Citation read out at the special NAL Foundation Day function held on 18 Jul 1997


National Aerospace Laboratories is privileged to honour Professor Roddam Narasimha at today's Special Foundation Day Function to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Indian Independence.

As a researcher at Indian Institute of Science, Caltech and Cambridge, Professor Narasimha has made outstanding contributions to fluid mechanics, aerospace engineering and atmospheric sciences. As a thinker and teacher, Professor Narasimha has always pointed towards something new and exciting, be it technology forecasting, advanced computing, engineering education or the design of a new fighter aircraft.

As Director, NAL from 1984 to 1993, Professor Narasimha transformed an already excellent Laboratory into superb, self-confident and effective R&D Laboratories making their mark in civil aviation, parallel processing, aerospace electronics, surface technologies and computational fluid dynamics. In doing so he also demonstrated how a gifted scientist, engineer and teacher can become a very effective administrator and organiser, providing visionary leadership to every major aerospace programme in the country.

On the occasion of its 38th anniversary, all of us at NAL are delighted to greet one of the country's most creative scientists who also happens to be a truly cultured person and a much-loved leader and friend.
