In the area of Science and Technology, S.S. Bhatnagar award is considered to be the highest honor among the scientists in India. The announcement for this year’s award has been made. It is good to see three of the faculty members of our institute getting this prize: Govindsamy Mugesh in Chemical Sciences, Ravishankar Narayanan in Engineering Sciences, and Arindam Ghosh in Physical Sciences. Congratulations to all of them. One interesting observation is that this year, almost all awardees are young faculties. It is a very commendable move and worth welcoming. Hope is that, some new moves by the government will even be welcomed by the opposition.
