What can you achieve in the first 35 years of your age? OK. This has wide answers, since in some field like sports people achieve their most before 35. Let me reduce the scope of the answer. What can you achieve in the field of science and technology, before you are 35 years old? May be you can win Nobel prize in Physics. Or may be you could formulate 3900 mathematical equations and considered by some as an equivalent of Jacobi or Euler. Or may be you can win TR-35.
TR-35 winners of the year 2009 has been announced. Congratulations winners. Your achievements are inspiring. If I can do half of what anyone of you have done, I would take a deep breath and hang up my boots. Special congratulations to Kevin Fu of University of Massachusetts, Amherst and Jose Gomez-Marquez of MIT to stand as best among the best.
