Mysuru, November 14, 2022 (www.justkannada.in): “Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar is an efficient administrator with a smiling face. Both of us are good friends,” observed T.S. Nagabharana, former Chairman of the Kannada Development Authority.
He participated in a felicitation program organized for Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar, held at the Crawford Hall, in the University of Mysore today. In his address, he said, “I met Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar when I had come to Mysuru on some work related to the Central Institute of International languages. I am from Talakadu. Mysuru has its own specialty. It is my place too. Prof. Hemanth Kumar always think about preserving and development of Mysuru. Mysuru has a special place in his heart. He has given an efficient administration and educational system here. He manages everything so well with his smiling face and friendly attitude and discipline.”
“If anyone is seen with a Minister, it will usually not be regarding their personal work. Prof. Hemanth Kumar keeps visiting Bengaluru often for the works related to the University. He always thinks about the University and its works. Despite working so much and achievements he is so humble. I wish the University and the State gets many more years of his service and guidance,” he added.
“During the pandemic time he worked a lot. The University of Mysore has its own heritage. He has maintained the dignity throughout his service here. He really looks after the University as his family. He looks at everyone with a mother’s heart. However, his life is like a flower that blossomed amidst fire. We both have a close relationship,” he said.
In his address, Prof. K.S. Rangappa, former Vice-Chancellor, University of Mysore said, “My friendship with Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar is over 30 years. I cannot express it in just a few words. We have worked together. He has guided me like his brother. We have travelled overseas together and share many things,” he observed. “Nowadays doing good work has become very difficult. If we don’t question anything and sign all the files, we will be considered good,” he said on a lighter note.
Suttur Math Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji, Prof. S.N. Hegde, Prof. N.S. Ramegowda, Prof. R. Niranjan and others were present.
