Partners Part at Kleiner Perkins

Kleiner Perkins is the ever-hot VC of Sand Hill Road, the most-desired venture capital firm around.
So it's big news when partners leave. Private Equity Week reports that Vinod Khosla has gone part-time, and that Tom "T. J." Jermoluk left last year.

Khosla plans to spend more time encouraging entrepeneurs in his homeland of India, where he's currently is travelling.

I picked up this nugget of information from Business 2.0 blog

Khosla on CNBC the other day was talking about not IT services or ITES but bio-informatics and genomics that have caught his fancy in India

Another area that he touched upon was making the IITs/IIMs/and other educational centres in India the breeding ground of hot startups.
