Sri Late Shintoor Narayana Rai was a freedom fighter of yester years, an award winning teacher and above all a humble man with noble  thoughts and interests. He was the guiding spirit for the establishment of Vidyarashmi Vidyalaya and he with his noble hands inaugurated the Vidyarashmi Vidyalaya in the year 2001, and went to rest in the heavenly abode the  same year. The light of his life is still guiding us.
