CNR Rao gets rousing welcome

Bharat Ratna recipient Prof C N R Rao, who returned to the City along with his wife Indumati Rao and son Sanjay on Wednesday, was received at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) with bouquets and flowers from his colleagues.

An elated Prof Rao said: “I am happy to get this award which my country has conferred upon me. This will inspire and encourage the youth who want to foray into the field of science and research. I will continue to work as a scientist,” he added.

When asked if he rued that the country’s highest civilian order was conferred on him so late, he said: “ I don't have any regrets. I received Padam Vibhushan 30 years ago. I am happy that they have recognised my work.”

At the airport, he was received by his colleagues from the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) including Prof Shiv Prasad from the department of Chemistry and Physics of Materials Unit (CPMU) and other administrative officers. However, there were very few officials from the State government to receive him. After landing at the KIA at about 12:30 pm, Prof Rao reached the JNCASR campus in Jakkur where his students and other scientists were waiting for him since morning.After reaching JNCASR, he got back to work in no time.
