HUBLI: Ramesh B Tirlapur, Mathematics lecturer, who served at Krantiveer Sangolli Rayanna College, Gadag, for 27 years, retired on Sunday. Tirlapur belonged to one-of-rare-kinds, as he had not taken even a single day’s leave in his teaching career. He is known for conducting special classes even on Sundays and public holidays.

Tirlapur, a native of Binkadkatti village in Gadag taluk, shared his experience with Express. He recalls, “As college timings was from 7.30 am to 1 pm, I used to attend functions which were scheduled after 1 pm and I used to send my wife Sunanda to programmes, which were scheduled before 1 pm.”

He says his wife’s cooperation helped in achieving this credit. “As my two children died during the time of delivery,  we considered my students to be our children and decided to spend time with them,” he said.

He expresses gratitude to Prof B F Dandin,  chairman, Kanakadas Shikshana Samiti, the parental institution of the college. He says he dedicates his achievement to his colleagues. The retired professor is now ready to start his second innings as he will continue to teach at private tuitions.

Sources say when Tirlapur’s mother died, he left the college at 1 pm after finishing his work. Jalihal, his colleague confirms that the lecturer is ‘over-committed’ to work.
