off to India

I am off to India today to take part in the celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of the Department of Statistics of the University of Calcutta, which was created in 1941 by Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis. (One of the first cohort of students to complete their studies in this department was C.R. Rao.) The conference is organised by Asis Kumar Chattopadhyay whom I first met in Bangalore a few years ago and who visited Frédéric Arenou and myself last summer. This trip is quite exciting, from visiting this department to discovering Calcutta and Western Bengal, with a short stop in Darjeeling and the Himalayas foothills on the way there… Obviously, ‘Og mileage may vary in the coming days, depending on the wireless coverage. (But expect mostly pictures, anyway!)
