INSPIRING MOMENTS & PERSONS......
My journey of 'innovations' for the last 40 years has been inspired and encouraged by several people who helped me see things in proper perspectives, hand held me with great encouragement, each moment was special with continuous learning and continues even today, I feel I have learnt little and done very little ! and there still is so much to do !
I wish to share some of the few precious moments I spent with them ;
Prof. J Srinivasan , IISc who gave me a lot of inputs for my innovations, my first guide , mentor and employer ! I learnt a lot under his guidance, a truly inspiring man and my 'role model'
