Dr. Vashishtha Narayan Singh: Indian John Nash!

I guess, very few of us know about this great Indian mathematician
who did his PhD from University of California but now mentally
deceased and staying in a small village in Bihar.
He is Dr. Vashishtha Narayan Singh. Please read about him
at Here .

I really appreciate your effort in bringing this person to light but

Thanks for the comments. There is nothing wrong in comparison. I just compared because Nash is well known already. If I say, next Aryabhatta, message will not go in proper form. So it was more of way of communication than running behind west glory!!

I just donated 100 USD from the bhojpuria site.

This is the wiki of VN Singh's professor.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_L._Kelley

Someone should write something about VN Singh in that page and have link to his own wiki page, which doesn't exist now.

Hi Hari,
First of all thanks for starting a poll.
I tried to goolge Singh sir but I haven't found much information on him.
I really wanted to read more on him...
It is really shame for India, for keeping his achievement and his life in dark.

I think the comparison with John Nash is only relevant bcz of the Schizophrenia and nothing else should be...
John Nash got his Nobel memorial on Economics at the age of 67 (1994).. no records of getting Nobel prize of Dr. Vashishth Narayan (with all due reapect)till date (I believe he is aged than 67)but I will be more than happy if he gets one.
J.Nash was an economist also Dr. Narayan Singh is not.
the moralof my say is no scientist should be compared with other .. each one is different from the other on their view and perspective and this kinds of comparisons are irritating bcz scientists don't have religion , country or surname..the only religion of a scientist is science the only country for him is his working place his laboratory and the only surname he holds is Scientist
first respect him , give him chance to work , give him a stage to say ... stop doing these fuss...
