ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Kamakshi Hospital Founder-Trustee Vinod Rao passes away”

  1. The demise of Mr.M.Vinode Rao is a great loss to the country and specially for City of Mysore.He was a visionary and courageous in implementing
    his thoughts.May rest in peace the departed soul.
    I recollect those days when Mr .Rao selected me as a Manager for his unit Shukra Agarbathis among several genius ,experienced and highly educated candidates.There was a candidate belonging to RSS and he advised me that the Muslim will not be considered here ,But Mr Rao selected a Muslim candidate in the final round after the completion of three rounds.Mr.Rao chaired me in the office saying “you are representing the owner of the unit”.And I called that RSS candidate and assigned him for Marketing.I learned wonderful things through his charismatic personality.I never forget his style of keeping an eye upon the unit from all the aspects and the discipline maintained.What a scene when he dressed in safari wearing black sun glass entering the gate in Red Mercedes.He never bent a little before any IT officers when they visits his office,such was the impact of Mr.Vinode Rao.
