Two important events in my life ..

Last week was very special for me in two ways.

Firstly, my son Jobin was proceeding to US on Friday 25 April, 2014 to Dartmouth, New Hampshire to take part in the Formula Hybrid competition at the Theyer School of Engineering at Laudon, New Hampshire from April 28 to May 1 2014

Here is an earlier blog entry on the same topic.. http://george-easaw.blogspot.in/2014/03/formula-hybrid-competition-at-dartmouth.html

Naturally any father would be proud to see his son competing in international competitions with smart kids from other parts of the world in an upcoming area of technology. Winning is not that important than getting to see, observe and learn from other teams coming from different parts of the world to this prestigious competition.Nevertheless, the kids fought well, they secured a decent and respectful 9 th position among 28 international terams that participated. The good thing was that these smart boys from India, the only team from India, defeated 15 US University teams in their soil !!

Secondly my brother-in-law, MG Vaidyan , my sister Alice' husband with State Bank of India got selected to the senior post of Dy. Managing Director (DMD) in State Bank of India in the National Banking Group in charge of Retail and Strategy. He gets to sit on the board of SBI. With age being on his side, I expect many more surprises to come by.

Jobin and Achaya, wish you more successes in life !!
