Sujay Rao Mandavilli was born in India on the 18th of November, 1969, and is the son of an IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) Professor. He is the great great grand son of Hindu philosopher and reformer late Diwan Bahadur J. Venkatanarayana Naidu. (Refer Wikipedia) Sujay has been fascinated with science from an early age and built his first telescope at the age of eleven. He has been interested in the Aryan problem since the 1990’s. He is committed to the healthy growth of science in India and elsewhere. He has worked in different technology firms for twenty years including as a Senior Consultant for IBM for Six years and has executed assignments for different clients across the world in the field of Governance, Risk, Compliance, Process Improvement and Information Security, and in this connection, has travelled to or worked in fourteen different countries.
At age 48, he quit the technology sector completely to focus on fighting dogmas, religious fascism, obscurantism and ideological constructs of all kinds and bring about a scientific and an intellectual awakening in developing counties like India using his own unique methods and approaches, with the hope that this will be a role model for other developing countries as well. He is interested in the ‘Globalization of Science’ i.e. how intellectual multi-polarity can be beneficial to science itself. He is also interested in the ‘Sociology of Science’ i.e. how a proper teaching of science can lead to Social and Intellectual revolutions in regions where such revolutions are long overdue and greatly increase scientific output. He strongly believes that Scientific and Intellectual revolutions are long overdue in developing countries several decades after the end of colonialism and is trying to lay the foundations for such revolutions in his own unique way.
He is the Founder-Director of the Institute for the Study of the Globalisation of Science (Registered as the Globalisation of Science Trust) which is has already started empanelling a group of researchers and scientists to plan its next course of action.
