Interview with Dhananjay Kulkarni :Study Days @ IIITM Gwalior : A jaunty Journey …

Dhananjay Dilip Kulkarni: Dhananjay, better known as 'the Euler' of IIITM will always remain a source of inspiration for his juniors. Due to his lucid teaching style he is also known as 'The Professor' and believe me he is more capable in binding students than a regular Prof. I'm still remembering the '64 X 64 Chess board' problem and its '2 X 2', 2 min. soln.[:)] of his lecture on Discrete mathematics class.

On the other note he is a true artisan, a painter. In 'Tabla' he was Zakir Huesen of IIITM. Each year the 'Saiyon Ne' trio of Dhananjay, Sandeep and Ankit has rocked the stage of Aurora.

Q.1. Your Intro ? (the first question for every IIITMite in so called intro :))
IPG 2002; often made the judge of the singing competitions to avoid me participating it and the co-founder of AIFA (All India Fatta Association), a now dormant organization that used to foster budding artists fond of cracking crappy jokes.

Q. 2. Define IIITM in your word?

(Off the records) When I was caught sleeping in my lab. (On the records) Amazing juniors. Each moment with them is a memory.

Q. 4.Technology and Management in your words, how it become more special when it comes for IIITM ?
An amazing confluence of the instrument (technology) and the skill to use it (management). Though a very benign thought, it'll need some time to get impressed in the students as well as the industry.

The underlying principle was freedom to study. We got the time to study whatever we wanted. We were never spoon-fed, and often were left to ourselves. That led us to form study groups, and mutual co-operation.

Q. 6. A message to your all juniors, (something you aspired most @ IIITM and want the same in your juniors) …
Create a passion for anything, don't let go of it. You'll be benefit from it someday later.

No one could (probably) beat the rose gardens we used to have.
