He went to Michigan as a Hazel Foundation Scholar and studied Botany, Plant Anatomy and Paleobotany to receive his Masters Degree again in 1965. He then did his Ph.D. in Plant Anatomy under the guidance of Prof. Charles Beck at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and was awarded Ph.D. in Plant Anatomy in 1971. He came back to MCC in the year 1971. Prof. CD was very strict and practiced a unique way of conducting practical classes. He expected students to use practical classes effectively and make anatomy drawings perfectly. The practical records of Prof. C.D. are still available in the Botany Department and students and teachers are still wondering how such print like pencil drawings were drawn by Prof.C.D. during his student days. Professor C.D. was a man of few words but a great delegator and a true administrator. He used to assign work to young faculty members and always insisted perfection. He insisted the typing work, etc. to be done only during the free hours. He has always encouraged field based research as well as lab based research. be continued........
