Santiniketan, Dec. 19: Statistician Prof C. Radhakrishna Rao was presented Visva Bharati’s highest honour, Desikottama, by vice-chancellor Sujit Kumar Basu here today.
Rao was to have been honoured at last year’s convocation by chancellor Atal Bihari Vajpayee but he could not attend that programme. Rao, now with the university of Pennsylvania, has had the distinction of working with P.C. Mahalanobis at the Indian Statistical Institute in Calcutta.
Professor Rao thanked the university for conferring him the honour.
