Rajat Mukherjee - University

I spent 4 years supposedly studying Electrical Engineering at IIT Madras. Those were the best years - after topping my department in the first semester, I turned my attention to things that were more interesting than electronics :-) I was Dramatics Coordinator, Art Coordinator, Campastimes (campus magazine) Editor, Guidance Counsellor, Table Tennis team captain, and a member of several teams: Elocution, Debate, Dumb Charades, Soccer.

There's more history here :-)

Then, I went to Rice University, where I did my M.S. and Ph.D. Why? More on this later :-)

Among other things, I got involved with the Indian Students at Rice (ISAR) to help organize and perform at several India Nites (Indian Culture show), DJ the first Indian Rice Radio program - Navrang, and direct Magar Kyon (the first unsung Bollywood international movie). I played carrom with Zakir Hussain!

I also won the intra-mural Table Tennis tournament many times (no one took table tennis seriously :-)), and also won the soccer intra-mural tournament with the graduate student team (the Calzones) once.

Digitized? Sheer nostalgia.
