We have raised over $242,000 but we still need $758,000 and your help to reach our goal!
In 1962, in my first year at IIT, it was a surreal experience for a 16-year-old kid from a village in U.P. When I got sick, the guy who took care of me was the Ward Boy in Patel Hall and his name was Papaya. I still remember him.
Even my friend, Bill Clinton told me that when he went to Oxford, the guy that took care of him at Oxford was the Porter, equivalent to a ward boy. When he became President, he did not invite anybody from Oxford for his swearing-in ceremony except that Porter.
It just shows how important they have been in our lives. I call them unsung heroes. This is a time of crisis for them and we need your help.
Please donate generously. I am donating $100,000.

IITKGP Staff needs your help.
IITKGP now has over 10,000 students. Besides the teaching staff and administrative staff who are on salary, IITKGP is supported by more than 10,000 other staff who get no salary or receive little benefits during the Corona Virus lockdown.
These are the people who have served us for generations such as mess workers, ward boys, gardeners, rickshaw pullers, vegetable sellers, dhobis, and a whole bunch of other staff who have little protection.
With the lockdown, these people are without an income now. We are raising $1 million to support the staff and villagers nearby for the next six months.
Our trustees have already committed over $100,000. We need your help to donate generously to this worthy cause. These people need help and they need it now. We, the IITKGP Foundation, will be sending the money to IIT KGP every week. They have formed a committee of esteemed professors to help these people in need.
Thank you to our donors that have already generously donated to this fund!
