"K. Balasubramanian had joined me as a postdoc. I can remember him walking through the door and saying, "Balasubramanian is too long a name. Call me Balu." [laughs] His first name was Krishnan; he's obviously from India. He was a bundle of energy and a very agreeable young man.. We keep pretty close touch. I checked with the latest list of publications that he'd sent in, and he has over 340 papers, which for a man of his age [38] is well-nigh a record, far more than many people get in their entire career. He's a very, very interesting person, and as I say, very successful by almost any standard."
