    Yesterday Prof U.R.Rao and today Prof. Yash Pal. Both are recipients of Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan. Both are scientists. One worked as Chairman UGC and the other worked as Chairman, ISRO. We lost to good and great scientists in a row. A big loss to the country. May their souls rest in peace.

    At TIFR and at the UGC Prof Yash Pal was famous and his services were much recognized and regarded. By his passing away India has lost a good academician. May his soul rest in peace.
