Live for something – Do good and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storms can never destroy – write your name in kindness, love and mercy on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with year by year, and you will never be forgotten – your name and your deeds will shine as the stars of heaven” – Chalmers

He solemnly reckoned that students deserved to have inspiring and interesting classes for which he pushed learning by doing and endeavoured to go an extra mile to provide global opportunities for them.
Besides he was invariably interested in sports, so the promotion of sports in the region became one of his paramount concerns.
