On March 10, 2015, at the 56th Foundation Day of IIT Bombay, I was selected for Distinguished Alumnus Award. I am grateful for the education that I received at IIT Bombay, for my teachers, for my fellow students, for my hostel mates, for the mess workers who fed me for four years, for the support staff, for my colleagues at IBM, and, of course, my family. Of the nearly 50,000 alumni, to date, roughly 100 have been honored. Previous Awardees include Nandan Nilekani and Kanwal Rekhi as well as two IBM Fellows Subramanian Iyer and Ramesh Agarwal.
