  1. Dear Dr Shukla,

    You will certainly not remember me because I left IIT Delhi due to family compulsions after one year in 1979. However, I do remember you because you took our batch’s first class in IITD in the First Semester.

    Am privileged to have been a student of such an illustrious individual.

    Warm regards,


  2. Dear Sir,
    I am Rizwan Khan and believes in the Old Indian way of education. I am interested in starting sanskrit studies for the general public through my facilities at Noida Expressway, Greater Noida and Yamuna expressway.
    Need your guidance and support.
    Thanks & Regards
