Interview with the Other Bharat Ratna

NDTV has a Walk the Talk interview of Prof. C.N.R. Rao. Shekhar Gupta, the interviewer, may appear a bit of a bumbler on science-related matters, but he's sharp at other times -- watch his glee when he probes Prof. Rao for his views on the pseudoscience of the M.M. Joshi kind!

There are lots of things in there, here are a few to watch for: his work on high Tc superconductors, his appreciation of Neville Mott, and his description of science as a kind of healthy virus.

    Nice interview! I am always very impressed by his energy and enthusiasm for science, especially at his age.
