Description: Master Samsar Chand Kaul (1883-1977) was a renowned educationist, ornithologist and environmentalist of his time, when subjects like bird watching and study at natural history was unknown in Kashmir. By profession, he was a teacher in the then C. M. S. School at Fateh Kadal, later Central High School, Srinagar, continuously for 65 years and developed interest among the students in the natural history around; besides teaching of his usual academic subjects. His keenness in inculcating aptitude among the students towards glorious and everlastting surroundings of mountains, birds, flowers and forests was appreciated by the then British Principal of the School, Mr. C.E. Tyndale Biscoe, who, while writing a foreword to Master Samsar Chand's book "Beautiful Valley of Kashmir & Ladakh", wrote as under:

"I am most grateful to Samsar Chand for having taught his boys to love birds through his teaching of natural history".

a genuine teacher
the word education comes from latin `educere'which means to take out the inner self of man to make him understand his abilities. masterji aimed at this by making his students associated with their environment, the world they belong to and which belongs to them. today when teaching has become mechanical and show biz such teachers can only be remembered. but its he who has influenced a whole generation and the influence has permeated to us. I bow to this great teacher. DILEEP KUMAR KAUL
