2/2012 India does it !

The Year 2012 starts with some bright news. For a whole year we have not seen a single case of polio in India. Thanks to the efforts of everyone concerned, polio is on the way out from India. Reason to rejoice, time to celebrate. Till recently India was endemically affcted by the polio virus. Now, our children and grand children will enjoy a life of polio free good health. Proud to be an Indian. partha


1 / 2012 The Year that was 2011

I closed 2011 with 25 entries in this blog, and 113 entries in my "Professor's blog". Quite an effort that was. Of course the readership and feedback was as low and dumb as usual.Never mind, I will keep talking, I mean blogging.

Reminds me of an experience I had about my course on cryptography which I did in Kathmandu. I remember having informed a lot of people about this course. All of them are "very successful" computer professionals. All I got as feedback was about how lovely Nepal is and what were the tourist spots there. None of these so-called professionals had any idea about cryptography, or had any suggestion of any academic/scientific value. I am ashamed to notice the low intellectual level of these colleagues.

There is still a lot to do. I will try my best.
