As a young man he presented a paper on astrophysics that was publicly ridiculed by the eminent astrophysicist A. S. Eddington. However, this did not stop S. Chandrasekhar from becoming one of the giants of astrophysics and winning the Nobel Prize. This is the story of a true polymath whose interests ranged from interstellar galaxies and neuron stars to classical music and English literature. Recognised among the greated astrophysicists of the twentieth century, Chandrasekhar till his last day remained a true scientist, devoted to his research, his students, and to sharing his knowledge with the astrophysicist community. Dilip M. Salwi is a Delhi-based science writer. A winner of several national awards and fellowships for popularising science, he also writes science fiction and plays involving science and scientists.
