KK Birla passes away: Chancellor of BITS Pilani

KK Birla was the founder of the KK Birla group, one of the largest sugar makers in the world. He laid the vision along with Dr. S Venkateswaran, former Vice Chancellor, to expand BITS Pilani. He emphasized all-round development of the individual and was one of the last few surviving legendary industrialists of the old India. He was a big lover of our alma mater, BITS Pilani and gave his time and his money to the school. He will indeed be missed.
