I have been fortunate to work with some great students and post-docs
I studied electrical engineering (B. Tech, IIT Bombay; M.S. and Ph.D., North Carolina State Univ) and mathematics (M.S., Cornell)

My interest in voting systems is influenced by my upbringing; my maternal grandfather, Ratilal Tribhavandas Thakkar, spent two years in jail for his participation in the Indian independence movement.
"What you're saying may get you a foundation grant, but it won't get you into the Kingdom of Truth."--Martin Luther King Jr. (Original quote cited by several writers, most recently Cornel West in the Guardian).
My translations from the Urdu of Pakistani poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz and a Gujarati poem by Harindra Dave translated by my mother and me.
The official Faiz site, maintained by his family.
