Hawking's cosmological riff (click here)

It's nice to see even Cnet dedicating a part of its tech-space to Dr.Hawking. I recall having attended a lecture once in Fergusson College, Pune by a cosmologist who had done his PhD with Dr.Hawking. The lecture revolved around Time and Gravity. We listened to him in rapt attention in the amphitheatre. He had a great sense of humour and ended by saying,"I hope to see you in the future...or the past!" We erupted with a roar of laughter and applause. I fail to recall his name.

The comment section of your blog has become more interesting than the blog itself.

I guess his name is "Jayant Narlikar" . Is it or not?

Jayant Narlikar was until recently the director of IUCAA, located in the Pune University campus. I had attended his lecture too. A very down-to-earth guy.


I generally dislike Wagner. However, I heard a piece by him today and it was sublime and breathtakingly beautiful.
