His diminutive figure may be deceptive. But he commands respect of his wards. K. Kalidasan, Physical Director, P.S. Senior Secondary School, Mylapore, is one who strives for perfection and takes pride in his work.

He was among the 20 winners at the NDTV Profit-organised Pearson Teaching Awards 2012, for teachers who excelled in their respective field of work.

Nearly 2000 teachers from all over India submitted their profiles, out of which 75 were shortlisted initially and then 20 were selected for the honour.

Kalidasan won the award for ‘Teaching Excellence in Sports for Private Schools’ and received the prize from former India captain Anil Kumble at a function in New Delhi last week.

The event was graced by Union Minister Shashi Tharoor and actor Shabana Azmi.
