Some of my articles
Here, is an article
Tianenmen Square, June 1989
that I wrote
after I returned from a ten day visit to China.
(We were unfortunate
enough to have been in Beijing during the
Tianamen Square massacre).
A resident's perspective on the   KumbhMela ,
which was held in Allahabad
for 6 weeks in January-February 2013,
with some related photos .
I enjoy sketching and painting, mainly portraits. A few of my  favourite portraits
and a few other   other paintings .
I am interested in (and learn) North Indian classical music
( although my preference is
for the lighter versions such as dadra and thumri
and Hindi film music).
Favourite popular science writers
AI or Artificial Intelligence.
(My favourite author is
Douglas Hofstadter. I have been a fan of his ever since
I heard a talk by him in Stonybrook in the early eighties
on Godel, Escher and Bach).
(Here, again I got interested through
the books of Stephen Jay Gould.
I heard a very nice talk by
him at Fermilab in the mid-eighties. Another very good writer
is Richard Leakey.)
Genetics and Memetics. (
is perhaps the most readable here.)
Organising this will be really difficult, since English language and novels were and continue to be my first love!
Perhaps I will postpone this to
when I have more time ( post-retirement?) and for now, just say `Under construction'!
