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

National Aerospace Laboratories is privileged to honour Dr Sitaram Rao Valluri at today's special Foundation Day Function to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Indian Independence.

Dr Valluri was a leading aeronautical consultant in USA, with a promising and prosperous career ahead of him, when he took a conscious decision to give it all up for the sake of his country. As Director, National Aeronautical Laboratory for an incredible 19 years, Dr Valluri contributed his best years to the development of India's premier aeronautical establishment. Building on the strong foundation created by Dr Nilakantan, Dr Valluri transformed NAL into a potent and remarkable force in Indian aeronautics, making it one of the country's best high science high technology laboratories with all-round capability in every aeronautical discipline.

As the first Director-General of Aeronautical Development Agency, Dr Valluri laid the strong foundations required for the successful design and development of India's Light Combat Aircraft.

As we complete 38 years of existence, all of us at NAL gratefully acknowledge the contributions of this indomitable visionary, unwavering patriot and crusading colossus.
