Myself and Vitam

Viswanadha brothers, Sri Narasimham, Sri Nageswara Rao and Sr Dhanunjayay Raohave requested me to join them in their efforts to start an Engineering college in 1997, at Visakhapatnam
I was at the time working as The Head Civil Engg. Dept at GITAM which is now a University. So I resigned and joined the brothers
Our vefforts to start an engineering college failed that year
In the month of Feb !998 , I was at Bangalore With my soft ware daughter Satya Sarada.
At that time I received a call from the brothers to reach Vizag immediately as they were in the process of registering the Viswanadha Education SOviety. They had some feeler that a college at Parvathipuram could be sancyioned if they were willing to start it there. So I flew back with my wife and grandson.
The next step was to buy land. After a few trialswe could get some land near Sunki vllage, the ancestralplace of Viswanadhas. Their connections worked and they had finances. We could also get a bank building for temporarily housing the college and another building for boys hostel.The college was sanctioned.
I was asked to be its Principal. I along with my class mate sri K. Srinivasa Rao took charge of the college constructions and well being of thestudents. Girls were accommodated in the main building itself

I taught that batch Engineering Mechanics. I was Practically the warden. I used to stay upto 9 pm to hrlp students if they had doubts. I also made efforts to make the Thelugu medium students to overcome their inhibitions
I was in that position from August 1998 to Feb !999
Things were not smooth and I resigned but rejoined the college in Nov 1999. Again things became difficult for me to manage and I left the college

I rejoined the college as an advisor in 2001 and continued till 2002 . for some reason the promised honourarium stopped in May 2000.
Again there was a break.
I rejoined the college in 2003 as its director and left it ,this time for personal reasons. My daughter who tried to settle at Vizag could not do so. So we shifted to Bangalore. This time we built our own house in Bangalore
Now VITAM has shifted to vizag. I go ther occassionally andsome times address faculty and students
The pamphlet shows me with a mike
