Prof. MGK Menon is no more, RIP Sir !!

The country has lost a great scientist and a scientific administrator .. !!

Late Padmavibhushan Prof Dr. MGK Menon, FRS, was Director of TIFR Mumbai and Chairman ISRO. 

He was the  President Indian Statistical Institute, Vikram Sarabhai Fellow of ISRO , Chairman BOG, IIT Mumbai , Chairman BOG, IIIT, Allahabad.

In addition he has an asteroid "7564 Gokumenon" named in his honour in 2008.

I had the good opportunity to interact with him  at IIT Bombay during 1999-2000.

Rest in Peace Sir !!
