As professed by Late Ralph Waldo Emerson “Life is a journey, not a destination". Entrances of individuals to work places will be exciting and the departure of a person will bring an eye opener to the colleagues and will remind all of them about their onward journeys to different destinations having greener pastures. Identification at a work place comes with the quality of the work turned out by the individual, the valor and prudence shown during intellectual battles and the rock-solid attitude shown after the victory or the untiring reorientation and rebutting of strategies after a failure. Mrs. Geetha Pradeep, a senior faculty member of Physics Unit who conquered the hearts and comforted the minds of every staff member of Physics Unit in particular and department of applied sciences in general. Mrs. Geetha was always adored as a successful teacher by all the students and an un-parallel registrar of the department, who ruled the rostrum for about one and half decades.
Staff members of the Physics Unit of the Applied Sciences Department said adieu to their senior colleague Mrs. Geetha Pradeep on 7th December 2017 by assembling in the Physics Laboratory (Room number M-204) at around 1-30 pm. The Head of the Department of Applied Sciences, Dr. Mohammed Ali Oueslati in his brief speech appreciated the good work done by Mrs. Geetha to the department as a registrar and he wished her all the best at her new work place.
