Dear Mr Rao,
I don’t know from where you got the idea that I am degrading somebody.
When an “activist” says that the eminent research publications such as Nature, Scientific American etc have been bought over by Monsanto, then we need to take that assertion with lots of salt.
Moreover, I did not criticize her private life, which I know nothing about. I used the word “apparently” if you did not notice, when I said how much she charges for “fighting” for farmers.
Sure, you may have your own opinion, but I never imposed my opinion about Dr Vandana Shiva since I have none.
I just highlighted some articles and I am inviting you again to have your own opinions based on facts.
Moreover, I find it disturbing to note that Dr Vandana Shiva has billed herself as India’s “leading” physicist before she became an activist. But as the articles says that and apparently she agrees since she has not objected to that fact, that nobody can find any reference about where she worked as a "physicist, let alone a “India’s leading” one.
If anybody is fighting for rights of others, they should be as truthful as possible. A half truth is a full lie.
I am closing down this conversation and this is my last post on this topic since somebody seems to be so much hurt even by facts.
For your information, I am a post graduate engineer from a leading institute and have 15 international engineering and scientific patents to my name.
This information is just to highlight that I know a thing or two about research and not to brag about me.
