As our Director comes to the end of a successful tenure, we spoke to him regarding a variety of topics ranging from his time at Roorkee, R’s university hangover and the rigidity accompanying change in IITR. In a candid conversation that ensued, Prof. Banerji let loose on how he sees IITR progressing along the years, the lethargy of the student body and his attempts at creating leaders among students.

1. 00:05 - How has your time in Roorkee been?
2. 01:18 - Can you recount the major projects undertaken during your tenure?
3. 03:45 - What difference do you find in the administrative functioning between Roorkee and Bombay?
4. 08:50 - We still have some archaic rules, a curfew on girls and a relatively rigid academic system. What are the roadblocks to changing these at IITR?
5. 11:22 - IITR has been consistently ranked as the 6th best. Taking the ranking at face value, where do you think lies the difference between us and the "original five" IITs?
6. 20:46 - Undergraduate research at IITR pales in comparison to the other IITs. We have a minimal number of students taking up research as a career. How can we turn this around?
