A comment from my timeline

Actually my studies are sort of coming to an end. About ten years ago, I retired early to understand some thing about poverty and development. I have (or imagine that I have) some hints and am beginning to feel that, given human nature, it will never go away. I have been repeating myself without getting any further. May be time to go back to mathematics. Rao gave me a cap once with the message "Don't follow me; I am lost too."

Whose comment was that? What is the story behind it?

Just my comment about my progress in a thread on Facebook.

Ah, I see. The cryptic comment by 'Rao' piqued my curiosity and wanted the entire story :)

Rao Nagisetty and I were classmates from 1954-56 in Intermediate, Vijayawada Layola College. Again we were together in TIFR from 1964. He left in !970 and I left in 1979 Around 1986 -88 I had job problems and was in USA. He got me a temporary position and saw me through a difficult period. He was always first in the class and still vain. I keep teasing him even thpough he is dear friend.
