Can we learn to respect?

Why do we always fail to respect true geniuses ?

A matriculation topper from Bihar Board in 1961, he went to University of California, Berkley in 1963 to study Mathematics, got PhD in 1969, and joined NASA as an Associate Scientist Professor.  He is Vashistha Narayan Singh the great scholar.

[But many don’t know about this extraordinary man because In India, Mathematician live a covert life and are ultimately forgotten because of the ignorance of the Government and the media.
He is neither a celebrity nor a Cricketer !! He is just a poor Ignored Indian Genius who challenged all western Mathematician]
