Lakshmikant Goenka started this petition to Alumni and current students @ MDI

Prof Bakshi is a beloved professor of MDI students. His track record speaks for itself. He was consistently voted the best faculty @ MDI by students over the last 2 decades. He teaches only out of love for teaching drawing RS. 1/- as his salary. This is one of the highest forms of giving - teaching simply for the love for giving. 

MDI admin rules back in 2016 came very close disallowing Prof. Bakshi to teach. Collective efforts by MDI alumni and students saved the day. Credit also to Dr. Shrimali, the then Director, and the board to pay heed to alumni voices and re-instate Prof. Bakshi as adjunct facuty.

Circa 2021, this issue plays itself out again. A new academic committee has been formed, on whose advisory Prof. Bakshi's contract as adjunct faculty is again put to a question mark. This is a loss to the current students - they will lose an esteemed and distinguished faculty and all for a technical reason.

We can all justify technical reasons - they always say there are 2 sides to an argument - but on balance, MDI and it's students have more to lose by losing exceptional faculty with real industry experience here over a mere technicality. 

Let's respect Prof. Bakshi's contribution and bring him back! Least we can do!
