cvpic_sathyu.jpg We are proud to have such great humanitarians among our alumni community. Hearty congratulations to Satinath Sarangi of the 1978 metallurgy batch.

From http://week.manoramaonline.com/cgi-bin/MMOnline.dll/portal/ep/theWeekContent.do?contentType=EDITORIAL§ionName=COVER%20STORY&programId=1073755753&BV_ID=@@@&contentId=8428555


Satinath Sarangi kept the Bhopal gas tragedy unforgotten in the past 26 years and remains the primary contact for those who are concerned about the victims.

By Deepak Tiwari

Suman clung to her running mother's chest. The six-year-old had no idea what was happening. In fact, neither did Sushila, her mother. Everybody in their locality in north Bhopal was running and Sushila just followed her husband. After a few hundred metres she realised that they were part of thousands of people who were running away from the Union Carbide plant which was spewing deadly methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas.

While running in dark, people gasped, which brought death faster as they inhaled more poisonous gas. More than 2,000 people died in a few hours, and another 5,000 in the next few days. About five lakh people were affected, most of them continue to suffer.

Ignorance came as bliss for those who were oblivious to the gas leak and slept through the night, though they also suffered later as the gas remained till morning because of fog.
Suman's parents did not last the night. She and her brother did, and they are among the many 'gas survivors' of Bhopal.

People woke up to dead bodies all around the following morning. Seema Rafique, 35, a management teacher, was a fourth standard student then. On the fateful night only she, her two sisters and brother were at home, as her father was working in Bhusawal and mother had gone to attend a wedding. "By midnight my sister started feeling uneasy, vomiting and coughing. She had swollen, red eyes and breathing problems. In a few minutes all of us started feeling the same,'' says Seema. The elder sister consoled them saying it was tear gas, which had been used by the police to curb anti-Sikh riots after the assassination of prime minister Indira Gandhi more than a month earlier.

"We decided not to come out of the blanket and closed all the doors and windows, putting paper in the gaps to make the house air-tight," says Seema. "Next morning my brother and me, as usual, were on our way to school and the bus stop was across the railway station. We were thinking why so many people are sleeping outside railway station. An old lady asked for water from my bottle and I gave her. She did not return the bottle but clasped it and slept again. I complained to my brother but he said to leave it. I cried because the bottle was a birthday gift. We had to jump over the people who were lying on the road to make our way."

There were dead bodies all over Bhopal as people collapsed while trying to run away. Champadevi Shukla, who lost five family members to the tragedy, says, "I ran away from Hamidia Hospital after somebody put me among corpses thinking I was dead. I was only unconscious."

Bhopal resembled hell the next two days, with rotting dead bodies of people lay unattended with those of animals. Women and children could be seen everywhere searching for their family members. Army trucks were deployed to remove dead bodies, but soon they had to be used to carry ailing people.

While the dance of death was in full swing in Bhopal, 145km away in Piparia village, a young man was listening intently to the radio reports on the tragedy. Satinath Sarangi, or Sathyu as he is fondly called, was working with a voluntary organisation in the foothills of the Satpura for his PhD. The young engineer was so deeply disturbed that he took a train to Bhopal the next day. He never returned to the world of metallurgical engineering, which he had studied at an advanced level.

The government has appointed R K Singh as the Chairman and Managing Director of state-owned Bharat Petroleum Corp Ltd (BPCL).

Singh, who currently holds the portfolio of Director (Refineries) at BPCL, is likely to assume the new role tomorrow.

In a statement, BPCL said, "Singh has been appointed by the Competent Authority as Chairman and Managing Director from the date of taking over charge of the post."

A mechanical engineer from Banaras Hindu University, Singh, 57, will hold the reins of the nation's second largest public sector refining and marketing company till September, 2013.

The position of Chairman and Managing Director at BPCL fell vacant in August after Ashok Sinha resigned from the job. Currently, S Radhakrishnan, BPCL Director (Marketing), is officiating as the Chairman and Managing Director of the company.

Sources said Sinha put in his papers in May, apparently because the government was not inclined to give him an extension of service after he completed his five-year tenure on August 18, 2010.

Sinha, 58, was eligible for an extension of tenure till he attained superannuation at the age of 60 years in February, 2012.

The government's headhunter, the Public Enterprise Selection Board (PESB), named R K Singh as its No. 1 choice to head BPCL after interviewing five candidates on September 28.

"Singh had a short stint in the private sector before joining BPCL in 1978 in the refining division," the BPCL statement said. "During a career span of over three decades, he has held various assignments, both in the refinery and marketing divisions of the company."

In March, 2006, Singh was appointed as Director (Refineries) of BPCL, responsible for the operation of the Mumbai and Kochi refineries and subsidiary Numaligarh Refinery.

He played a key role in planning and implementation of the 6-million tonnes per annum Bharat Oman Refinery Project at Bina, Madhya Pradesh.

From http://www.hindustantimes.com/Diamond-studded-planet-discovered/Article1-636207.aspx


Astronomers led by Indian American Nikku Madhusudhan have discovered a giant planet with an atmosphere and core dominated by carbon, raising the prospect that diamond-studded stars may exist. Madhusudan, a Banaras Hindu University (BHU) alumnus now at Princeton University, New Jersey, and his colleagues have observed that an extremely hot planet discovered last year has more carbon than oxygen - a feature never observed on a planet until now.

Also reported at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/space/8190005/Diamonds-could-be-as-common-as-sand-on-some-planets.html

Dr. Madhusudan is a graduate of the 2002 batch of Mining Engg from IT-BHU. We congratulate him on this achievement. His homepage is at http://www.astro.princeton.edu/~nmadhu/Nikku_Madhusudhan/Home.html
