... you get to be called an "old boy" by ToI and its reporter who, in this case, is Hemali Chhapia.
It's really appalling that they applied this description for someone -- Dr. Romesh Wadhwani, an IIT-B alumnus and founder of the Symphony Group -- who graduated way back in 1969!
And, no, it's not a quote from someone else (if it was, the report should have mentioned it clearly); it's right there in the opening paragraph.
The Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B) has received one of its largest private donations from an old boy in New York.
At an alumni gathering in the Big Apple, Romesh Wadhwani, founder of the Symphony Group, gifted his alma mater a purse of $5 million (about Rs 22 crore) to set up a research centre in the area of bio-sciences.
"The lab will work in the area of research in bio-sciences and bio-engineering," IIT-B director Ashok Misra t old TOI from New York. Details of the centre's focus areas will be worked out after discussions between Wadhwani and the bio-sciences faculty.
IIT-B deputy director Juzer Vasi said the centre would work closely with the six-year-old bio-sciences school on the campus.
