The University of Delhi is a composed of nearly 80 colleges and serves hundreds of thousands of students. My talk was coordinated to coincide with India’s national science day that is celebrated on the birthdate of Nobel Laureate Dr. C.V. Raman.
Over 300 students, faculty, and scientists attended, and had many great comments and questions.
After a traditional lunch with the kebabs that Delhi is known for, we visited the Red Fort with massive walls of Proterozoic Vindhyan red sandstone. The Red Fort was built by Shah Jahan, who also built the Taj Mahal.
Another city attraction is Raj Ghat – Mahatma Ghandi’s cremation site.
India has been fantastic and I almost hate to see my time here end. Every place I have visited I have been warmly welcomed and treated so graciously. Geoscience brings us together from many different places and cultures.
