A little about Prof. Yadapadithaya
Prof. Yadapadithaya comes from a very humble background. Born into a lower middle-class agricultural cum priestly family in Kokkada village in Puttur taluk, to Narayan and Bhavani Yadapadithaya (both deceased), he was destined from the start for greatness. The Professor did his schooling up to class 7 at the government school in Kokkada, often walking barefoot to and from school 2 km away from his dwelling. While there was nothing on his feet and very little on his body by way of clothes, given his humble circumstances, there was a lot going on in his brilliant mind. He questioned everything and his knowledge grew. He has been a teacher now for close to 38 years!
Prof. Yadapadithaya has taken up several initiatives for the overall wellbeing of the University. Under his leadership, steps have been taken for the over 300-acre campus to be turned into a clean, green and fit campus through various measures.
Another unique initiative undertaken under Prof. Yadapadithaya's guidance is that every student getting admission to a PG programme will plant and nurture a sapling on campus. Each plant will have a bar-code system containing the details of the student and the information will be published and stored. The student can see the full-grown tree whenever they visit the campus after studies.
Researchers are also asked not to compromise on the quality of the work and put in their best efforts to help society.
