I was born on 9.9.1937 in Bombay. I studied in Don Bosco High School in Matunga up to the Tenth Standard and had to leave as my parents could not pay my fees. I joined New English High School in Dadar, which today does not exist. From there I did my Matriculation. I joined G.N. Khalsa College in Matunga. I joined in 1956 after doing my Intermediate Chemistry in the Second Class of Textile Chemistry in the V.J.T.I. I left India in 1957 by sea.
I celebrated my 23rd birthday in Germany. I was already 3 years at the University of Stuttgart, studying Chemistry under the guidance of great Professors, each worthy of a Noble Prize. I consider myself lucky to have such teachers.
I had to job at night to pay for my education and later for a family with a son who is today 56 years of age and undergoing treatment for Cancer.

The ships were sunk by the British, French and the Israelis into the Cand were slowly being removed to restore the connection to the East. Then came the Crisis in Czechoslovakia, followed by Poland, the Berlin Wall, Yugoslavia, the Cuba Crisis, pulling down of the Berlin Wall, Reunification of Germany followed by many previous East Europe joining the European Union.
