And during his nostalgic moment, the eighty-three-year-old octogenarian shares his desire to help his alma mater, Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, to develop courses on GPS. “I will spend the money, for they must upgrade themselves,” he says. He asks me if I could help him connect with someone, which I do. I hope it works out, and the college can benefit from one of its most stellar alumni, for they don’t make people like Dr. Grewal anymore.
