'As a NSF coordinator for more than a decade I have benefited immensely through interaction with the younger generation and their motivation.I could see the impact of the NSF support on the students, coming as they do, from an economically backward background, who could lift their families above poverty line, thanks to NSF. To be a member of NSF team in their massive exercise to identify the deserving bright and poor students, and develop them to be fit for lucrative jobs, is something great. The immense happiness that I derive in this humanitarian service is beyond description and has no parallel.'
