Bharat Ratna

It is a great and truly well deserved recognition for CNR Rao. His h-index of 108 currently is similar to Tendulkar's record of 100 centuries and is unlikely to be broken by any other Indian scientist. Further, both are alike in some aspects: hard work, unbridled enthusiasm, passion and perseverance.

It is a great honor for me that I had co-authored a manuscript with him earlier this year.
