Completed eight years of service at IIT Gandhinagar on October 31st, and started the ninth year today. A very interesting feeling to have been part of this institute for so many years, that now it feels a part of me. There have been a lot of ups and downs in these eight years and I have been very fortunate to be supported by friends, family, administration, colleagues, staff, and most importantly my students. Each student who has been part of this journey has contributed to it.
Looking forward to many more years of service, adventure, and learning!
