"A scientist has to be curious to be young," says Professor Jayant Narlikar in this week's episode of Walk The Talk at the Inter University Centre for Astronomy & Astrophysics in Pune which he helped establish. A modest Prof Narlikar claims that being the youngest Padma Bhushan awardee was a pat on his back from the nation. He says that astronomers since the time of Galileo have face societal resistance and funding crisis. He ridicules the current society's extreme belief in astrology and can't explain how and why it is confused with astronomy. He says astrology is a borrowed science from the Greeks. He explains how the Big Bang Theory needs to be questioned and deserves an alternate theory like the Narlikar-Hoyle theory which fills in the several loopholes in the Big Bang Theory.
