07 Feb Yesterday, I went over to the venue where prasannakumars students and friends were giving a grand send off. Prasannans served the dept of geology in various capacities till he retires finally as professor of geology by end of March 16. I was asked to reminisce about this guy who I had briefly taught in 1977. A good man, determined achiever and finally a good academic. I wished him a happy retired life. But unlike me he starts off as a u g c emeritus fellow on the next day , good luck to u and your family..
