BENGALURU: “It would not be entirely fair of me to ask Narayana Murthy as to what the industry has done for society other than making products and profit. It would be wonderful if Narayana Murthy and others collect a few billion dollars so that we can set up a university such as Stanford. I would be delighted to work full time to build such an institution without any remuneration,” Prof. C.N.R. Rao said.
He said though renowned scientists like the late Dr Homi Bhabha, Dr Vikram Sarabhai and Prof. Satish Dhawan had their roots in IISc, researchers were not been able to work at the same level as in Harvard, MIT or Berkeley for various reasons.
