General Thimayya Memorial Lecture – 2015
The General Thimayya Memorial Lecture was held on the 21st of November 2015 at the School Auditorium. Taking a departure from the usual paradigm of the lecture, this year, 2 speakers were tasked with the duty of inspiring the current batch of Cottonians. The 2 speakers were Dr.Rahul Rao and Dr. Rohan Murty, both eminent personalities in their fields, but more importantly, Old Cottonians. The topic of discussion was “Creativity and Academia”. While Dr.Rao gave a deep and philosophical take on the topic, Dr.Murty took a more contemporary approach, his speech replete with countless computer science references. Complete with an interesting question and answer session, this year’s iteration of the General Thimayya Memorial Lecture was a grand success.
