S.R. Srinivasa Varadhan, is a renowned Indian Mathematician born on January 2nd, 1940 in Madras. He graduated from high school in 1955 and chose for the degree in Statistics rather than in Mathematics. He was awarded his B.A. with honours in Statistics in 1959 and his Master's Degree in 1960. He spent the next three years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University and become a full professor in 1972. Varadhan's research has ranged widely over different areas of probability theory. The greatest achievement of Varadhan was the development of a new probabilistic model that provides both qualitative and quantitative insights capable of describing rare events, and later become a cornerstone of modern probability theory. His many honors include
