A veritable rant


T. Jayaraman, a gutsy professor at the DAE funded MatScience (Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai), has written a stinging critique of the way science policies are made and implemented in India.

He points out a lot of problems, and he is bang on target!

    I was disappointed that the author did not provide any thoughts on how to address the issues.

    Hari, it is true that Jayaraman's article is more of a rant than a set of actionable recommendations. However, IMHO, it is also true that the details of his rant implicitly contain some of the remedies as well?
