As we flow through our professional and personal lives, with the velocity of time exponentially increasing, rarely do we get the opportunity to reflect on what defines us. The Corona Virus, in-spite of the major disruptions it has caused along multiple dimensions on human life, has given us the opportunity to stop and reflect on who we are and what defines us individually and collectively. 

When I think through my life, it very quickly takes me back to my personal years between 1966 thru 1971 at Kharagpur; reminds me of how hard and selflessly the support ecosystem around our Halls of residence, our workshops, our playing fields, and the Gymkhana club worked which shaped what we are today. That ecosystem (largely made up of migrant workers) because of the COVID-19 and recent fires, is challenged today in a very brutal fashion. 

It is my strong conviction their challenge is our challenge; in terms of how we could play our humble role to neutralize the challenges that ecosystem faces, lift the hopes that have been curbed, and rekindle the confidence which has been diminished. We have the means, could we now mobilize our "will and conscience" to make a difference of the highest order? Let's defy the odds to prove to our nation that the investments the founders of IIT-KGP made, and the selfless love our faculty and support systems made toward us, were worth it.
