Stanley sir has roots in KGF. He faced several difficulties early in life. His initial qualification was a diploma. Ten years later, he began pursuing an engineering degree from the evening college of the prestigious UVCE and completed his BE with a first class distinction. Later, he completed his MTech from the same institute with distinction.
Teaching was a life-long passion to him.
For more than twenty years, he has not pursued any other profession, despite getting better opportunities. He began his career in 1998. He first taught at the Bharath Diploma school in KGF. From 2004 until 2015, he was a lab teacher in CMRIT. This is where we met him and came to know him. Between the years 2016 and 2018, he served as a physics lecturer for Grades 11 and 12 in the Poorna Prajna Pre-university College. In the years between 2019 and 2021, he was teaching in the PNC Cognito School in Whitefield.
A fan of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the former president of India, Stanley sir wanted to inspire the younger generations and guide them towards actively learning the sciences. He realised that children are influenced better during their pre-university days. Hence, he chose to take up teaching students who were in Grades 10, 11 and 12. The school he was teaching in was affiliated to the Cambridge International Education Assessment. He was instrumental in developing physics laboratories for higher secondary students in the last two institutions that he worked in.
During his last days, despite having a fever, cough and difficulty in breathing, he correct his students examination papers online. This was inspite of his wife Mrs. Lakshmi telling him to take rest. That was his level of commitment and sincerity towards his job. He has passed away during the prime of his life. But he is not aware that his students have all passed the Cambridge Physics subject with the A+ grade.
His son Sachin is around 16 years and in the 11th Standard. His daughter Liza is around ten years and in the fifth standard. He was infected with Covid-19 in 2021. His health was recovering but destiny had other plans. At the young age of 45 years, his life has been cut short. Being the breadwinner of his family, his wife and children now need help. His wife has now taken up teaching as a profession but with her salary she is unable to bear the cost of living in a rented house, paying off loans incurred fighting for Stanley's medical wellbeing and educating her children, along with the daily routine expenses. Whatever money is obtained here will go towards educating her children, paying debts and help relieve the burden upon Stanley sir's wife, over the years.
