    I feel proud because he is a batch-mate and a close friend since my under-graduate days in Cotton College Guwahati. He deserves these awards as these awards deserve him too.

    It is a positive news to know of the recognition to Dr Deep Medhi, more so, as he is my my class mate at the undergraduate level. Originally hailing from Assam, one of the most backward areas in India, to have scaled such heights in the international arena, is indeed satisfying and will act as a catalyst to others. Wish him the very best in life. … (Sanjiv Goswami, Swinburne University, Australia)

    Congratulations to Dr. Deepankar Medhi! But it doesn’t surprise me at all, having known him as a classmate and a friend since Pre-University days at Cotton College, Guwahati, Assam. UMKC is very fortunate to have Dr. Medhi as its faculty member, and for so long.
