Proud to be BITSian Chandra Bhople Celebrating 35th Wedding Anniversary sketching away the Lockdown Blues

Chandra Bhople is an ace entrepreneur and global professional who has worked in 6 countries for technology companies - India, USA, Canada, Australia, Singapore, and Middle East. But, his heart was always in social contribution. As a result, between 2008 and 2013 he helped establish engineering and management schools in India. During 2019, he introduced a simple experience-based method to increase concentration among middle school children in India through Bucket-a-Ball program which has shown encouraging results.

His attachment to his beloved Alma mater BITS and BITSians shows in his activities during last 20 years - mentoring student entrepreneurs, president of BITSAA Silicon Valley Chapter and board member of BITSAA International. He advocates, wherever possible, finding BITSians as co-founders, getting funded by BITS Spark, hiring BITSians and working for BITSian companies for the best results. He was deeply involved in conception of the Embryo idea for alumni talks to BITSians and its initial implementation.

With the corona virus global assault and COVID-19 Lockdown, Chandra resolved to do something different which he had never done.
