I complete 10 years in IIIT-B

On June 3, 1999 I joined IIIT-B and reported to Mr N Viswanathan, IAS (of Industries Department – IT Department came into existence only later; interestingly Karnataka IT department was the first, not just in India, but the whole world!) who was the Chairman of the Governing Body.

Ten years have rolled so fast.

A lot has happened; a lot remains to be done.

God has been kind to me & IIIT-B; I am sure He will be equally kind, if not more, in the years to come

    Heartiest congratulations and good luck to you and IIIT-B. I have been to the IIIT-B campus just once, in 2003, for an interview (which I cleared), but then did my PhD from IISc. IIIT-B did seem an exciting place … and is no doubt one of the few institutes with a great vision, rather than an ‘also ran’.

    Dear Professor,

    It is inspiring to know about your work. I remember reading your articles in TOI from long time. I came across your blog now while searching for IIIT-B. You are one among those who’ve inspired me in deciding to quit the industry “s/w job” and take up research full-time. Thank you.

    Wishing you success for your future endeavors.

    All the best and a gret New Year 2010 ahead
