The traveller

September 2011 (University of Michigan, USA)

Nothing so special about this. It was yet-another-visit to university.


February 04, 2011 (In Technology Review Award)

It was one the greatest day in my life. I was being awarded as top-3 researcher from India under age of 35 years by Technology Review, the magazine of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I received this award in Le-meredian in New Delhi. 

For non-professionals: Massachusetts Institute of Technology is worlds no-1 university in computer science. There is no university from India even in top-100.

December 2010: Receiving Thought Leader Award from CEO of Infosys

2010 has been the best year of my professional life. I got everything that I wished for. This includes the thought leadership award of Infosys. It is given once in year to an individual out of 1.3 lacs employee.

Sigcomm-2010 was held in New Delhi from august 30th to Septmeber 03rd. We have demonstrated our product: iSmart®, which got wide attention from the academicians and researchers around the globe. I can see my product growing like kids. It is indeed a source of deep satisfaction when  you see your idea getting converted into product and appreciated by all.

June 15, 2010, University of Ulster, Nothern Ireland

Academic and industry partners of India UK Advance Technology Center of Excellence gathered in University of Ulster for project status meeting. Leading from Infosys we have demonstrated our capabilities, jointly planned multiple initiatives, had fun with professors and PhD students of IIT Mumbai and Queen Mary university London.  This trip was more important for me, as the meeting place was located in extreme country side thus gave me opportunity to see the village life, agricultuiral field and many more. 
I noticed mobile revolution in India is "the best" in the world as I could not find sim cards in the locality with the name Portrush. People suggested me to visit adjacent city Colarine to get one which never happened. Email was the only means for connecting back to my family. 

March 06, 2010, IIT Patna
IIT Patna celebrated its maiden techno-cultural festival “Ansesha2010”. I was invited to give a lecture on “Using Wireless Sensor Network in realizing Copenhagen dream”. I explained how the future technology can help minimizing the carbon emission and how the dream of restristing air pollution below 350 parts per million can be achieved. Though I was a bit tensed due to recent incidences but over all this talk was well received. Covered by ETV and other news channel and by other print media.  Click here for details.
Tensed, excited, energetic and pleased

 Exhausted yet thrilled... 
January 30, 2010, BVB College Hubli
If you don't know much technical things, talk about the nice thing around you.  I spoke for 150 minutes (2.5 hours) continuously. First 90 minutes was schedule for me and next 60 minutes was based on demand. I felt the same enthusiasm and energy. Slowly turning into great speaker. Scientist and Poet comparison did a wonder here also. 
in next 2-3 months my boss will be pushing for papers beyond poet and scientist explanation.
