Raychaudhuri --- some correspondence regarding

Updated: In view of the comment of RS, I have removed email addresses.
While in general I agree with his observation, I do not think any one
would mind their mail being displayed when it is about paying respect
to the work of another scientist. It is like quoting from an article.
I do not see why any one would object.

Dear Dr. Buchert,

I enjoyed the seminar you presented at Lausanne last week, although i know
very little about the subject. I was pleasantly surprised to know that the
work of A. K. Raychaudhuri continues to be of use in modern research. You
may be interested (from a human interest angle) in the following:

I hope some of the articles are to your liking.

Dear college,

I am pleased to learn that you enjoyed the talk. Of course,
Raychaudhuri's equation is key to many research questions.
I actually saw some of these articles, and thank you for
sending me this site.

I'm a bit late commenting, but -- even if Dr Buchert is OK with his private emails being posted on the internet -- it is really not good form to post his unobfuscated email address, phone numbers, and mobile number as well. Unless you have his explicit permission.

Rahul: I have removed the email and
phone numbers. In any case all his contact info. is on the web. However I do not agree that this is private email. It is just about paying homage to a great piece of work.
