With Dr. Abhas Mitra, world renowned astrophysicist in Gujurat, India, where I was guest lecturer at the University of Baroda, February 2014. Dr. Mitra is internationally respected and his views on the universe are as important and make more sense than Stephen Hawking’s. I was very honoured to have had lunch with him and a chance to talk with him.
