To Whom It May Concern
As his former Computer Science professor, I am pleased to recommend Sarang Pande to the
graduate program at your esteemed university. I had the opportunity to teach him several
subjects of his undergraduate course such as design and analysis of algorithms, object
oriented programming and design patterns, during which, I was able to observe his
participation and also evaluate his knowledge in the class. Throughout the two years that I
taught him, he has consistently shown all the qualities necessary for success in a demanding
Sarang has performed exceptionally well in his academics and I was greatly impressed with
his presence of mind during lectures and laboratory sessions. He took on complex topics in
his assignments such as parallel programming, knapsack problems, NP-complete and NC
algorithms with tremendous ease, setting the bar very high for other students. He was one of
the few students from our college to be selected by Persistent Systems for a research-based
project at their Center of Excellence and to receive guidance from their mentors.
Sarang has always showcased a willingness to express his thoughts. In situations where
students hesitated to speak their minds and ask questions, he had no qualms in voicing his
opinions and putting forth his ideas. He actively participated in discussions and has always
made sure to gain a firm understanding of the concepts taught. I believe that this
characteristic has helped him establish a solid foundation in logical reasoning and critical
thinking which especially helped in during his internship.
Being his internship mentor, I was able to witness his ability to apply theoretical knowledge
practically. His work at L&T Infotech, which involved mining and analyzing large financial
data and presenting important insights on the same, was so commendable that it resulted in a
pre-placement offer and an extension of his internship by one more month; Sarang was one of
the first students to get placed from our college. I am extremely proud of his hardworking
nature and his ability to thrive in a competitive college environment.
Doing well in his academics did not restrict his participation in extracurricular activities.
Sarang has excellent communication and leadership skills, which led him to become the
hospitality head of our prestigious annual event. Sarang also successfully organized other
inter-collegiate events like hackathons and seminars.
Overall, Sarang exhibits the qualities of a leader as well as a great scientist. He has the
determination and caliber to succeed in any endeavor and he always maintains a positive
attitude. His academic and personal achievements show that he is committed to his education
and will work hard to achieve his goals. I therefore, have no doubts that Sarang would truly
be an invaluable addition at your renowned university.
