I am very daunted today. In the past eight or nine years, I have had the privilege of interacting with maybe seven or eight thousand groups across the world. but rarely, rarely do I find such an occasion very daunting as I do today, due to the personal stature of Dr.Kasturirangan, the institution that he and many others built up, and the quality of people participating in this program with enormous experience, a wealth of insight and knowledge far superior to mine. I had an extremely stimulating conversation with Prof. Radhakrishnan just now, a man whose personal accomplishments and tastes exceed his pedigree, if it is possible. Son of the late C.V. Raman, Dr. Radhakrishnan is even more exciting and interesting. All these make me feel incredibly humble, and make my task very daunting at this point in time.
