One thought

  1. Dr A M Rajput is a great scholar. I met him in Birmingham in the years 1969-71 when he was a professor and I was a student.

    I hope one day in the not too distant future our paths cross once again.

    For me, it would be a dream come true to see him again.

    With respects and best wishes for a great man
