WHEN FA­HAD AZAD met Syed Ross Fa­rooq, a se­nior at Mum­bai Univer­sity, he was blown away. Here was some­one who shared his geeky pas­sion for ro­bot­ics, so nascent a field that he could barely find

some­one to have a con­ver­sa­tion with. Azad had

al­ready de­signed a sumowrestling ro­bot in school, and Fa­rooq de­signed a mo­bile ro­botic arm as his fi­nal year project — a de­vice so re­fined,

the judges couldn’t quite be­lieve it was his own work. A year later, the duo en­tered a jointly de­signed ro­bot and won the first prize at IIT’s pres­ti­gious Techfest. Af­ter col­lege, they joined hands with two other friends and founded Ro­bosoft Sys­tems.
