Rajeev Samant at Stanford

My friend and old dorm-mate Rajeev Samant has been flown in, business class and not the class that sits on top of the airplane, to speak to the incoming freshman at Stanford this year. That’s 1700 kids at Stanford’s MemAud. I remember that morning back in 1984, President Donald Kennedy advising us to Question Authority. Raj was one of the crazy Indians on campus; it’s good to see that Stanford can still recognize flair and character. After all, he could have been at Oracle all this time, instead of launching an Indian white wine, cultivating his own grapes, opening wine bars in Mumbai, and courting the press for social change. (see him in Time magazine.) Anyways, chalooz Raj!
