  1. Saurabh, has been instrumental in the setup of the IEEE Mauritius Subsection and also in helping us bid for the IEEE AFRICON 2013. I firm believer in making things happen. He has thoroughly helped the community evolve and i believe would be a very good candidate as he has never faltered in his support of IEEE and has given a lot back to it. I wish Saurabh all the best in this challenge.

  2. Mr. Saurabh Sinha, you have a very rich biography. You have certainly made a notable difference in our region. I wish you God’s blessing in your search to contribute more to the engineering fraternity.
