Data science - A passage to India

Eversince I was a student and then a researcher at INRIA in France, India and Stats were strongly related. India was always a country of reference when it came to statistical analysis and theory. Colleagues would say that this might have been historically related to the size of the population and the requirements of understanding and governing such large populations... 

Nevertheless, it is fair to 'advertise' here a few bloggers and companies from India as their contribution to Big Data and data analytics has been tremendous.
