Very many congratulations. KR, as I knew him whilst working with him at TNAU in the 1980s was the most dedicated individual- be it to duty, care, or attention to detail, he used to have unflinching 100% commitment; he was a work focussed person who unbeknown to him, inspired me to continue my career path in microbiology. No doubt he is a breathe of fresh air to the Institute. I can foresee that he will breathe new life and energy into this historical, coveted Agricultural College & Research Institute that taught me microbiology. Thoroughly deserved person and behind the unassuming personality lives a great human. I wish him the very best and hopefully I shall get a chance to meet up at some stage. KR, this is JR signing off from UK for now.
