Srikakulam: Relationships are likely to be affected at one point or the other, but the student-teacher relationship can never be severed. It stands the test of the times and always leaves behind sweet memories of the teacher and the taught at all levels be at the school or at the college, observes Y. Satyanarayana, Vice-Chancellor, AP University of Law.
Participating in the Education Day celebrations being held to mark the birth anniversary of Moulana Abdul Kalam Azad at Ambedkar University at Etcherla near here on Tuesday, Mr. Satyanarayana stated that he entered teacher profession by chance and not by choice and had the satisfaction of shaping the future of a number of students.
