Careers360: Can you describe your experience in Scott Christian College?Dr S Robert Gnanamony: Scott Christian College was also my alma mater. As a faculty, I joined the college in 1973 and retired in 2005. It was a paradise for me. I enjoyed every moment of my stay there. I was so passionate about teaching and fond of several genres of literature--Canadian, Black, Indian and post-modern. The students that I got were also keen about the subject. It wasn’t as if they were learning out of force. It was a real joy to teach them.
