Excerpt from a mail received on Oct 25 2006

(From a mail sent by a well established professor of Oriya origin from one of the Indian Institutes -- IITs/IISc)

Subject: NISER at Bhubaneswar

Dear Prof Baral

I came to know about your interest in higher education in orissa through
your writings on net.We were very disturbed for denial of The Indian
Institute of science like institution to orissa.Thanks to the efforts of
many from many places that a new institution was given to Bhubaneswar for
which me must thank our prime minister.It may be a blessing in disguise
that this institution will be funded through DAE.All the DAE institution
in the country are doing better than other institutions in India.
Prof Viyogi,The director of IOP,bhubaneswar and Prof Maharana,an
internationally known scientist are working feverishly for the project to
take shape.I was amazed to see the intensity and seriousness of these
scientists.If every thing goes well ,the Institute may start taking
students from 2007 session.

The DAE representatives,and Prof Viyogi and Maharana were on Site
selection trip a few days back all over Bhubaneswar staring from Naraj
till Jatni to identify about 200 to 300 acres of land suitable to establis
the institution.The secretary,higher education orissa,the director land
acquisition,the district collectors of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar were all
there along with a large number of revinue officials.The officials were
generally helpful.I wish the land acquisition prcess gets over soon so
that DAE can take the next step.I wish to state that things are happening
in orissa now on NISER front.
