New Delhi, Delhi, India

IILM hosted its 3rd Dr. Kulwant Rai Memorial Lecture at Lodhi Road campus on November 6, 2013. The lecture was addressed by Prof Ganesan Venkataraman, Honorary Professor at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning on "Growth, Stability and Order: Their Role in Shaping the Future of Humanity ".

The Dr. Kulwant Rai Memorial Lecture is dedicated to the remembrance of our Founder and Chairman, Dr. Kulwant Rai, on the occasion of his birth anniversary on the 4th of November. Welcoming the distinguished gathering, Prof Sapna Popli, Director, IILM Institute for Higher Education, said that Dr. Kulwant Rai's "passion for education reflected in the starting of the Banyan Tree School at Lodhi Road in 1986 and IILM a few years later, Today seven high schools are living his vision… in Delhi, Gurgaon, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Jagdishpur, Lucknow and Bhopal, lighting up the lives of more than 5000 children. IILM too has grown under his wings from 60 students and one campus in 1993 to 5 campuses, with multiple programs and over 2000 students".

The first two decades of Prof Venkatraman's career were largely focused towards basic and applied research, which led to the publication of many papers in international journals in the areas of neutron scattering, some aspects of condensed matter physics, and also material science.



He is the recipient of the Sir C.V. Raman Award, 1974, Raman Centenary Medal, 1988, Indira Gandhi Award of Indian National Science Academy, 1994, Raman Medal of the Indian Science Congress, 2004. Awarded Padma Shri in 1990.

Prof Ganesan Venkataraman's address focused on knowledge, human sensitivity, caring for the world around us and sharing as the key contributors towards a more peaceful and inclusive world - all were weaved into his speech seamlessly, touching a chord with each one present in the audience.

Since 2011, IILM has organized Dr. Kulwant Rai Memorial lecture by distinguished leaders on important issues of concern such as Values: Duty, Peace, Love, Non Violence & Truth; and Indian Culture. In the past, prominent leaders such as Mr. M.N. Krishnamani & Prof Vishwanath Pandit have addressed the gathering.

While concluding Prof Venkatraman remembered Dr. Kulwant Rai and praised him for the great and noble work he did in his lifetime.
