Prem Das Rai

Sikkim’s king indentified his talent at a very young age. He was sent to study in IIT and then in IIM. He even got himself a lucrative job in a multinational company. But he was indebted to the land he was born in. He returned to Sikkim to do something meaningful. He opened a computer institute and gave the state a first brush with the technology. He used his knowledge to enhance agricultural facilities in the state. Meanwhile, he joined a party in 1993. Later, he became an MP too.

Rai was associated in training people of Sikkim in IT and agricultural technology.

“We should not only be an engineer, we should be a social engineer who is sensitive toward our society,” he said.
