SERC Schools
- Guest lecturer for the course Differential geometry & general
theory of relativity taught at SERC school held in November, 2005, at HRI. Took
twenty seven
(27) classes, each of which with duration one
hour and

School on Gravitation and Cosmology, held at HRI during May 12 - 24, 2008.
See
http://www.hri.res.in/~ssgc/ for further detail about the school.
- Taught a two lecture (with a duration of one and a half
hour for each lecture) course on Computational Astrophysics, in
`Academic Stuff College Meeting' at Burdwan University,
Burdwan, West Bengal, India, in Feb, 2006. This meeting is organized on yearly basis by the
UGC (University Grants Commission), India, to provide the further research exposure
to the permanent faculty members of the Indian Universities and the
colleges under such Universities.
Sole Instructor.
