Dr. N B Pangannaya: Life and times

Balakrishna N Pangannaya( -2006)


Prof. N. Balakrishna Pangannaya who died due to multiple organ failure on October 1, 2006.
He was quite active and had no sign of any illness.
He attended to the professional work at his office at Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) even on the Friday, September 29, 2006.
It is evident that he was contributing richly to the good cause of the profession till his last breath. See a detailed last minute report of his life at Mr. Shivakumar's blog

A Mysorean; Masters in Library Science (Benaras Hindu University); Doctorate (Mysore University); former faculty and Chairman, Mysore University, LIS Department; a teacher, research guide and a businessman

He was my teacher, in Library School at Mysore University, who taught me the passion and showed me how to sustain it for life.

He also initiated me into the area of Library History--that eventually led to my D.Litt degree (Agra, 1999). So great was his contribution in my life.

Pray that his soul rest in peace, Amen.
