Oneday in the night at around 9 pm my mobile started ringing. I found that it was a call from Bhuvnesh Goyal, from IIT, Kanpur. He told me that this year in their in house festival TAKNEEK 2010, a scientoon competition has been organized in IIT, Kanpur. He further asked me that can I deliver a lecture on Scientoons and Scientoonics in IIT, Kanpur so that student can learn how to develop scientoons and would be in a better way to participate in the function. It was a very good news for me. I immediately said yes and it was decided that on September 22, 2010 at 8.30 PM my lecture will be held there. Unfortunately sue to sudden fever caused to my two sons, I decided not to visit IIT Kanpur so the nest date fixed was September 25, 2010. I was a bit scared also as court verdict on Ayodhya might cause some problem. Anyway, when it was announced that decision will be delivered on September 28, 2010, I felt relaxed and decided to go IIT. IT was around 9 AM on Saturday which is holiday for me I started my journey from Lucknow to Kanpur.

One day, I got a call from a young girl Shruti who was from TATA Indicom (CDMA) office, Lucknow. She asked me that can I deliver a lecture on the eve of World Environment Day i.e. June 4, 2010 to staff of her office. I became very happy to know that companies like Tata Indicom are also concerned with Global Warming and they want to make their employees aware about the various facts and what can be done to save our planet earth. I immediately said yes and on June 4, 2010 I reached to Tata Indicom office in the evening. It was my first visit to any Tata telecom organization. I was a bit excited also to meet the persons working there and being a scientist, I was thinking that how best I can make my lecture very simple, yet effective and though provoking so that every one can understand this vital and very crucial issue which is affecting each one of us on this earth. I was very warmly received by senior members of the Tata Indicom office at Meerabai Marg in Lucknow.

The sangam city Allahabad is always a magnet for the millions of Hindus who visit sangam. I got a call from Dr Neeraj, a very soft spoken and humble person (he should have been a resident of Lucknow, which is called the city of tehzeeb and soft language). Dr Neeraj said that NASI is organizing  a 15 days training program for the children from UP, Bihar and MP and he wanted me to be the chief guest of the valedictory function and also to deliver a lecture on “Climate Change and Global Warming: What are  the challenges ahead”. It was June 13, 2010 and the day being Sunday so I immediately said yes.

I took a taxi and started for Allahabad, on my way I stayed in Rae Bareli, my home town where I grew, studied and spent a major part of my life. Secondly, though it is a small city but it gave me name, fame, recognition and what I am today. I met my mother after a long time and all other my family members who are staying there. Rae Bareli being a small city looks more calm, peaceful and a place free from all problems which a metro city has. I can go to any place in a rickshaw.
