nice to see that the proper people are getting awarded.prof ananthasuresh is a great researcher and teacher
It is good to see that Ananthasuresh got the bhatnagar award in spite of hist short stay at IISc Bangalore. Other people slogged out in IISc and got much much better paper during their long stay! May be, the papers of Ananthasuresh during his short stay at IISc are pioneering papers! That shows that we all should publish quality paper (not quantity)| but these are all judged by Indian peers! We should ask these judges how they define quality vs quantity! A few years back a bhatnagar award in engineering went to a scientist with 5 publications from the parent institute! Those judges defined them good and best!
To Anon September 29, 2010 5:41 PMThese days Bhatnagar mostly goes by connections! You need to know right people..You may have 100-200 papers or you may have 20-30 papers...No matter, you need to feed those guys..How? It is a good research topic ``Bhatnagar award vs netwroking''' Good people do get it...but they also have some backing? Otherwise impossible...
