It seems the accomplishments of Ancestors are very important to this Clan, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: The clan tries to foster cooperation and networking among the various members. So the ones who have achieved some success and are in a position to influence or help pothers will often show off their credentials, Ray.
Goodness - and they're widespread! I like the photo!
Ayush Basu: The clan tries to foster cooperation and networking among the various members. So the ones who have achieved some success and are in a position to influence or help pothers will often show off their credentials, Elizabeth. Thank you!
Ditto what Ray and Elizabeth have already said. WOW.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Ginnie, yes they more established clan members are showing off their credentials.

Is that the Khoo Khlux Khlan Ayush?
Ayush Basu: smile You could say that, minus the pyromaniac connection. Thank you for the comment, Chad.

They all studied at uni and in foreign places, sometimes too.
Ayush Basu: I take it they made it well in financial terms and made some charitable contributions to the clan temple, which perhaps acts as a eligibility criterion for their names to go on the plaques, Louis.

are they dead? we should be able to show off when we are alive smile
Ayush Basu: I imagine these are wealthy clan members and have made some charitable donations so they have plaques to show off their academic credentials. The year seems to suggest they should perhaps be in their late sixties, early seventies, Elaine. I completely agree with your second part of the comment smile
Presumably Khoo is the equivalent of our surname but it goes first rather than last?
Ayush Basu: You are absolutely right, Bill. That is how it goes with the ethnic Chinese.
They've travelled all over haven't they.
Ayush Basu: Not much different from the students of today, I expect they went out to get some perspective on the world and perhaps they appreciate that part of their lives, Brian.

I wonder too if these are names of the deceased.
Ayush Basu: The year seems to suggest they should perhaps be in their late sixties, early seventies, but I could be wrong.

Interesting to see and read of their accomplishments.
Ayush Basu: Well at least their academic accomplishments, CP.
That is terrific. What a group.
Ayush Basu: They have all achieved some measure of academic success, Michael.

Interesting presentation. I guess every culture has its common names.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Beth.
I'm guessing Khoo is a title? smile
Ayush Basu: Yes, it is their family name, Sudipto.
