Meet Dr. VN Parthiban - The 55-Yrs Chennai Professor Who Has A Whopping 145 Academic Degrees To His Credit :-
Take a bow, everyone. Because this man could very well be our future Education Minister!
Introducing Professor VN Parthiban, a Chennai professor, who has a massive collection of degrees. And when I say massive, I mean mountain-ously huge!
For he has not one, not two, but a heap of 145 academic degrees under his belt, that he collected over a span of 30 years.
All his life, this Professor VN Parthiban has kept himself busy by applying to different courses. So much so, that now, invigilators know him by face whenever he turns up to write an exam, reports The Indian Express.
He also added that going to college didn't always come easily. And it was "failure" that prompted him to change that.
Even though the professor wants to collect more degrees, his labours have taken a toll on his memory. He finds it difficult to remember people's faces and recollect the routes to the places he visits on a daily basis.
