The Indomitable Chemist The Biography of 'Bharat Ratna' Prof. C. N. R. Rao

Author Name: Dr. Arvind Yadav | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

Prof. CNR Rao is a living legend. Einstein paid a compliment to Mahatma Gandhi on his 70th birthday. He said, “Generations to come, it may well be, will scarce believe that such a man as this one ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”. On Prof. Rao’s birthday, I would repeat these words. Prof. Rao is not an individual, he is an institution, he is a phenomenon. I feel lucky that our generations could see him, touch him, feel him, experience him, learn from him and get inspired by him.
I have watched Prof. Rao as a scientist, as a science leader, as a science institution builder and indeed as a leader of leaders of science. I have also watched him as a wonderful, warm-hearted human being with abundant empathy. I have seen his childlike enthusiasm. I have watched him as `courage personified’. What follows is more anecdotal but solely based on my personal viewpoint.
Professor Rao has had a tremendous influence on my life.  He has been my guru, guide, friend and philosopher.
