Tumkur: Delivering one’s duties without harming the faith one has kept on somebody is an attribute of a good administrator, said Col. (Prof.) Y. S. Siddegowda, Vice-Chancellor of Tumkur University.
Addressing teachers and students on Monday after being felicitated by the University for receiving the Chanakya Award for good administration by the Public Relations Council of India (PRCI), he said duties should be delivered for self-satisfaction.
One should add value to every act he demonstrates. One should always leave a mark behind him, which should be a model to others, he said.
Health and life span increases with a positive attitude. It in turn results in the welfare of the family, society and the nation. In this backdrop, the National Education Policy not only intends to promote knowledge, skills, professionalism and talent among students but also foster values in them, he emphasized.
Speaking on the occasion, Prof. K. Shivachithappa, the Registrar, said the award has made the varsity proud. The Vice Chancellor’s commitment, punctuality, leadership and excellence in every aspect is a model to others, he noted.
Prof. Siddegowda has toiled a long path before excelling. He has seen that his students and colleagues get good positions. He has influenced all those who have come in contact with him. The leadership he has shown during the Covid pandemic has brought laurels to Tumkur University, he added.
Prof. Nirmal Raju, Registrar (Evaluation), Narasimhamurthy, Finance Officer, Dr. Joy Nerella, Dr. D. Suresh and Dr. Mangalagowri M., Deputy Registrars, were present on the occasion.
