I have the privilege and honour of presenting to my beloved readers and followers,, my husband G Ramaswamy, who has just authored an academic and technical book on the rudiments of electronics. The book is titled “Basic Electronics” and is a comprehensive textbook for first/second semester BE students coming under the ambit of VTU in Bengaluru. The book is a publication from Sapna Book House, one of the leading book stores in Bengaluru.

The author, Mr. G Ramaswamy has more than a decade of experience as a pedagogue in various technological institutions in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and the vast years of involvement and exposure has helped him immensely in writing this text book. Added to that, his stint as a freelance educationist,supporting students for projects has further assisted in his quest for knowledge.

  2. Congratulation to Mr. Ramaswamy for this great achievement!!! Lucky to be his neighbour, first of all. I am out of touch of this core subject for quite a long and was very happy to connect with these topics once again, quite effortlessly. I found the language to be very easy and understandable. I am no one to even try assessing his depth of the subject. But the way Mr Ramaswamy explained the concepts, it is very evident. Commendable job!!!
