  2. Congratulations!! I always have a special respect towards people like this lady who go the extra mile to get doctorate. There is something genuinely beautiful and admirable about these individuals.

    On a side note, both CFTRI and AIISH (All India Institute of Speech and Hearing) had a special place in my heart for some very personal reasons. smiles… I have no idea how many times I would have visited these two places riding my little Luna!! LOL Both these institutions are very close to Kukkarahalli kere!! Oh man, oh man – those teenage years, innocent look on life and all the dreams!! There was a pub by the name Pelican in the same area. Not sure if it is still in business!! Well, it was in mid-90s!! Time flies really fast!!

  3. Congratulations Lyned…! You have always been the best, scaling new heights each time… I wish you a wonderful future as a scholar and scientist, richly contributes to human society… We are all so proud of you!!
