Re: Indian Response to Terrorism

Since terrorism has become synonymous with Pakistan, an Indian response to it should also include all efforts at a personal level, as citizens of India. In the wake of Mumbai terror attacks, all Pakis have been finally exposed to the whole world as pathological liars and insolent supporters of terro...

Mumbai Terror Attacks on Forum on KQED Public Radio

I love Prof. Ganguly - he waxes eloquent with crystal clear clarity of thought.

'Mind over matter' has been the hallmark of Indic tradition and forms the bedrock of all history, cosmology, evolutionary theories, philosophy and literature of India. This immaterial, invisible yet palpably undeniable mind has been analyzed to death, literally, by the Masters of India. If one has t...

Re: Pakistan Nuclear Proliferation - 11 Feb 2004

Exactly Rangudu. Krepon's responses were terse, crisp and realistic. Taylor, the expert on WMD and one of the former chief weapons' inspectors in Iraq, responded incoherently, almost kissing up to the Bush admin and the terrorist regime of the Pakistani state and seemed to agree with Krepon's respon...

Re: Pakistan Nuclear Proliferation - 11 Feb 2004

Today's Diane Rehm Show: http://www.wamu.org/ram/2004/r1040211.ram Featured Terence Taylor and Mike Krepon. Taylor kind of dragged India into the very first response that he gave about AQ Khan's national hero status in Pak. He said even in India such scientists are hailed as national heros etc etc.

Re: The State of Indian Science

I agree broadly with James. A certain coterie of scientists, if I may, operates on a certain sub-field and they cross-cite each other. These people are the leaders, if not pioneers in their field of research i.e. a whole bunch of ground-breaking work was done by them in the earlier days, which obvio...

Re: The State of Indian Science

I did want to comment on the RCI (Relative Citation Impact) a.k.a the "impact factor" in research circle. India stands at a pitiful 66th position; so does PRC which is at 65. It is quite evident that 3 years back the scenario was not too different vis-a-vis Sino-Indian contribution to the scientific...

Re: The State of Indian Science

I know what I was doing wrong. I have been using just the word China instead of PEOPLES-R-CHINA and Korea for SOUTH-KOREA, for the address word search. It is working fine now, though there still is a slight but reasonable deviation from the data that Salman has posted. I shall do the search for Chem...

Re: IIT Kanpur develops new block-cipher system for IN

What more can be expected out of a premier institution of higher learning like IITK? Time for the industries also to fund more such projects to the premier institutes of India (not that they are not doing it right now) besides the military. A decade of liberalization is finally bearing fruits. Give ...
