru’ from time immemorial and hence, have been recognising their contributions.
“Guru vandana means ‘Reverence for the teacher’ – it is thanksgiving from a student to a teacher, expressing his or her gratitude. Teachers play an important role in shaping the personality of a student, instilling wisdom among them. By organising a programme like this, our students have expressed gratitude towards their teachers and it is also a sign of a good culture on their part.”
Chemistry lecturer Rajugowda who was honoured by the students reminisced old days, his experience in teaching and said that the satisfaction one gets from teaching is unmatchable and teaching is part of a continuous learning. More than 25 teachers were felicitated; the wives of late teachers were also honoured on the occasion. 19871991 batch students and faculty L Mahadevaiah, Anantharam Kulakarni, Mahadevaswamy, Chaya, Kanaka Parameshwari, Omkareshwar, Somanna, Raghu, Siddhalingaswamy, Rangachari, Madaiah, Muniswamy, Doreswamy, Shivaswamy, Shivanand, Dr Madhusudhan, T S Raghu, 0 G Nagendra, Shankar Babu were present.
