New Delhi, Oct 15(UNI) The world today needs a scientist who is also a spiritualist and a thinker working for peace: a cross between Einstein and Gautam Buddha, according to wellknown information technologist Vijay Bhatkar.
Speaking at a function recently where he launched website devoted to the sayings of Osho, Dr Bhatkar who is Chairman of Dishnet and former Director of Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) said Osho wanted a Buddha who is an Einstein. Dr Bhatkar is a Padma Shri Awardee.
Padambhushan Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar, Director General of Council for Scientific and Industrial research (CSIR) said it was clear that man had not understood the human mind. ‘Because if we had, we would have also understood how the human mind could conceptualize the World Trade Centre attack where such a mighty structure could be brought down in a few minutes’. Understanding the human mind and creating a mind which was at peace with itself was a great challenge.
Commenting on the controversy wherein the New York-based Osho International Foundation has claimed it owns the copyright for all that Osho said during his lifetime, Dr Mashelkar asked: ‘Can something that Osho said be copyrighted at all? Can an individual form an institution or a foundation to have a right on these great messages both on the form as well as the content? It is quite clear that these messages are so universal, so crucial for this age that the rights truly are universal’.
