Swarnajayanti and Bhatnagar

Via Giridhar (here and here), we have some great news about this year's Swarnajayanti Fellowships and Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prizes.

It's wonderful to find several friends in these lists. Hearty congratulations to:

  • N. Ravishankar (IISc), who has a Swarnajayanti in Engineering (he's also an alumnus of our Department).

  • G. Ananthasuresh (IISc), one of the Bhatnagar winners in Engineering.

  • Umesh Waghmare (JNCASR), one of the Bhatnagar winners in Physics.

In addition, the lists also feature a couple more researchers from Bangalore: Swapan Pati (JNCASR, Bhatnagar in Chemistry) and Kaushal Verma (IISc, Swarnajayanti in Mathematics).
