First, a very happy Independence Day to India!
And now for initial highlights from an excellent outreach event organised by Suresh Anand at MIT Pune. Many senior students were not able to make it but hopefully that gap will be addressed sometime in the future. In any event, about 100 students of MIT now know what FTI stands for. Five FTI members spoke, and I'm told the talks went very well. Undoubtedly, FTI is now the gathering of India's BEST leaders in two generations.
I'm posting three original images (which can be viewed by clicking on these links) and one image of the audience.
I'd like to thank Suresh Anand for his dynamic and effective organisation of this event, including getting so many FTI members to speak. Three members came from Mumbai, two were from Pune. (One more was expected – Mithun Dutta – but I notice that his photo is not included, so he probably couldn't make it at the last minute.)
More later as I hear about the details.
From left to right: Suresh Anand (organiser) and the following five FTI members: Sameer Panje, Vishal Singh, Ms. Akalpita Paranjpe, Supratim Basu, and behind the gentleman with the red shawl, Sandeep Shelke. I'm unfortunately not familiar with the names of others.
