From what I see this 1975 Batch from IIT Kanpur has quite a few GEMS. Well done Bhupendra Raja and Congrats. I was in UK for months from May to end Ausust last year. Wish I had known we could have shared a Guiness one evening at a Pub. Thanks Pradip for forwarding this real good message for posting on the first day of 2003 message .

Would be nice if all members remember include their Batch, Branch and IIT details with messages.

Cheers

Hi all

One of our very own, Bhupendra Raja, an IITK alumnus BTech, 1970 - 75) is in the list of honours announced today by the British Queen. He is abrilliant engineer, an outstanding manager of people and extremely nice human being. Interestingly
enough he is being honoured for his services to racial equality. I have had the opportunity to meet him after 25 long years in our silver jubilee reunion at IITK in the year 2000. It was indeed a pleasure and a priveledge to talk with Bhupendra -
a person with immense knowledge, wit and substance.

Our heartiest congratulations to Bhupendra. We are all proud of your accomplishments.

We wish Bhupendra a long and fruitful life ahead, many more honours and accolades to win.

Regards
Pradip
