My heartiest congratulations to Dr. H. S. Eswara, Former Professor, Dean, Chairperson at Faculty of Communication, Bangalore University, who has received the Life-time Achievement Award 2013 for his contribution to Media Education from the Karnataka Media Academy, Government of Karnataka.
I want to thank him for giving me the experience and guidance to help me grow in many ways. It’s really a privilege, and an honour to have him as my professor and mentor!
With an extensive knowledge in the field of Media, Communication and Psychology, Prof. Eswara started his teaching journey as Reader in Psychology at the Post-graduate Department of Psychology at Mysore University 1968 and went on to become Professor, Dean and Chairperson, involved in research, teaching and administration at the Faculty of Communication, Bangalore University.
He taught at Manipal Institute of Communication and was the visiting professor at Kuvempu University, Shimoga. In 2009, he held Sir MV Chair in Science in the PG Department of Psychology, University of Mysore.
Prof. Eswara, who turns 75 this February says: “If I just introspect, my own contribution is somewhat scanty. However, I see my success in the achievements of my students. And therefore, I deem that the Award is a honour bestowed on my students. So, the Award belongs to all of them, and I am sure they will all cherish it.”
It’s indeed a proud moment for Us – his students and this is something we will cherish forever!
