While all the focus is on strengthening India-China relations, Bidar is adding its mite to the effort.

A book by a Bidar-born professor of computer science from Australia is making waves in China. Rajkumar Buyya, who heads the cloud computing lab at the University of Melbourne, is at present in China, attending seminars and helping students of various institutions under the emerging field.

Mastering cloud computing: Foundations and Applications Programming , co-authored by Prof. Buyya; Christian Vecchiola, his colleague at the University of Melbourne; and S. Thamarai Selvi, Madras Institute of Technology, Chennai, has been well received.

The engineer from Koutha village in Aurad taluk has been working at the University of Melbourne since 2002.

When the university nudged him to start a software company to commercialise its innovations, he named it Manjra Soft, a take on the Manjra river in his village.

The company’s products are used in over 40 countries now. The governments of China and Mangolia have used his tools to develop high-speed trains and strengthen markets. ISRO has used them to process satellite images.
