Thanks for the interesting detective work. He seems to have had a very distinguished career - one that is not that of a charlatan.
But how could somebody with such a distinguished record suddenly promote all these weird ideas? Is he becoming unbalanced? Is my information incorrect? If the attack on Hawking occurred as reported, that behavior is unprofessional at best.

Hi Norman, On a lark I Googled and found: http://www.igcar.ernet.in/igc2004/balbio.htm "His specializations include materials characterization, testing and evaluation using nondestructive evaluation methodologies, materials development and performance assessment and technology management. He has steered and participated in many national programmes of great significance namely DST project on Intelligent Processing of Materials, Characterization of Cultural Heritage, IAF programmes of ageing management, Dept. of Space and Dept. of Defence programmes. He has 33 years of experience, which has led to many first of its kind observations and discoveries in the field of materials characterization and applications. He is known for his contributions to KAMINI Reactor, hot cell facilities for examination and reprocessing of fuels and reactor technology particularly in the area of materials and manufacturing technologies.
