UK government has recently lifted the cap placed on work visas for applicants with PhD level qualifications. UK government deserves a standing ovation from Indian students for this decision. There are innumerable Indians who have done their PhDs and are awaiting opportunities to pursue their academic careers. These students will immensely benefit from the eased visa regulation in the UK. Hope the Indian PhDs can find it easier to find avenues to pursue their research in the global arena without worrying about visas.

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first. View all posts by P U Krishnan
