    Many more congratulations to Prof. Satapathy sir. I was a student of Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha Tirupati. Prof. Satapahty sir is very much kind and cooperative. I was in NET Center and whenever some problem occurs we first go to sir and there was no doubt that he will solve that. And every time he did.. All the problems about anything he solved. He never told no to students. Anytime we go to meet sir regarding any issue and if he is not busy then we do not need any appointment to meet him, he first listen to us, he talked to us. Whenever we met him he had a smile on his face. I do not no how one person maintain such a smile full day. Such a great personality. Such a great person. He is a great scholar. I studied his books. In most of the books the way of explanation is so simple that one scholar can easily understand. I am very much happy that our sir is now VC of KISS University. Congratulations sir.
