Many Mylaporeans would have been his students in the 60s and 70s, says a family member.
He was recently felicitated by his ‘old’ students of 1972 batch at a function in the school premises. He was a regular contributor to the ‘Letters’ column of newspapers including the Mylapore Times.
Said a well-wisher, “He was a strict disciplinarian and one could always find him neatly dressed.”
