At the XVI Convocation of the Pandit Ravi Shankar Shukla University, Raipur, held on January 17, 2010, I was awarded the Rajiv Gandhi Memorial Gold Medal by the Governor of Chhattisgarh, HE Mr Ekkadu Srinivasan Lakshmi Narasimhan for securing the highest marks in LLB. Those present at the function included chief minister Dr Raman Singh, eminent astrophysicist Prof Dr Govind Swaroop, veteran politician and soon-to-be-published memoirist Mr VC Shukla, state ministers Mr Brijmohan Agrawal, Mr Rajesh Munat and Mr Hemchand Yadav, leader of opposition Mr Ravindra Choubey and Mayor of Raipur Mrs Kiranmayee Nayak. (As my parents were away in Kerala, the erudite Shailesh Nitin Trivedi (SNT) stood in as surrogate, along with Sanjeev Shukla, Brajesh Satpathy and Dr Bipin Kusulia!)
