He was delivering the foundation day lecture at Indian Institute of Management in Kozhikode on Sunday as, part of its 21 foundation day celebrations.
Great teachers inspire students to learn by themselves.
He quoted Rabindranath Tagore to underscore the need of teachers to learn.
“A teacher can never teach unless he (she) learn himself (herself).
A lamp can never light another lamp unless it continues to burn its own flame.

Research is an effective way of learning.It is always about a question or method to answer a question-Prof.Pankaj said.
