Dear Reader,

Alumnus Mukund Padmanabhan ('87) has given back to KGP for the establishment of ten student fellowships, five of which will be for incoming scholars to KGP and five for outgoing scholars from KGP. Recently, under the name of Guru Krupa Foundation (GKF), a non-profit organization that was created by Mukund, a large donation was given to the newly created Academy of Classical and Folk Arts at IIT Kharagpur. We will make sure to keep you updated on the future progress of both projects!
