IITs' get recognized by ...

... the US House of Representatives! (via Economic Times)

The Congressmen passed a rare resolution commending "their significant contributions to society in every profession and discipline".

Take a look at the resolution:

Resolved, That the House of Representatives--

(1) recognises the valuable and significant contributions of Indian-Americans to American society;

(2) honors the economic innovation attributable to graduates of the Indian Institutes of Technology; and

(3) urges all Americans to recognize the contributions of Indian-Americans and have a greater appreciation of the role Indian-Americans have played in helping to advance and enrich American society.

Congratulations, IITs !
