Salute! This 55 year old professor has 145 academic degrees in his kitty!Sometime I feel very proud that I have acquired four Master degrees and one PG diploma. I used to think that that was a remarkable achievement. But yesterday I have read about Prof. V.N. Parthiban, who has an astonishing 145 degrees in his kitty, and is still continuing!
Prof. Parthiban has 8 Master of Law degrees, 10 Master of Arts degrees, 8 Master of Commerce degrees, 3 Master of Science degrees, 12 M. Phil degrees and 9 Master of Business degrees. He teaches more than 100 subjects in various colleges of Chennai.
This professor is from an extremely humble background. At an age of 55, he is still active in his pursuit of knowledge and has been planning to continue acquiring degrees till his body permits. He says that he really likes studying and acquiring degrees is not at all difficult. Only problem is that he can't readily remember/recall all the degrees which he has acquired over last 30 years!
My salute to this great knowledge-seeker!
