Sri Gangadharaiah feels that the world is on the brink of disaster and only two group of persons can save the world, Ideal mother and Ideal Teachers. Only such persons can produce future citizens who can reform the demoralized society and preserve human values. Therefore, the responsibilities of the teaching community is instrumental. They are the architects of the nation and torch bearers of civilization. Education for character building is the need of the hour and it was the fervent desire of His Holiness to start good college of education to prepare quality teachers to function at the secondary school level.
Leadership always plays a vital role in this process and was carefully nurtured. The Society is fortunate enough to have two illustrious sons of the founder who are equally zealous and committed to the founder’s goals. Dr. G. Shivaprasad, an eminent Ophthalmologist, was the Founder Secretary and Dr. G. Parameshwara a reputed agriculture Scientist is the Secretary of the Society.
