I am proud alumnus of RIS a.k.a. ISc, and have excellent experience of the outstanding education that I received from amazingly knowledgeable Professors, during my two years of B.Sc. (Chemistry and Physics) - in 1974 through 1976. We were extremely fortunate to be taught by some of the best Professors and great scientists in India. Some of the names that come to my mind are, Drs Merchant, Usgaonkar, Galgali, KM Joshi, Vidya Joshi, BC Haldar, Darshane, Katti, Kulkarni and many more. Those were surely the most wonderful years of my academic and social upbringing in India. I am thankful to ISc and all brilliant Professors at ISc, for gifting us with the remarkable knowledge, and installing the love and passion for Science in our young minds. Thank you, RIS.

Houses of Commons and Houses of Lords appear to me to be fools; they seem to me to be something else besides human life.

I am responsible for everything except for my very responsibility, for I am not the foundation of my being. Therefore everything takes place as if I were compelled to be responsible.
