Today, Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) - Pilani is one of the leading deemed to be Science and Technology Universities of India. An institution that has seen thousands of students pass out from its portals to take up brilliant careers. A testament of the commitment of the House of the Birlas towards giving back to society. The story of the growth and change of BITS as an institution is a saga of the unyielding commitment and effort of many good men. The early development of BITS was on account of the work of a number of people who served willingly in the harsh desert terrain. People like SD Pandey, V Lakshminarayanan and D Upadhya were the few leading spirits of institution building in those days. The commitment and vision of the Birlas was forever an inspiration and guiding light. In later years, some of the country's leading academics steered BITS through its fruitful collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Ford Foundation ensuring that it was able to rise up to match the high academic standards and expectations of its collaborators. BITS : Leading Change provides a wonderful account of the struggles and challenges of the early years, the defining moments of change and discerning glimpses into the future of this marvellous institution.
