CRS, a jewel among managers, is no more.

JamsheTji Tata laid the base for Bengaluru to emerge as the science capital of India. Over a century ago, he had the foresight to set up the Institute of Science. Soon after independence, a number of sophisticated institutions were set up by the government in quick succession - Bharat Electronics, Bharat Earth Movers, Hindustan Machine Tools and Hindustan Aeronautics(HAL). A plethora of defence research establishments like Aeronautical Development Establishment, Gas Turbine Research Establishment and Electronics Research Development Establishment followed.  Thus, from the early years of independence, the city had the unique advantage of a vast and growing base for science and technology.

Bengaluru’s stature as science city was embellished by a large number of dedicated professionals. BEL pioneered the design, engineering and perfection of the electronic voting machines (EVM) that marked a Hanuman jump in our election process. The very many collaborations for electronic exchanges, including with Alcatel, France helped in the rapid modernisation of telecom.  C R Subramanian, who headed BEL with great distinction, was one of these. Panchapakesan Nerur, former Deputy General Manager-BEL, now in the US, recalls : “CRS was a mentor for many technocrats. He was farsighted and had a cutting insight into technology. Methodical in all matters, he never raised his voice in anger and was always kind to his subordinates.

“Despite the impending obsolescence of radio valves, BEL went for collaboration with Philips to gain expertise not only in electronics, but also in precision tooling, design and manufacture of miniature components. CRS’ contribution to the growth of electronics is immeasurable.

CRS recently passed away at the age of 92.
