IT-BHU to IIT conversion update
Chronicle Editor @ Jun 04, 2009
    view in one page and print

(By Yogesh K. Upadhyaya. Email: yogesh@optonline.net)

At present, our institute is at the critical moment. We shall have to watch development in the month of July. Our entire IT-BHU community, including students, faculty, staff and alumni are working together towards the goal of making our institute an IIT.

We have forwarded our online petition (along with signatures) to VC and eight members of Executive Council. After follow up by us, several EC members have asked VC to call for a special meeting of Executive Council of Banaras Hindu University. The new meeting of Council is necessary, as the earlier resolution (dated Feb 21, 2009) by the council does not address all the concerns about making our institute an IIT. We have learnt that meeting of Executive Council of BHU is scheduled sometime in July. We hope that issue of IIT Conversion will be taken up and successfully resolved in the meeting.

Amendment to the Institutes of Technology Act in parliament on 15th July

We have learnt that Amendment to the Institutes of Technology Act, 1963 will be taken up on 15th July in the parliament. The Institutes of Technology Act will be modified to include names of the eight new IITs being set up in the country. However, the name of our institute will not be included in it for the time being. This is because HRD ministry has not received necessary communication from our University Administration resolving all issues/concerns for the conversion process.

The reasons for not including the name of our institute in the proposed Amendment of the Institutes of Technology Act by govt. are as follows:

* Proposed IIT-BHU cannot go to Barkaccha (District- Mirzapur) campus of BHU.

 * VC of BHU cannot be the Chairman of the Governing Board of the proposed IIT-BHU; but he can be the Vice-Chairman and 2-3 members could be on senate/ Governing Board of IIT-BHU, as nominated by BHU.

 * IIT-BHU cannot be governed under the BHU Act and Institutes of Technology Act simultaneously.  It has to be under Institutes of Technology Act only, just like other IITs.

 We hope that the new HRD ministry and BHU administration will resolve the issue in a manner acceptable to all parties.

From our side, our association is trying its best to resolve the issue. Letters requesting support for IIT conversion have been sent to senior govt. officials. A meeting with senior govt. officials is also planned in near future.

151-TRA.png

Prof. T R Anantharaman (Metallurgy Dept.) passed away on June 19, 2009 at his son’s residence in USA. He was 82.

  With deep regret we have to state that Prof. T R Anantharaman has passed away.

Obituary in Hindu dated 21 June TRA obituary.pdf

 “T.R. ANANTHARAMAN (82), Retired Director, Inst of Technology, Rector, BHU (Rhodes Scholar, Platinum Jubilee Medalist, IISc.) passed away on June 18 at his sons residence in U.S. Deeply mourned by Mrs. Anantharaman, Gurgaon (Ph: 0124-2350088), Lalitha Ramakrishnan & Family, Chennai (2441 2722). Inserted by Prof. R. Parthasarathy (2259 1434).”

He was professor and head of metallurgy dept, director of IT-BHU, acting vice-chancellor of BHU and world renowned metallurgist.

 He went to study at Oxford in 1951 under Rhode Scholarship, the only Indian to get such scholarship that year. He was known for his excellence in teaching the subject and his pioneer research work on famous Iron Pillar at New Delhi.

 Prof. TRA died at the age of 82. He is survived by his wife Priyamvada and two sons, Thomas and Martin.

 In October 2007, I spoke with him for few hours over phone for chronicle interview. He talked with me in affectionate voice, although he did not know much about me. I felt like he is sitting next to me and telling me his entire life history.

 It is really a loss to us, to our institute, to the entire metallurgical community and to our country. May his soul rest in peace.

Readers can pay their tributes in the space provided below.

Time and life of Prof. T R Anantharaman
Chronicle Editor @ Jun 04, 2009
    view in one page and print

(Compiled from the following sources: Obituary in Indian Institute of metals; Metallo-2007 seminar bulletin; Wikipedia; IT-BHU Chronicle)

Professor Tanjore Ramachandra Anantharaman (Prof. TRA for short) needs no introduction. As a world renowned metallurgist, he was among the first to examine the famous Iron Pillar in New Delhi for its metallurgical composition. In 1951, he was the only one from India to study at Oxford University under Rhodes scholarship in that year (and the second from India till then). He taught metallurgy at many national colleges and universities including: Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore; Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, Patiala; and Institute of Technology-Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. At IT-BHU, he was Head of Metallurgy department and served as Dean and Director of the institute.

Professor Tanjore Ramachandra Anantharaman (Prof. TRA for short) was born in Tamil Nadu, India, on November 25, 1927. He obtained his B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Chemistry from Madras University in 1947, D.IISc. in Metallurgy from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 1950 and M.Sc. in Metallurgical Chemistry from Madras University in 1951. Following his brilliant educational career, wherein he secured the First Rank in all University examinations, he was awarded the only Indian Rhodes Scholarship of 1951 for his doctorate researches in Physical Metallurgy at Oxford University, England. He received the D.Phil. (Oxon) degree in 1954 and was awarded the D.Sc. (Oxon) degree in 1990 in recognition of his outstanding research output in many areas of Metallurgy and Materials Science.

Prof. TRA's professional career spanning over four decades included the following assignments: Research Associate, Max Planck Institute for Metallurgical Research, Stuttgart, Germany (1954-56), Assistant Professor of Metallurgy, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (1956-62) and Professor of Metallurgy, Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi (1962-87). He served BHU as Head, Department of Metallurgical Engineering, Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Technology; Director, Institute of Technology, Member, Executive Council, Rector and Acting Vice-Chancellor. After retiring in 1987, he worked as Director, Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology (Deemed University), Patiala (1989-92) and also as CSIR Emeritus Scientist (1987-89, 1993-95) and INSA Senior' Scientist (1995-2000), spending the 1993-2000 period at the National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi.

Starting with his two-month visit to Australia as Nuffield Scholar in Extractive Metallurgy in 1949, Prof. TRA had traveled far and wide in the world during the last five decades. Apart from the three years (1951-54) in England and two years (1954-56) in Germany, he had been on many extended overseas visits on assignments ranging from a few weeks to several months, mostly as Visiting Scientist or Visiting Professor, viz., to Germany (1960, 1964, 1969, 1973, 1983, 1990, 1994 & 2000), USA (1965, 1987, 1993 & 1997), UK (1973, 1989 & 2004), Russia (1972 & 1986), Belgium (1973 & 1997), Japan (1981 & 1987), France (1986 & 1989), Switzerland (1984), China (1987), and the Czech Republic (1997).

Prof. TRA's research accomplishments encompassed a broad spectrum of topics in Physical Metallurgy and Material Science. However, his most creative efforts had centered round pioneering contributions on Rapidly Solidified Alloys and Metallic Glasses. Along with his many gifted doctorate students he innovated new techniques for rapid solidification and discovered a variety of metastable phases. He directed major National Projects on Micro-Structural Characterization, Metallic Glasses and Rapidly Solidified Iron Alloys.

Prof. TRA had over 250 scientific publications to his credit. He had edited along with his colleagues Proceedings of three International Conferences viz., Metal Sciences - the Emerging Frontiers (1978), Light Metals - Science & Technology (1985) & Advanced Techniques for Materials Characterization (1989). He edited a book on Metallic Glasses in 1984 and co-authored a book on Rapidly Solidified Metals: A Technological Overview in 1987, both books published by Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland. As part of his recent involvement in studies related to lndia's Scientific and Technological Heritage, he wrote a monograph entitled "The Rustless Wonder" A Study of the Iron Pillar at Delhi," published by Vigyan Prasar, Government of India, in 1996. This monograph has been translated into Hindi and Tamil, its CD-ROM has proved popular and it has stimulated further researches and publications on India's Metallurgical Heritage

Appreciation has come to Professor TRA, in the form of several National Awards:

1.       Kamani Gold Medal of the Indian Institute of Metals (UM) in 1960.

In recognition of his numerous contributions to the Science of Metals as teacher and researcher, Prof. TRA was elected Fellow of the Indian Academy of Sciences (1964), the Indian National Science Academy (1972), the Institution of Metallurgists, London (1968), Indian National Academy of Engineering (1987 - its Foundation Year) and the American Society of Materials (1990). He is Honorary Member of the Indian Institute of Metals, Ehrenmitgleid Honorary Member) of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Metallkunde (German Society for Metals) and Corresponding Member of the Royal Belgian Academy of Overseas Sciences. In 1989 he became the first Afro-Asian to be conferred the highly coveted Sorby Award of the International Metallographic Society for his life-long contributions to metallography.

To quote from a citation of his Alma Mater at Bangalore in 1982, "Through his distinguished contributions to metallurgical education and research, by nurturing the Centre for Advanced Study in Physical and Mechanical Metallurgy at Varanasi and by inspiring generations of students, Professor Anantharaman has had profound influence on the growth of metallurgy in independent India. The primary credit for the outstanding profile of present-day Indian metallurgical research rightly belongs to him".

Another important dimension of Prof. TRA's personality related to Spirituality, Philosophy and Religion, particularly of the Vedic and Yogic traditions of India going back to over 4000 years. During the sixties and seventies, he participated in several programs of the Gandhian Sarvodaya Movement and drew inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi's spiritual heir Acharya Vinoba Bhave, the Initiator of Bhoodaan (Land Gifts) Movement. In 1974, he took steps to establish the Yoga Sadhana Kendra (Centre for Yoga) as an interdisciplinary academic unit of BHU and directed its activities for four years. This Centre is still active and popular in the BHU Campus. He also took steps to launch the Indian Academy of Yoga as a Learned Society in 1981. He was Founder-President of the Academy during 1981-83 and has since been elected President for the 1984-86, 1987-89, 1997-99, 2002-04 and 2005-2007 triennia.

Apart from over 50 articles on Philosophy, Religion and Ethics, Prof. TRA., authored two books in German, one on the Bhagavad-Gita (1961) published by Guenther Verlag, Stuttgart, and the other on Erkenntis durch Meditation (Knowledge through Meditation) published in 1977 by the Deutsch-Indische Gesellschaft, Stuttgart. His monograph entitled Ancient Yoga and Modern Science was brought out in 1997 by PHISPC, the National Project on History of Indian Science, Philosophy and Culture. His two condensed versions of the original Bhagavad-Gita of 700 slokas (verses) viz., Gita-Samgrah (The Gita Abridged) of 350 slokas and Gita-Sarah (Essence of the Gita) of 140 slokas (to facilitate reciting 20 slokas on every day of the week) had been in private circulation for some years now and had often been used for his discourses on the Gita in India and abroad. In recognition of his Sanskrit scholarship the Kashi Pandita Sabha (Scholars Guild of Varanasi) conferred on him in 1980 the title Vidya-Vachaspati, this conferment being equivalent to a Doctorate degree in Philosophy and Religion. In 2001, he was conferred the Dr. B. C. Roy National Award for "Eminence in Philosophy", the third person and the first scientist to receive it during the last four decades.

Prof. TRA functioned as Kula Acharya (Chancellor) of Ashram, Atmadeep Research Institute for the Seculo-Spiritual Heritage of India (RISHI) & Headquarters of a Unique Movement for the Third Millennium to rejuvenate the Human Family through Secular Spirituality and Scientific Yoga. The Ashram is located just south of Delhi, along the Aravalli Ridge bordering on Phase-I, DLF City, Gurgaon 122 002, Haryana, India. Gurgaon was earlier known as Guru-Gram, having been the abode of Dronacharya and other Gurus of the Mahabharata period, i.e., around 1500 B. c., as per latest scientific findings.

Ashram Atmadeep was given accreditation in 2004 as a Research Centre for Yoga and Allied Subjects by the Department of AYUSH, Ministry for Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. The Ashram is also presently publishing a quarterly journal entitled "Spiritual India Calling". The Ashram welcomes support and interaction from like-minded individuals and institutions.

TRA's family

Prof. TRA is survived by wife, two sons and a daughter. The elder son, Satya Prakash (Thomas) got IIT-JEE All India Rank # 2 and did his B. Tech, electronics engineering at IT-BHU in 1982. Later on he joined IBM's 3-member team which designed Deep-Blue, world's first supercomputer which defeated Gary Kasparov in chess tournament. Currently he is working at a private research firm in Madison, Wisconsin, USA.

The other son, Prem Prakash (Martin) joined IT-BHU for mechanical engineering. He then left the institute and completed his study of mechanical engineering at Duisburg University, Germany with 1st rank. He did his PhD in mechanical engineering (with distinction) at the same university. Currently he is working at Delphi (an automobile components manufacturing company) at Stuttgart, Germany.

His daughter Karuna is currently studying at Notre Dame University, Indiana, USA. His wife Priyamvada lives at Gurgaon, India.

Prof. T R Anantharaman passed away on Friday, June 19, 2009 at the residence of his son (Thomas) in Wisconsin state, USA.
