Biography of Vikram Sarabhai

N Gopal Raj reviews Vikram Sarabhai: a life of Amrita Shah in the Hindu today. The review touches upon Sarabhai‘s views on nuclear weapons research (no), and the politics associated with the  separation of  ISRO from DAE (which, in retrospect, might be a good thing that happened to ISRO). However, from the review, it is not clear if the book also discusses the science of Sarabhai, as much as it discusses him; if it does, it would certainly be a book worth buying.

By the way,  the December 2001 issue of Resonance paid tributes to Sarabhai, with articles by U R Rao, Kasturirangan, and Mrinalini Sarabhai. The issue also carried a reflection by Sarabhai on the sources of man’s knowledge.

Have fun!
