Mysuru, December 24:- “The education culture that we have in India can’t be seen anywhere in the world. It has to be protected,” said titular king of Mysuru, Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar.
He was speaking at the 20th annual day of Annappaiah Memorial Education Institution, Bhyraveshwara Primary and High School at Hebbal on Monday.
“Once Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar was going to Bengaluru from Mysuru and the railway crosssing gate was closed near Bidadi. Then the car driver asked the gate-keeper to open the gate as the king was going to Bengaluru. He had told that he would open the gate for the king of Mysuru after his king (train) passes. The driver said the same to the king. Hearing this, the king (Nalwadi) appreciated the gate-keeper and awarded him for his commitment towards work. When a woman complained to the king about a bus conductor scolding her, the king reprimanded the conductor and made him give change to the woman,” Yaduveer recalled.
Yaduveer Wadiyar was felicitated by the organisation on the occasion.
Corporator Srinivas, Annappaiah Memorial Education Institution chairman Dr Jagadish, secretary Subbegowda, principal Sowmya, director Pallavi and others were present. (GK, NGB)
