Leader Segment with Prof. K. Gopalan Nair
1.) What is your “IEEE Mantra” which helped you to be a member till date in IEEE?
Ans.) ‘DO YOUR DUTIES WITHOUT ANY SELFISH MOTIVES’
It is the quintessence of the slokam,
Ma Bhaleshu kadachana”
This enlightening and inspirational verse from the Holy Bhagavat Geetha has always been a motivation for me in all my endeavours.
It is indeed a ‘Manthra’, the driving force that leads (prompts) you in your KARMA in the quest for attaining DHARMA.
2.) Share any of your personal experience where IEEE helped you to explore and grow.
Ans.) My association with IEEE has always been fascinating. It has immensely helped me in fashioning my literary skills.

3.) What do you expect for the future of IEEE India Council Newsletter to be like?
