Some readers asked if the video of yesterday's talk by Prof. Venki Ramakrishnan will be available online. Frankly, I don't know. But I do know that there were video cameras, and that the video feed was sent to the smaller halls in the J.N. Tata Auditorium. (See this post by Shencottah who watched the talk from one of those halls).
Trust me, listening to Venki is a far better experience than getting his views filtered through our media (or even blogs, if I may say so myself).

Here's a sample of the newspaper headlines this morning:
T.A. Johnson in Indian Express: ‘Don’t pursue science to win a Nobel’.
Venkataraman Ramakrishnan won the Nobel prize in Chemistry in 2009 but decades ago he failed to clear entrance tests for both the IITs and a reputed medical college.
