Professor Daulat Singh Kothari: An Amalgam of Science and Spirituality

Hardev Singh Virk


Professor Daulat Singh (D.S.) Kothari was a household name in Indian education when I started my teaching career in Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jallandhar in July, 1963. My first contact was established with D.S. Kothari during a Summer School on History of Science, perhaps the first of its kind in India, in Sept. 1975 organised by Indian National Science Academy (INSA) in New Delhi under his patronage. He was impressed by my presentation “Cosmological Ideas in Science and Sikh Religion”. He was chairing this session and asked me to translate my book “Brahmand Di Rachna” into Hindi for wider circulation in India. Another fall out of this presentation was my nomination as Member of UGC (University Grants Commission) Panel on History of Science, even when I was a young Lecturer in Punjabi University, Patiala. All other members were Senior Professors of Indian universities.
