President visits Infosys and Indian Institute of Science

Today (May 8, 2009) President Pratibha Patil visited Infosys in the morning and participated in the Centenary Celebration of the Indian Institute of Science in the afternoon

Infosys campus has over the past 10 years seen more Presidents / Prime Ministers of countries than most campuses in the world. President Kalam, Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajapayee & Manmohan Singh had visited the campus; the heads of China, Japan, UK, Germany, France, Canada, Netherlands, Australia (plus many other countries) have visited Infosys in the recent past

On the other end of the town is IISc that too has been receiving many high profile visitors in the last couple of years. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Vice President have visited IISc in the past couple of months (as part of the Centenary year celebration)

Infosys and IISc represent the wealth generation (Lakshmi) and knowledge generation (Saraswati) aspects of modern India; both of them are located in Bangalore. No wonder Bangalore represents the new face of India that even President Obama talks about!
