A teacher in my high school, Somnath Maharana never taught me in a classroom. But I was a student in his private evening tutoring class. He was a master one-to-one teacher, taught me Mathematics, English and Sanskrit. This was in the mid 1960s. Even today, whenever I do any math or write in English (especially while structuring sentences), I feel his presence. I have forgotten Sanskrit, but I’m confident that if I decide to learn it again — nearly than sixty years later — it will be matter of weeks only.
Rest In Peace “Sir”!! My Pranam!!
