  • Marathon Teacher Award . A wonderful acknowledgment .

    I received this music video below from a friend and teacher his students were inspired by a song I composed entitled The Economy Song

    This production is about the economy from a child's point of view . Check it out I think you will get a kick out of it .

    I have composed a song for all teachers entitled A Portrait Of A Teachers Life now up on Google . I'm hoping to entice your interest in regard to any music ceremonial agenda .

Our lives in a way is like Marathon Runners. I started teaching medical students in 1956. You may not believe but I had to actually run after my students to catch them & teach them. As time passed, I gradually observed that my students were running after me to request me to teach them but all along I have been running continuously. To remain as a teacher you have to be a lifetime learner. I learned from many sources but maximum from my distinguished Teachers & my Students who have spread all over the World. Duties of the teacher does not end merely by teaching, training of Medicine but he has to advise them the importance of their behavior with and creation of confidence in their patients and provide the students life time guidance, support & most important inspiration. Sirs, I accept this most distinguished award from M.U. H. S. most humbly and for which I shall ever remain grateful to the University and I wish to dedicate this award to all my Almamaters & particularly G. S. Medical College and K.E.M. Hospital & Overseas Medical Universities, to all my Teachers, all my Students spread over the World, many of whom are now Teachers & Leaders in Medicine, to all my Colleagues in all Medical Specialties, to my Colleagues in Nursing Profession , Medical Therapies, Medical Technology, Medical Social Service, to all my Patients who gave their lives in my hands, to all my Well Wishers and to all Members of my Family particularly my Parents, Wife, Son, Daughter & their Families without whose support I could not have achieved anything in my life. Many thanks to all of you for sparing your valuable time for this lovely function & for expressing your appreciation for all of us.
