The unravelling of Shiva Ayyadurai ...


... has begun.

Vinod Scaria has started a forum discussion thread on Ayyadurai at the Nature India website [Update (6 December 2009): Scaria's post has been removed by the forum administrators at Nature India; it's archived here, though]. Scaria is a scientist at IGIB (a CSIR lab), New Delhi; in his post, he says quite a few things that shatter Ayyadurai's self-portrait as a professional who -- before he gave up, or, was fired -- fought against immense odds for 'freedom for science' at CSIR.

(in reverse chronological order)

4. Rahul has an update in which he questions the ethics of Nature Network's removal of the forum posts by Scaria and Sivasubbu, while keeping alive Ayyadurai's 'commentary' on the front page of Nature India.

3. This post at The Shiva Ayyadurai Fan Club presents quite a bit of circumstantial evidence to suggest that Ayyadurai may have misrepresented his affiliation with MIT. If this suggestion proves true, it will completely damage his credibility.

2. Wow. Things are happening fast. A second CSIR scientist, Sridhar Sivasubbu of IGIB, has joined the fray, with a separate post in Nature India forums [Update (6 December 2009): This post has also been removed; it's archived here, though].

1. Check out the blog of The Shiva Ayyadurai Fan Club.

* * *

While we are not in a position to comment on what really went on in those meetings (for example, Scaria paints him as not just unprofessional, but unethical as well), we can certainly form an opinion on what is available on the web. Scaria does a good job of unearthing this stuff for us:

... I am not amused to find a Nature Biotechnology in his CV with the word “submitted” in small type and his claim to have written a commentary in Nature , while it is nothing but a Blog in nature India.see it for yourself here. The homepage even features a PDF with a complete nature.com logo.

Here's the entry for his 'commentary'; as of now, it's No. 1 in Ayyadurai's resume under "Selected Publications":

S. Ayyadurai, Commentary: Innovation Demands Freedom, Nature, December, 2009.

Scaria is right: this 'commentary' is something that appeared in the Nature India website -- which is distinct from Nature, the science journal. To claim that it's a commentary that appeared in Nature (within a couple of days after it appeared at Nature India) says something about the man who has cried 'unprofessional' at every bloody opportunity.

[Thanks to this comment, I checked out this page that reproduced his 'commentary'; at that time, it featured 'Nature.com' logo prominenty, right at the top, as some sort of a 'masthead'. Evidently, Ayyadurai has been following blog comments; the masthead now features Nature India.]

[Similarly, I'm not able to locate the 'Nature Biotechnology' paper (which Scaria refers to in his scathing post) in Ayyadurai's CV, probably because this entry has now been 'corrected'.]

    fantastic disclosure ! Vinod has taken time to pick the valid points and hit him really badly. For all the Shiva Ayyadurai fan club, this should be a great news

    While I am no fan of Shiva Ayyadurai, I am somewhat amused to note the following points.

    1) This Vinod Scaria is from the IGIB, which was headed by Sameer Brahmachari until he became the DG. Since IGIB is not a big place, I won't be surprised if this Vinod is a close associate of the and hence decided to act as DG's mouthpiece in this proxy war!!

    2) If this Shiva was such a character (and it appears to be the case, why was he recruited in a haste and let loose on CSIR scientists?

    Either way, I do not feel really comfortable in knowing that one of the major S&T organization of our country is run by such a person.

  6. Anonymous said...

    Anony 5 it is quite possible that way, but fact is a fact. the major issue raised by Vinod is not the controversy between GD and SA, but rather the fraud and unethical conduct by Shiva Ayyadurai. Now that nanopolitan has verified some of the allegations of fraud, (including the sudden reversal of the masthead on the SA website) things I hope are evident. I rest my case.

  7. Anonymous said...

    Hey Anony 5. Are you SA yourself (good reason not to be an SA fan ) ? I am just amazed by the speed you guys change things around on the homepage.

  8. Insider said...

    I just went through the scathing attack on SA by Vinod. Can I have a copy of the CV ? Can anybody put a copy of it online ? If what is out is true, it is good that Shiva is in Boston. Has anybody kept screenshots of the different versions of the SA website ?

    Others around CSIR were saying he did not have a valid visa to work in the country. Any updates on this ?

    Another rumour was that hi got trashed out at a press meeting he held by journalists. any update anybody around has ?

    Good to hear directly from a person who interacted with Shiva during his stint in CSIR. If it is to be believed, Shiva is nothing less than a fraud.

    It is normal to have people raising a hue and cry when they fail miserably. Shiva is no exception. he thinks he is smart and used the age old technique , bite before somebody throws a stone at you.

    SA did a big mistake of joining CSIR. He should have joined some management school of IIPM type. He would have had a good future.

  12. Sachin Shanbhag said...

    Abi, you and other folks should be congratulated for your work on shedding light on this story. Shiva seems to have figured out how to "control" media to spew his I-am-a-martyr version of the story. But the open-source "Web 2.0" attempts by numerous commenters on unearthing his frauds is really heartening.

    I sometimes think most of the comments in support of Ayyadurai in nanopolitan and other forums, were from Ayyadurai himself disguised as Anony. Who else will support this fraud.

    Abi I have lost all respect for you. I never realized that you can stoop to such low levels to gain some cheap popularity.
    Removing the word India from Nature India, is not a good act, but definitely it does not come in the category of fraud.
    I can infer certain things from your blog
    1) You have only selectively criticized SA, not the head of CSIR or any of the scientists working there.
    Is it because, you need some favors from them??
    2) Your research has lost all steam, and you have more time writing blogs, doing crappy investigative journalism rather than doing some research.

    Shiva has updated his website with tons of news items about how he was victimised. He seems ruthless in his PR efforts.

    Abi, do you support Brahmachari and his band.

  19. Natarajan said...

    Dear Abi, Dr. Shiva. Whom to believe?

    I will believe Dr. Shiva. He is getting article in New York Times, the best newspaper in the world. And also by a very credible journalist also.

    This is typical Indian behaviour. Always jealous of people. Ok. So he cancelled his meeting because he had to meet his wife. So that is making people see things in bad light. This type of thing happens all the time. There must have been something urgent. To somehow show it in unprofessional light is not good.

    Dr. Shiva is a guest of this country. What happened to our hospitality? I am very shocked how we are going after someone who could have saved CSIR from doom. Now nobody is coming to India any more as Ramurthy sir said.

    On scientist from IGIB (CSIR):

    This is a free world of blogospehere. Any one can write anything behind anonymity. However most of these comments are without any solid factual documents and based mostly on verbal or imaginary communications. One by Vinod Scaria, the IGIB faculty is of similar type; his entire narrative is based solely on some verbal communications. Where is the solid document to support his claims against Shiva Ayyadurai?

    Vinod Scaria is a medical doctor by training with Bachelors degree in medicine (MBBS) from Calicut. He have a knack in computational methods and joined for a PhD program at IGIB under Dr Brahmachari on 2005 (co-guide Dr Beena Pillai). Before joining as the DG of CSIR, Dr Brahmachari was the director IGIB. Vinod was in the last batch of scientists appointed by Dr Brahmachari on 2007. Vinod Scaria is not a PhD yet, but for some unknown reason he got the job at IGIB. Most Indian university dose not allow a MBBS degree holder to peruse PhD (must get an MD). Relation between Scaria and Brahmachari is similar to that of Goebbels and Hitler. He is just a mouth piece of Brahmachari’s propaganda machine. So, his comment in parallel blogs (http://network.nature.com/groups/natureindia/forum/topics/6105
    and http://shiva-ayyadurai.blogspot.com/) dose not count as solid evidence. Role of these blogs are solely to cover the feudal regime at CSIR by creating noisy information in the media.

    A commentary by Shiva in Innovation demands freedom: V. A. Shiva Ayyadurai
    doi:10.1038/nindia.2009.346; Published online 1 December 2009, is clearly in Nature India and not in the Nature Journal. It not a peer reviewed publication and simply a commentary. However, including this article as a publication in CV by Shiva does not count as fraud, it is rather ignorance.

    Vinod is concerned about Shiva’s inclusion of a submitted article in Nature Biotechnology, but I think he should be more concerned about inclusion of an already rejected article in DG-CSIR’s CV page (http://www.igib.res.in/dg.html) as submitted article:

    132. The Indian Genome Variation Consortium (150 authors). S.K. Brahmachari et.al. Genetic Landscape of the People of India: a Canvas for Disease Gene Exploration.
    Nature Genetics (2007) (Revised manuscript submitted).

    This article is already rejected by Nature on 2008 and now published in Journal of human genetics published by Indian Academy of Science:
    1: Indian Genome Variation Consortium. Genetic landscape of the people of India: a canvas for disease gene exploration. J Genet. 2008 Apr; 87(1):3-20. PubMed PMID: 18560169.

    So, those who live in glass-houses should not pelt stone at others.

    An inquiry commission by Govt. of India is much warranted in stopping this media publicity war and starting a real investigation.

  21. Insider said...

    Why are you washing dirty linen in public Anonymous 20. If claiming a Nature commentary instead of Nature India Blog is IGNORANCE, I hope you would not say Shiva was ignorant of anything he did in CSIR. I know Vinod for quite some time now, and his association with Samir would not disprove facts and points on fraud and ethics he raised. The real question is who is Shiva ? is his words truthful ? Why was he sacked ?

    We all know about CSIR and what it does. We do not need an introduction to it from Shiva . Yes there have been problems, bt which orgabnisation does not have problems. We are not under the euphoria that Shiva is a perfect persona and all he says is truth.

    Has SA taken copyright permissions for all the copyright contents from diffrent media he has posted on his site. If this is done by an ordinary mortal he would have been hounded by US copyright industry. How can he scoop big time on copyright law like this and get away? Is it that he has scant respect for law?

    I don't think so. Probbaly Nature is sending him a notice on Monday morning if he is not fast enough to take it off. Now by his speed of doing things as reported he might narrowly escape. But hope he is aware that already multiple screenshots of the page have been archived online by this time.

    I think that the people who are writing comments here are educated people working in the field of sciences in India. Everyone who works in India, knows about the sorry state of affairs in India, and yet they are supporting Dr. B from CSIR.
    Let us assume that Shiva is a fraudster and an evil guy, but still that does not give a clean chit to these people at CSIR.
    Prof. Abi, should paint a complete picture and not an incomplete one, where Shiva is portrayed as a villain and people at CSIR as wronged heroes.
    Prof. Abi, I would appreciate if you also expose some truths about the CSIR and IISC rather than focusing on just Shiva.

    Yes, I believe CSIR has started that by starting to chuck out people like Shiva Ayyadurai. Just imagine if people like Shiva could not be dismissed and would continue till retirement. I think the CSIR DG did a great job by chucking him out immediately.

    I don't understand why everybody says CSIR is in a sorry state. Is serving the poor and not being in media limelight a crime ?

    Vinod and Sridhar mystery unraveled:

    "Insider" started "The Shiva Ayyadurai Fan club blog". He is actually the insider of Smair Brahmachari's office. Insider and Vindo Scaria may be same; he is the most web savvy person in Brahmachari's team. He is hopping between blogs and commenting without any evidence in hand. Word of mouth cannot be considered as evidence.

    “Insider” in comment 21 already admitted that “Yes there have been problems”. How he know it if “Insider” is not an insider of DG-CSIR’s office? Investigation against Shiva and Brahmacahri will disclose everything.

    Vinod Scaria and Sridhar Sivasubbu's promotion in scientific ladder is due in next couple of years. They are working hard to please Samir Brahmacahri to get promotion. This job of blog writing is given to them by DG-CSIR itself to protect his image. They can get promotion just for being a blogger and they don’t need to do quality science. They are among most juniors in IGIB and cannot ignore order of "big boss". They are helpless. So, please don’t blame them.

    Real Shiva Ayyaduari fan club is probably FREEDOM OF SCIENCE blog http://freedomforscience.blogspot.com/

    Threatening people those who do not sit and up on his commands is an old habit of DG-CSIR. Why Brahmachari is trying to intimidate honest media like NY times and Star news, if he has nothing to hide? Other Indian media is already sold out to Brahmachari.

    Agreed Shiva is a fraud. He has cost the exchequer a few lakhs - chump change compared to thousands of crores at stake (possibly embezzled) if the CSIR is indeed going down the drain as Shiva claims.
    If Shiva is indeed a cheat why was he hired? Even a highly paid Indian executive makes far less than an American in an average job. Were there other kickbacks? What were the amounts involved? Who was benefitting? Why are there so many ad hominem attacks on Shiva? And why is the author of this blog continuously "unravelling" Shiva, a man of no consequence any more?

    Why is there is moral equivalence that people are claiming between VS and SB? Why should Abi criticize SB -- that is not the story here. I am sure Abi can run a story on SB independenlty, if he feels like.

    But I agree with Natarajan. The quality of Vinod's writing or his choice of incidents are rather trivial. Vinod is some wannabe scientist expecting VS to be grateful about their appointment is amazing.

  42. Ankur Kulkarni said...

    I think for most outsiders, this Shiva Ayyadurai episode is NOT one of a Shiva v/s CSIR or Shiva v/s Bramhachari kind. Us outsiders think of this as Shiva v/s Indian science establishment in general, since Shiva's criticism has been generic and may be applicable to a lot of other institutes.

    I am inclined to suspect that any Anonymous commenter who interprets Abi's (or anyone's) criticism of Shiva as being his support for Bramhachari is most likely, Shiva himself. Because in his mind, this battle is between him and Bramhachari only. Most others would see this conflict in the larger context of Indian science. For eg my gut feeling is Anonymous 18, saying things such as "Abi, do you support Brahmachari and his band." is Shiva. So is anonymous 20.

    Anonymous 20 is even more curious, since he has repeated the same post on nature. See http://network.nature.com/groups/natureindia/forum/topics/6105?page=2

    This desperation to defend Shiva and attack the Shiva's critics personally can come only from Shiva himself.

  47. CSIR United said...

    Anonymous 36, you have trivialised the issue by telling VS and SB are doing all this for promotion. This is probably too much (what else can you expect from people who are just after money and publicity). Given the kind of work they do, I do not think they would need to do this to just please their boss. Both of them have great papers under their belt and well known in their circles. I think the point they raised is relevant and explains in part why Shiva has suddenly exited the scene from India and now running this proxy war from US.

He finished off the his enemy number one the assoications and unions using then BJP's Murali manohar Joshi telling him that unions are communists and showed himself a RSS/BJP man by attending a RSS ceremony in Nagpur during 1999(he was honoured by RSS-Sudharsan). He swindled CSIR. Now he is one of the top rich amn in the country who was a monthly wage earner. People should understand what these people at IISC and CNRRao were doing to set right CSIR and his anti- indian activities. Then Dr. Ramasamy took over as incharge DGSIR.

    Nature takes out the blog entry of Sridhar and Scaria. The Nature India article of Shiva requires log in. But interestingly Nature allows Shiva Ayyadurai to reproduce the same article on his website and also allow him to carry Nature Masthead. This shows a clear complicity of Nature India in this affair. This is reinforced from the fact that a person like SA with just one paper to his credit has been called a scientist in the Nature article. We scientists in India has discovered long back that we dont exisit for Nature India whatever be the number of papers and citations we hvae.What is behind this new found love of Nature to India?

    The part palyed by Nature seems to be a piece of the greater gameplan to discredit Indian science. The latest Thomson Report shows that India is catching up with the western world fast. Rate of growth also is impressive and is clear from the graph plotted by them. Therefore the conventional establishment of US administration which were dormant after the colad war years has now a new cause of worry. They have activated their cohort CIA to plant people who could discredit Indian science. nature India is just a small pawn. You may see that it is operated by kids who have no real journalistic experience to their credit. The real shot is called from elswhere. Look at who has written on Shiva episode after it died down in India. New York Times, Nature and now Nature India publishes Shiva to keep a simple case of a misfit as a controversy. All posts which favors Shiva as pointed out above is coming from US after India sleeps. So Nature is just a part of the plan by the same perpetrators. Shiva fits into the scheme as a plant. Please note that Fulbright gives one year fellowship to someone with no real paper. He comes with a nationalistic hue and tries to raise a rebellion. All this show that Shiva is a plant. But only that CIA also got scooped by this man Shiva Ayyadurai. They wouldnt have thought that this chap is no naive and the bloggers in India would burst their carefully laid out plans. So Anon 59, Nature has no game plan, they are only pawns. In 1990's they brought in TRIPS to rein in developing country science. Indian scientists proved smart in that game. So there has to be a way to tame them. The more you see foreign journalist's interest in keeping such dead stories alive, you can very well understand the bigger gameplan. As America wakes up a little later, this blog will also be more active! Jai Hind

    Anonymos 60 I think you have run of of ideas to discuss. as stated by UnoCSIR, I think you are just diverting from the issue. The issue is FRAUD : the Shiva Ayyadurai Fraud and the real circumstances of his quick exit from India

    It could be easily understood that UnoCSIR has been formed by the sycophants of SAmir Brahmachari and CSIR dirty feudal system as they loot and exploit CSIR evil system. They get their due bread certainly. CSIR is nobody's property. It is the property Indian people. Instead, Samir himself open up a website itself with CSIR's money and infrastructure.

    Patriots and freedom lovers do not support the views expressed by UnoCSIR. please do not divert the discussion. it seems and ceratin that UnoCSIR is formed by the people from Samir's original lab. "Uno CSIR stands for a United CSIR. We strongly believe what CSIR stands for. The very cause of helping the people who have nobody else to help is what motivates us". As defined by Nehru CSIR means Council of Scientific and INDUSTRIAL Research. but whereever SAMIR goes he openly tells that he has changed CSIR into Council of Scientific and INNOVATIVE Research. Before talking like this and makinging mdifications in the aim of CSIR whether SAMIR has got the approval of Governing Body of CSIR. He thinks that he is above GB and above PM and CSIR is his private property. Those who work at CSIR presently accept the truth presented above. PM can take against SAMIR for working against the policy decisions of the parliament and the Govt. Certainly this will happen.

    Dear Anon 70 : UnoCSIR stands for United CSIR. We are not Brahmchri sycophants nor do we support Ayyadurai. we are not afficliated with any lab or institute.

    Scientists become politicians. Like politicians they use, work of CIA or KGB or RAW or ISI. scientists also take excuses on these organisations. Even it is the work of CIA, what about the CSIR system, can it prevent CIA to enter CSIR. Most of bureaucrats in India are fond of America and its money their children earning from there. Human rights violations by Americal was never condemned by Indian bureaucracy and the Indian Scientsits. why India's any of the rul(ed)ing party ever condemned whther it is Irag , Afghanistan or vietnam. Can I accuse ANON: 64 as KGB agent or Laden's agent. No it is not the case. Please understand ground realities. Set right the system in CSIR. Forget about Ayyaduarai. let us ask Samir to set right the CSIR system, let him revolution, to make a democratic and real sytem oriented towards a real S&T to see CSIR the god father of technologies to Indian industries. Long live CSIR with new openess. Introspection and retrospection.

    THe CIA twist by Anon 64 is plausible , if you can actually sit back and try connecting the dots. It is still a hypothesis, but quite plausible one. Hee are the reasons.

    1) The original HT article was written by an American Indian just back from America . Was it just sympathy to a fellow american that made her write this "exclusive" crap or was it a planned an executed activity ?

    2)It has been the NYT and Nature which took up the issue, even after Indian journalists killed him and showed him the door at the press meeting he organised. How come all of them are foreign ?

    3) Shiva is back in America. A quick exit which surprises me. Wha are the circumstances for his quick exit from India. He was fighting a case , and then by any reason, he should have been in India. Probbaly this clarifies on his intentions and ulterior motives.


    4) People who have interacted with him in his previous stint in Chennai reveals he was a shady character and his preoccupations were equally shady. Was he a spy ?

Blind sycopancy is symbol of treason; betrayal of country's ethics and ideology. CSIR admn itself can open up blogs and can ask you IGIB people be authorised to write like this. They could have done so, but same things may repeat as it is happened many in the system. Let us wait and see the developments in a month or two. in 1996,Mashelkar was doing the mudsling exercise on CSIR scientists/Associations/unions using a delhi based Journalist "PHILIPS" from Kerala. Now present samir could use IT development and his own slaves for the job. This was known even to present Hon'ble minister Kabil sibal who was fighting case against mashelkar in those days. now george is with Soniaji, hence Samir takes the help of vinod..

    Here is one of the comments that was removed from Freedom for science (Blog supporting Shiva):

    The original blog at freedom for Science called for comments and support from Dr. Swapan Kumar Das. Here is what Dr. Das has to say on the Nature India episode as it appears in http://shiva-ayyadurai.blogspot.com/:

    Now that the entire Ayyadurai Expose and V Patel commentary in nature Network has suddenly disappeared, it raises some interesting questions on the stand of Nature on this.

    1) Is Nature India Editor hand-in glove with Shiva Ayyadurai and promoting this entire scam ? What is the incentive and what is the game-plan ?

    2) Why is Nature India giving so much coverage and promotion, and selectively blacking out "real" facts from public. Is this what Nature India calls "professionalism" or "journalism" ?

    3) What are the conditions in which an unsubstantiated and personal version of the story find its way to the Nature India website, and why are commentaries who tell the other side of the story summarily rejected ?
    4)What is Nature Correspondent Jayaraman's stand on the Shiva Ayyadurai episode ? Now that Jayaraman has little words to write on anything significant in Indian Science, probably he should give way for somebody younger.

    It seems that the whole plan of asking Dr. Swapan Kumar Das for support has back fired for Shiva.

    For once CSIR and Govt of India should sue Nature India and Shiva for their one sided story. They might have good case on their side. I wish Shiva were still in India for such a case.

    Dear Ann 59 and 114 and “insider” of Shiva Ayyadurai Fan club,
    Nature can remove any bog or comments from their website based on their company rules. Nature is the most reputed international journal and we all should respect it. So, I have nothing to say against Nature and his honest correspondents.

    I asked this question to nature and reply was as follows:

    From: Peplow, Mark

    Dear Professor Das, thanks for your note. A variety of comments have been deleted from this thread after other readers pointed out that they contained accusations about other individuals which contravened our terms and conditions of posting, including personal accusations.

    Dear Dr.Das,
    I also noticed it was removed by the moderator. It is entirely a decision by editors in London. I suppose you can always send another comment omitting anything objectionable in your first version. Regards, Jayaraman.

    Dr. Das,
    Thanks for sharing the mails with us. As a company Nature is within its right to remove comments from its blog sites. However why should Nature remove only selective comments and make the story appear one sided. By selective removal of comments Nature has reveled that it has hidden agenda in shaping public opinion to Indian Science.

  155. Shiva Ayyadurai fan Club said...

    Thats eexactly the point, Swapan. Nature and Nature India is making a story. A one-sided version of the story. Nature India editor should resign taking moral responsibility of the fiasco if she is not part of the gameplan. We Indians need to know hwat heppened behind the scenes and who is behind it. It cannot be just poor Shiva.

    I have just posted at the Shiva Ayyadurai fan Club on the gag on "free" sppech at the "Freedom of Science" Blog, the mouthpiece of the Shiva Ayyadurai team. It is not surprising that the posts were removed as it were against Nature India and Nature India Editor who have been supporting Ayyadurai really hard, even when all the other journos left him.

    But anyway it proves the "Freedom of Science" is a farce and stands to promote a one-sided view , also read "Their" version of the story. Good job guys !!

    Ankur, have you seen this one ? The Shiva Ayyadurai Fan Club has just unearthed another major SA fraud. this time it is his graduate student webpage claiming himself a faculty.

    I believe this is another major fraud after the previous one by SA on the Nature India commentary. Good going Shiva

  164. Ankur Kulkarni said...

    Yes. The CSIR-TECH report too is so silly. There is no reason to take him seriously on the basis of that. He comes across as one of those NRIs/ABCDs with a enlarged self-image, over-simplified and shallow manner of thinking, a narrow, selfish view of the world and dubious sincerity and moral clarity. I pity Brahmachari for having hired such a person.

  165. Insider said...

    My votes are with you Uno

  166. Insider said...

    and with you, Ankur

  167. Insider said...

    I have been saying this Ankur, for quite some time now, that SA is a creation of International media. Read HT, Nature, Nature India and NYT. The real story is something very different. I have been in touch with a number of CSIR scientists in my capacity as a journo. I have been in his press meeting where he was badly trashed. One colleague even called him a LIAR.

    I see vested interests in the story Nature India has published, and I should say Nature India editor has erred on her part in this episode(I know her for sometime now). I wish she would come out in public apologising for this huge mistake (unless she herself has been knowingly part of it).

  168. Insider said...

    and the evidence also points to Jayaraman, the Nature correspondent for India. Being an Indian, I feel ashamed of him. You do not need statistics to show that he almost always paints Indian scientists in a bad shade. He never covers any important discovery by Indian scientists, nor use his skills to project great work done in India. he is nothing but an India basher, right here in India. hope you folks realise him.

  169. Ankur Kulkarni said...

    I agree that Nature India is not a credible source. I have not had previous experience with it, so I don't want to comment on whether it has any malicious design in maligning Indian science. In the same way, I don't want to think of the Shiva episode as a conspiracy against CSIR. There may be, just may be, some reason for the US pharma companies to plant him as a spy or as a virus to kill OSDD, but I have no knowledge in this regard to make such a guess.

    I think all parties here apart from CSIR itself are acting ruthlessly in their self-interest. Shiva is a small-time fraud who thrives on these kind of petty crimes and was looking the next chance to pick-pocket, when he managed to impress Brahmachari. Nature India seems tabloidish to me, looking only for some masala news. Foreign media (NYT, in particular) does not even strive to be objective about the world outside the US. They merely write stories that they like to read.
    CSIR on the other hand, and particularly Brahmachari has been very dignified in his response by not getting vocal at all. Some, like Pushpa Bharagava, in fact tried to humbly see some truth in whatever Shiva wrote.

    This kind of introspection and self-criticism is the burden of the intellectuals; it is not for the thugs or for the self-serving. That CSIR has carried this burden with forbearance shows CSIR in much better light than Shiva or Nature India. At the same time, it is good that someone CSIR finally spoke out and that too in a calm and civilised manner.

    Finally, congratulations to Abi and the Shiva Ayyadurai fan club for pursuing this issue with passion!

  170. Anonymous said...

    What a fantastic title, that Abi gave and how over the weekened, bloggers not only unravelled Shiva Ayyadurai, but also systematic ploy to discredit Indian science and its leaders. If you read carefully, bloggers have carefully watched the pattern of comments and established a systematic effort to tarnish the image of Indian science leaders. It has also brought out how recognition like Nobel is denied for Prof C N R Rao and Prof Swaminathan. The bloggers went behind the investigative journalists and found that all of them covering the story as of American origin. The CIA interest that was suggested was probably too outlandish. But Ankur now brings out a new facet of pharma industry involvemnt. Whatever it is one fail to undersdtand the motive of Nature in its highly unprofessional approach. An Annon had suggested that Nature India post is the result of having an inexperienced editor but Dr. Das'c comments show that Nature itself is backing it up. The true nature of Nature has been unravelled. The mail of Jayaraman shows how helpless he is. It is good that bloggers brought out this. Real investigative stuff!

    My fellow Indian scientists. This is indeed a deap conspiracy to discredit Indian Science. I challenge the Nobel Committee to ignore CNR Rao again. The Infosys Prize and the Bhatnagar Awards are much bigger anyway.

    And I request all of you to boycott Nature. No more shall your works cite any Nature article. No more shall any Indian submit any article to Nature. We must treat this evil organization with the true disdain it deserves.

    Abi, I exhort you to spread this patriotic word through this fine blog of yours. May CSIR rise and beat the Brookhavens and the CERNs of the world.

    Down Down Pakistan and ISI as well. They are colluding with CIA here...

    Let us return to the glory days when India was the envy of the world. We gave the world zero, the vedas. Our kings had incredible weapons and flying chariots. I exhort all of you to strive towards recreating those days when India was the envy of the world!

    Ankur kulkarni,
    I am not sure what made you comment that "Brahmachari has been very dignified in his response by not getting vocal at all". Threatening NY times reporter and ordering Star news reporter to stop camera seems dignified to you? He committed several crimes; "SA case" is just an example which got lot of media. "Insider" in comment 21 already admitted the "problem", He is from DG of CSIR' office.

    I am not sure how long we Indian's have to tolerate this kind of corrupt people. Encouragement from people like you is the reason that in India in all section of life starting from political, legislative and academic sector corruption is ubiquitous. We should come out of this general norm for our better future.

    It is good that Nature India ousted all propaganda machines hosted in their site starting from Vinod Scaria, Sredhar Sivasubbu' and Vpatel. Instead of being busy in doing good science CSIR scientist like VS and SS is using internet facility purchased from public/government money to support a corrupt leader.
    Nature India site is for creative and constructive discussion not for support of any dictator like SKB or an idiot like Shiva. Jayraman is absolutely fair individual. I believe only in one thing “Satyameba Jayatay” or “Truth Prevails”. When Scientist’s from CCMB (CSIR) are publishing good science in Nature, Nature Genetics and Science and trying to establish credibility of “Indian Science” the DG-CISR is inviting trouble for Indian science by his feudal attitude. We need to be very tough skinned to tolerate such insanity.

  174. PB said...

    This is also a conspiracy by pharma companies who want to stifle Open Source Drug Discovery that will make India a drug superpower like the olden days of Ayurveda.
    We must cripple Nature by not referring to it or contributing to it anymore.
    We need scientist like Sri Murli Manohar Joshi who understands science being physicist himself and a fearless leader like Advaniji. Not Congress and Communists.

    Bharat Mata Ki Jai

  175. PB said...

    Just as the character of Mother Sita was upheld by the Agneepareeksha, our beloved DG will also come out unscathed. Ayyadurai is like the evil demon king Ravan who is unsuccessfully tried to capture Seeta Mother. I commend all the scientists who are fighting back like the Vanar Sena. We must be united now as the world is jealous of India's success. US and CIA sent Ayyadurai here to poach Indian talent for NASA, Los Alamos and etc. He was asked to get the cream of talent to the US because their education system does not train them to be great researchers. Almost 45% of NASA is from India. They are jealous of India and are offering their dirty dollars to make us greedy and sell the Motherland. We must fight and make our Mother India great. Let us all stand up for 1 minute in silence for the CSIR scientists who are glorifying this great nations.

    Bharat Mata Ki Jai!

  176. Ankur Kulkarni said...

    Considering the immaturity of the Star News report and how opportunistic and one-sided it sounded, I think it leaves the DG with very few options. I am guessing that something similar must have happened with NYT too. Both reports were one-sided and lousily researched.

    Think about it: when a reporter comes to the DG without an open mind and instead with a conclusion in mind and only an interest in some gossip, the DG is bound to be irritated. And if the reporter insists on putting his faith in a fraud and reporting a totally false story, the DG is perfectly right in threatening to complain to his boss. You have to remember that both reports were immature to the extent that reporter did not even seem capable of making sense of the complexity involved in the case and see the DG's reaction in that light.

    The DG did not go about making an adverse media propaganda against Shiva, the way Shiva has done against the DG and CSIR, despite the fact that the DG is being wronged so deeply. Shiva looks cheap to me, and as I said, in comparison, by resisting the temptation to fall to Shiva's level, the DG seems very dignified.

  177. PB said...

    My friends. The rise of India is worrying other nations. We must use this opportunity to test our true limits. Just as the bomb gave us self respect under Vajpayeeji, we must realise that UPA govt is upto no good. We need a strong decisive BJP govt at the center. Modiji and Yediyurappaji are the leaders of tomorrow. Do not support these feudal Gandhi family sycophants who are ruining the Indian rise to power.

    Vajpayeeji had added "jai Vigyan" to "Jai Jawan Jai kisan.." and made India a nuclear superpower. Why should we allow traitors like Shiva who took US citizenship to control our science establishment? We have put spacecraft to moon. Let us now pioneer the first open source cure for AIDS! And yes, that great discovery will not be reported in Nature, but in the Indian Journal for Bio-Informatics. We must proudly say Infy-laureate and not Noble-laureate because grate scientists like SN Bose, CNR Rao and APJ Kalam have been ignored by the Noble prize committees. Let us be proud of our motherland. Congress is the opposite of Progress.

    Jai Hind!!

    Annon 179, this is no more a discussion on Shiva. His fraud has been unveiled. It is now a discussion on CIA or pharma conspiracy against Indian science leaders. Have you not seen what Annon 119 brought out:
    1. Everyone who has written in support of Shiva right from the HT journalist, NYT or Nature has a strong western connection.
    2. Shiva has exited India in a hurry not even bothering to follow up on his Court case filed in the India Judicial system.
    3. Shiva's Visa status is still unclear. Did he have permission to apply for work in India?
    4. Now Nature India and freedom for Science Blogs sites are selectively blocking comments. This is tailoring public opinion.
    5. There is a increasing feeling that Shiva was out to discredit Indian Science with US help.
    So there is a clear conspiracy behind this episode. Now the discussion is to dig the real nature of this conspiracy and the role of Nature in it. To what extent is Mark Peplow himslef is involved in this conspiracy? Please have a look at his reply (Dr. S K Das 153 above). He admits selective removal of blog but keeps Shiva's one sided story!

    Read the posts 123 and 70. There seem to be a crystal clear conspiracy against Brahmachari, to dislodge him as DG. These entries bring in PM into discussion. And states almost for sure that PM will show Brahmachari the door. (remember Freud?) Couple this with the much publicised letter written by Shiva Ayyadurai to PM. The aim is to dislodge Brahmachari from DG's seat. And see the western interest. Shiva writes a letter to PM, people with American background rachet up, Shiva comes on blogs and create a publicity campaign, leaves India and creates a website to broadcast from US. Create a controversy where non exist, blow it up in the media! Then adorn the mantle of saviour of CSIR!! To this interesting well planned and executed events, throw Nature's effort to resurrect a dead controversy, selctively direct public opinion and the pharma industry interest in getting Brahmachari out. Elementary folks! This is textbook stuff, the good old game they used to play.

Tagore, Sarojini naidu, CV Raman, the greatmen of india lead a humble life in India like any other average indian but brought laurels to mother india and world science, they do not know the cutthroatpolitics.They gave everything what they had to the world. What about CNR Rao and others. Now our blood connection venkataraman Ramakrishnan got it. Is there any theory or equation or new innovations behind CNRR. When he is the DIrector of IISC, with IISC money he constructed palace for him , the researchers made a dharana and open protests at IISc campus. He produced bundles of bureaucrats from sycophants lobby to man and spoil Indian R&D institutions.Jingoism will fail. What is the name of Director, CSMCRI-- Kusbit---Ghosh, Bhavanagar. The persons writing comments in this blog on behalf of DG CSIR are babies to CSIR along with Samir; they do not know the history and problems in CSIR. You people will beat the chest for rulers. in your carer you can be a blacksheep or traitor, but you can not become a fullpledged man or a Hero. SATYAVEDA JAYATHE. RA Mashelkar is corrupt person aho swindled CSIR and so the Relainace company have taken him as alliance partner. making Noise and shouting will not solve the problem. CSIR system to be corrected. CSIR further lose its minumum creditiblity it is earning by hard work of some good scientists and technologists by idiote UNO CSIR and Ankur and finally ABi. There are court cases pending against RA Mashelkar in Delhi courts for his abuse powers while he was so called CEO of CSIR. RA-Maslkr claimed himself as CEO of CSIR. He Embraced SUdarshan (RSS) at Nagpur in Public ceremony during 1999. Fotos are in the front page "THE HINDU' daily news paper. His much claimed SARAS ..? poor man india thousands of crores on this. Any legal action these faulters ..? That is CSIR and it culture. It should be changed. Now CSIR made appointments to 12 of its labs. Let us know, how many Bangalis have been appointed as Directors ?. Let these idiots get the details bring out in this blog. Other wise I will bring their names. The present CSIR system is created by Samir, but it was further aggreavated by Mashelkkar and company. It is not the Samir has created it. But instead of changing the system or setting right h e adds fuel to already burning palace- the CSIR. You people, selfish odds will have request your samir to stop this nonsense. Maselakr did not like Samir and mashelkar is telling his friends at IIT, Delhi that " DWARF IS DROWNING".

OK if you doubt his (SA) integrity, it is O.K. We only or the system only hired him 9 No.1- Adhocism). Now he was sent out ok. Do we (CSIR) deserve introspection of past and the present or not?. CSIR performance should be compared with other R&D organisations. Whether achievements communsurate to salary paid had been achieved in terms of Technologies or world class Research publications with new theories, innovations and what not of Science & Engg . The CSIR system became rotten system during its 60 years of existence. The careers of Very good scientists had been butchered by victimisation. Fraudulent Directors were allowed to flourish and accumulate wealth by means of appointments, contracts, purchases etc. They were protected by the system. IF the DIrector praises the DG or shares the booty with him he will be encouraged by the system proceed further. But those who complains of looting and robbery by Directors were punished and sent out from the system. There is no accountability for scientist taking projects from Govt agencies, CSIR also will not bother those men. There is foot licking promotion (dptl) system and so on. Prof.Ankur Kulkarni!, your threatening poster is reminding me that of RA Mashelkar. The episode (SA-SAMIR-CSIR) should be an eye opener to set right the system. First transfer all the Admn people who were there for more than 3 years at CSIR Hqrs. It is followed in Scientific and Technical level. With good parliamentarians and human right activists (Bhusan, and eminent people like Prof.MM.Sharma, Prof Chopra, and not CNRR, the system to be reviewed and corrected. New system is to be evalued and to be followed. Written by : ANON: 105 only. I appreciate the threatening postures of Prof.Dr.Anil kulkarni. ??

    This is a Congress conspiracy by Sonia Gandhi to divert attention from Bofors, Bhopal and Ayodhya. We must not let these Italians interfere with our CSIR.

    USA is dependent on Indian talent like Iraqi oil. Hence it is trying to induce our talent to come to NASA. Not just NASA but 22.5% of MIT and 18.2% of Berkeley is Indian. Carnegie Mellon University says that only Indians rejected by IIT go to top US Univs. Look at NR Narayana Murthys son who went to Cornell after not clearing JEE. Also, Prometric, the creator of GRE and TOEFL purposely screwed up new CAT to lure our talent to Harvard and other B Schools and undermine the IIMs which are far harder to enter.

    CSIR faces threat from these sellouts like Ayyadurai who is like Ravana. He sends golden deer to lure Seeta Mata from her safe abode.

    It has been proven by NIH that Ayurveda is far more efficacious than standard allopathy, and Vedic mathematics follows the most sophisticated algorithms possible.

    Panini the ancient sage had written a sutra that is now known as Einsteins relativity theory. We have been ruined by Mughal and British invasion.

    I am new entrant to this debate. I have gone thro' debates and comments. What I find is not to pertinent to the point. We have to analysis the consequence on both sides.
    Dr.Shiva ayyaduarai is wrong when he published something about his former employor DG CSIR. He has complained to PM and Minister . It is alright. He has to wait for the disposals from PM and minister for his complaints. Then he approach the court. This is the set up at CSIR. Everybody knows, he will not get justice and covere ups only we expect from the higher places. It is the CSIR. If he could cop up with these master slaves, you can be there as their boss,otherwise he can be there in boston as AMerican.
    What about our Prof.Samir Braumachari, Director General of Scientific and Industrial Research (DGSIR) CSIR . He is a very silly personality and he used pull down safety clothings of his enemies or rivals in the open place when he gets a chance.
    One year back he visited one CSIR laboratory where one of his IISC senior colleague was working as the Director of that Institute. Samir did not like him and wanted to boss over him by showing authority. Somebody from that lab had sent anonymous pettitions with forged signature of 13-14 persons from the labs against the Director to DGSIR alleging that the DIrector has a daughter thro' his illegal wife etc etc . Samir brought that letter to that lab and asked all persons whose signs found in that letter to come to Guest house. There were 50 people in the guest house. He asked one of the persons to read the letter loudly in the presence of that Director. Then he asked them to verify their signature in that letter. All the persons there denied having signed such letter. They started begging the DG to ask the DIrector not to take any action or vindicative action. The Director, old man, was about to weep. He was brought up in a very disciplined family and he was "SHISYA" of Prof.CN.RAo and has his blessings. Samir hurted both sides and humiliated both the sides . He knew very well that there is no truth in the particular allegation against the Director. He also knew that it is a forged document and that the scientists who alleged to have forged their signatures are also innocent people. Then why he made such a drama? waht is motive or his actios were motiveless?. He taken nengeance against the old amn who is about 10 years junior to by age and position at IISC. It is the work of vigilance (CSIR) people. Everything should be handled in a confidential way by proper authority and means. An academically top scientist like SAMIR should not .....have . The director of lab, it is learnt, left and rejoined in IISC back as it professor. truths can be verified by contacting CVO, CSIR
