Physics in India: Unacceptable dishonesty

October 21, 2020

I just read a piece called Black hole and Indian scientists that appeared today in the newspaper The Indian Express, written by Naresh Dadhich and Ajit Kembhavi. It is fine as far as it explains the history of the idea and contributions of various Indian scientists, most notably Amal Kumar Raychaudhuri and Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar.

I read it once the way everyone reads such pieces – out of curiosity. After I finished reading, I was left puzzled. I went back and scanned through the piece again in case I had missed something. I did not.

The article makes no mention of Abhas Mitra who has made the most significant contribution to black hole science of anyone to date – and I mean in the whole world. He brought in essential physics that must be brought into the mathematical calisthenics of the black hole scientists before him, and showed that such mathematical objects cannot have any physical reality. For example, all stars have magnetic field. All star matter is electrically conducting. Therefore, the collapse of a star would involve electrodynamic forces that would oppose the very cause to which they are due (the collapse). There are other physics issues. On the whole, a black hole cannot form in reality. There are other researchers worldwide that have worked along these lines, and acknowledge Mitra to be a superior scientific mind than the likes of Stephen Hawking.

So, in connection with the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics, the name of Abhas Mitra should have hit the airwaves in India – first and foremost. In the reports that I have read in Indian media, his name is meticulously avoided.

The prize to Penrose has no basis whatsoever. No one has ever observed any black holes. The reports to the contrary are false.

These glowing praises for Penrose in the Indian media simply go to show that Indian physicists cannot think independently for themselves as does Mitra. Independently of sahibs, that is. For many years, as one bogus Nobel Prize in Physics after another is being rolled out, the Indian physicists are misinforming the Indian citizenry.

If the lives of Chandrasekhar and Raychaudhuri have shown anything, it is independent thinking. The Indian physicists – while emphasizing this quality in dead scientists – are suppressing the one living man among them that has this ability.

Another glowing report in the article:

Another momentous discovery was of the cosmic microwave background radiation at temperature of 2.7 Kelvin (about -270 degrees Centigrade), which was the greatest prediction of the big-bang theory of the universe. The universe had a singular beginning in a hot big-bang, and the observed microwave radiation is carrying that message and signature.

is a total falsehood. This result is a scientific fraud as many of us have shown in many ways. It has been shown to be false by direct observation and by thorough analysis of the experiments. To continue to spin such lies as scientific truth constitutes most despicable collective conduct on the part of a scientific community.

I don’t know the reason why the Indian physics community pointedly ignores the outstanding contributions of Abhas Mitra who is certainly the leading Indian physicist living today. The usual reason is that a dishonest and dishonorable scientific establishment is pissed off with someone and so excommunicates him. Abhas Mitra may have pissed off the Indian physics community by opposing their idol Stephen Hawking – a frou-frou mathematician and a pretty worthless physicist who was falsely heroized in life and falsely deified in death.
