Top Indians in Obama admin .. Dr Gururaj Deshpande and Dr Arun Majumdar ..

Many Indians have been contributing to the growth and greatness of United States in no small way over the years. In what is tabbed as the second largest immigration of Indians from their homeland from early sixties and still continuing, (the first being the export of labourers to the tea and coffee estates on West Indies and Africa, just a hundred years earlier), Indians have earned the respect of their employers and the adopted community with their hardwork, enterprise and zeal for life !!

It is also a continuing and glowing example of the contributions made by Indian community and Indian Technological Institutes to further US interests to remain at the forefront in cutting edges in research and technology. These Indians have been providing US with the necessary innovation and cutting edge R&D technology which helped and continues to help US stay ahead of other countries of the world in the areas of knowledge ...

Dr Arun Majumdar, an IITB alumnus, '85, completed his PhD from Uty of Claifornia, Berkeley is undoubtedly one of the top alumni from IITB over the years.

Dr. Arun was the topper in Mechanical Engineering from IITB '85 and was awarded the distinguished alumnus award by IITB in 2003. Presently decorating the post of US Under Secretary of Energy, Dr Arun will contribute in a great way to the US dominance in the energy area in the years to come.

In my opinion, Dr. Gururaj Deshpande (IIT Chennai '73) and Dr. Arun Majumdar (IIT Bombay '85) are the two top placed Indian-born and Indian-trained policy makers in the Obama administration holding top, respected positions, as the Co-Chairmanship of the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship, ) and US Under Secretary of Energy respectively.
