After being here in India for 4 plus years, I know that our so called IT industry is only a services industry for sure and the few startups here are trying to break the mould, but its a long way to go. Anyway, more on that later .... in some other thread.

For all the fault-findings by jealous detractors, Infosys is going strong, making a lot of money, creating employment for many and is showing no sign of looking back. Kutte bhaukte hai tou bhaukne do. Hati nahi rukega. The day might not be far when Infosys may eclipse Microsoft.

Infosys Prize

The Infosys Prize is an annual award given to scientists, researchers, engineers and social scientists in India by the Infosys Science Foundation and ranks among the highest monetary awards in India to recognize scientific research. The Prize was originally given across five categories: Engineering and Computer Science, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences and Social Sciences but a sixth category – the Humanities – was added in 2012. The prize for each category includes a gold medallion, a citation certificate, and prize money of Rs. 55 Lakh (over US$90000).

Infosys Science Foundation

The Infosys Science Foundation, a not-for-profit trust, was set up in February 2009 by Infosys and some members of its Board.

The Foundation instituted the Infosys Prize, an annual award, to honor outstanding achievements of researchers and scientists across six categories: Engineering and Computer Science, Humanities, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences and Social Sciences, each carrying a prize of INR 65 lakh.The award intends to celebrate success and stand as a marker of excellence in research. A jury comprising eminent leaders in each of these fields comes together to evaluate the achievements of the nominees against the standards of international research, placing the winners on par with the finest researchers in the world.

In keeping with its mission of spreading the culture of science and research, the Foundation has instituted the Infosys Science Foundation Lectures – a series of public talks by jurors and laureates of the Infosys Prize on their work that will help inspire young researchers and students.

Instead of posting all this crap here, why don't you go do some research and try to win that prize.

We make US firms more efficient: Murthy

Fe Bureaus , Fe Bureaus : Bangalore, Tue Oct 26 2010, 09:44 hrs

Infosys Technologies chairman NR Narayana Murthy has said India need not be apologetic about outsourcing, as Indian IT companies add significant value to US corporations and have made them more efficient.
After announcing the Infosys Prize winners for 2010, Murthy said, "I think we add sufficient value to the corporations in the US, so therefore there is no need for us to be apologetic, or to be shy. I think we add value, there is no doubt at all, otherwise obviously we will not have any play in that market." Murthy was responding to a question on the relevance of US President Barack Obama's visit to India next month, and the recent anti-outsourcing wave in that country.

Murthy said the focus should equally be on ensuring that children in India take up science and technology in a big way, and encourage research. "Scientific research is the key to sustaining India's growth and it is critical for India to ensure that research remains an attractive profession for the nation's finest minds," he said. The Infosys Prize carries the biggest cash award for a scientific achievement in India, with a prize money of Rs 50 lakh. This time, the Infosys Science Foundation picked six winners for the prize across five categories. Sandip Trivedi, a professor at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, received the Physics Sciences award for his work in theoretical physics, particularly his innovations in the Superstring theory. The Mathematics award was bagged by Chandrashekar Khare, professor at the University of California in Los Angeles, for his contributions to the Number Theory. Chetan E Chitnis, a scientist with the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Delhi, won the Life Science award for his work. The award for Social Sciences will be shared by Amita Baviskar, Associate professor of Sociology at The Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi and Nandini Sundar, chairperson of the Sociology department at the Delhi School of Economics.

The sixth award, in Engineering and Computer Science, went to Ashutosh Sharma of the IIT Kanpur. Sharma's contributions to the fields of surfaces and interfaces, adhesion, pattern formation, nano composites, materials sciences have practical applications too.
