My Princely Colleges

Author Name: Harkishan Lal Dutt | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

Has your life ever been a proverbial bed of roses? Have you had a father who always took care of all the family’s needs? Have you had the leisure of never having to think about the future until post-graduation? Did reality wake you up?

This biography of H. L. Dutt is one such journey.

After his father’s untimely death, Dutt’s mother told him that as the eldest son it was his duty to look after the family—his sister, four brothers and mother. For the first time, he faced reality, wept tears and began to plan the future. Income had dried up and they had to make do with his father’s gratuity and some savings. Life was stark, life was real and ominous.

This is the making of a teacher, and discovering his love for teaching by a chance encounter at a lecturer’s job and realizing his love for the open life, natural history, dramatics, oration, and in short all aspects of school life as it should be. He would go on to become the head of famed institutions in the nation, Mayo College, Colvin Taluqdars’ College, Daly College and Hyderabad Public School, loved and respected by peers and students alike. His thoughts on education will interest people with some novelty.

The book is about the author’s experiences, somewhat haphazard but true and sincere.
