"One day a call came to me telling it is call from IIT Chennai. He asked me whether I would like to donate to the renovation of Cauvery Hostel. I told him in a flash, Yes, I like to donate How it happened? First, a call from IIT, I cherish. Secondly, it was regarding Cauvery Hostel where I was accommodated for 2 years(1965-67) as an M.Tech full-time student. I did M.Tech in Machine Design in Mechanical Engineering. In those years that was the only M.Tech programme in Mechanical Engineering. So I decided to donate."
"When I was studying there in 1985-86, the cot was resting on 4 concrete blocks, the legs had been removed. It was difficult, but I could not resist writing the famous lines of Robert Frost that had the Patronage of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, "And miles to go before I sleep", on the walls of the room. The warden might not have liked it, but this was to inspire me further in my 4 year journey at IIT Madras. Focussing on the subject, was a difficult task, albeit my pricking inner conscience that used to prod me to study further."
"Jamuna was my home away from home for four years. It was the place where I met some very special people - friends for life."
