In my view Prof. R L Kashyap deserved the award much earlier.
But, better late than never!
Prof. R L Kashyap has studied Vedas like a true Professor and interpreted it like no one else has done till now. Like an Engineer.
A retired Professor of Electrical Engineering of Purdue University, USA, Professor makes Vedas a delight to know about and understand, and importantly realize what a national treasure it is.
Prof. Kashyap was kind enough to make sure he visited our place from Bengaluru and took an afternoon nap before leaving for Bengaluru way back in 2011.
