Rajeev Motwani has Passed on

I didn’t know who Rajeev Motwani was. It’s only when I heard of his passing from my friend Rajan in the San Francisco bay that I got to know of him. Rajan wrote, “To me, he is important because he was one of the few truly great Indians in the Valley (as opposed to the many Indians in the Valley who think they are great).”

Here’s Google founder Sergey Brin’s tribute to Rajeev Motwani.

One thought on “Rajeev Motwani has Passed on

  1. A very sad news. Dr. Motwani is one of the true greats of theoretical computer science. He has recently won the Godel Prize. He will be missed very dearly by the field. May his soul find peace and bliss.
