Dinesh Bhardia, a researcher who hails from Kolhapur bagged the prestigious Paul Baran Young Scholar Award of the Marconi Society, while the Nashik-born Ramesh Raskar has been awarded the $500,000 LemelsonMIT Prize 2016

There’s no end to the amount of recognition Indians are gaining in almost every sphere of
advancement around the world. Whether it's about being the CEO of a top-notch company or bagging an award at a prestigious college, Indians are growing in leaps and bounds.
Adding to the aforementioned, two Indian-American scientists from the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology have been awarded for path-breaking inventions.
Dinesh Bhardia, a researcher who hails from Kolhapur bagged the prestigious Paul Baran Young Scholar Award of the Marconi Society, while the Nashik-born Ramesh Raskar has been awarded the $500,000 LemelsonMIT Prize 2016.
"Everyone has the power to solve problems and through peer-to-peer co-invention and purposeful collaboration, we can solve problems that will impact billions of lives," says Raskar.
“We are thrilled to honour Ramesh Raskar, whose breakthrough research is impacting how we see the world," said Dorothy Lemelson, chair of the Lemelson Foundation.
Dinesh, on the other hand, is a doctorate from Stanford and an alumnus of IIT Kanpur. Bharadia's research disproved a long-held assumption that it is not possible for a radio to receive and transmit on the same frequency band because of the resulting interference, thus bagging such recognition.
