I am not proud of this compliment I got. I am ashamed and sad. Why is it that, in all these years, I have not got a single word of appreciation from anyone in India ? Why is it the world over, Germany, China, France, Nepal, UK....etc., people think good about me ? Back home, I am a fit-for-nothing riff-raff. So be it.

Dear Prof Parha
Thanks for excellent presentation today. I am circulating this to all my colleagues at Turbine Testing Lab. We have some Fluid Dynamics and fluid flow activities. We have been using license of Norwegian University. It will be nice to migrate to open source. Professionally it might not support for every thing, but for student projects, it will be good.
May I invite you to visit our TTL (if you have not visited) and make presentation to our team at TTL (we are 12 people). If you can focus your presentation of open sources on Computational Fluid Dynamics, Drawing, CAD, Finite Element Analysis etc, that will be great. Otherwise also your presentation is great.
Am I asking too much from you? If not, I request you to make one presentation to our Kath Univ High School A level students. I hope they will benefit to acquire knowledge and also they will decide how to choose their carrier path in future. I can arrange logistic. (If CSE dept wants to use this as the activity of the dept, they can facilitate).
Use the opportunity of presence of Prof Partha. He is really good professor.
Someone from the lab can do the survey or internet search for Open Sources relevant to TTL and complement Prof Partha’s Presentation.

Thank you for giving me time to explain FOSS and its possible contributions to educational institutions. I attach the presentation material (pdf format). Please use it in any way you like.
I hope there will be much more usage of FOSS in KU.
Please feel free to ask me, if you need any assistance in this matter.
Thank you once again,
