About his research interests:

“My research revolves around the question how science correlates to mankind and how the laws of science can play a vital role in human life. My goal is to interpret the importance of science in our daily lives.”

 

On the challenges of a scientist’s life:

“It wasn’t easy to get this far. In fact, it was a day and night struggle. In my country, Nepal, the scientific development is just starting and I want to be among those who contribute to this cause. As a child I was inspired by the great Albert Einstein. To start where others quit is what I learned from him. In the end it is all about perseverance.”

 

On what he does outside of the lab:

“I published my first book (“The Way to Science and Research, Vol. 1”) in 2012 and it became very successful in Nepal. Recently I have been working on a second book which will be called “What the World thinks”. In this book I want to collect the ideas of people from all around the world to find the best ways of motivating ourselves. It will be a great platform for the exchange of ideas, I think.”

 

On his expectations about the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting:

“The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is the best platform for me to collect and exchange ideas and to have interesting discussions with different young scientists from around the globe, the Nobel Laureates and all the other participants.”

 

Prakash Bajgain will attend the 64th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on Physiology or Medicine.

    Dear Sir,

    What do you consider “the laws of science“?
    Could you please recommend a public platform where “the laws of science” have been (or still could be) enunciated, and (possibly) legislated ?

    > The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is the best platform for me to collect and exchange ideas and to have interesting discussions with different young scientists from around the globe, the Nobel Laureates and all the other participants.

    Could you please recommend a public platform to collect and exchange ideas and to have interesting discussions with different scientists (regardless of age, place of residence, endowments, or affiliations) for those who are not privileged to attend the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (be it the 64th, or any other) in person?

    Thanks,

    Frank Wappler

    Dear Mr. Wappler, unfortunately I can’t answer your first question as this was a statement expressed by the young gentleman Mr. Bajgain. Perhaps he will clarify his remark if he reads your comment.

    Concerning your second question about recommending a public platform for discussion and exchange: you might want to take a look down. Because you are standing (well, surfing) on the answer :-)

      I’m looking forward to that. (No particular rush, of course …)

      And thanks again for the opportunity to express in public my questions regarding Mr. Bajgain’s remark (i.e. specifically his using the phrase “laws of science“). Perhaps there are other readers who encountered or even used that Phrase, too, and who thereby get a chance to express at least their own answers to my questions; independent of (and perhaps even sooner than) Mr. Bajgain.

      > […] about recommending a public platform for discussion and exchange: you might want to take a look down. Because you are standing (well, surfing) on the answer :-)

      Indeed, I thought so, thanks again. (Is that the best recommendation you’ve got? … ;)

      As a platform for scientific discourse this one would of course benefit greatly from

      – supporting $latex latex$ rendering of mathematical symbols, and

      – a comment preview (not least to check the rendering of incidental $latex latex$ expressions).

      p.s.
      Please take no offence by my particular style of having saluted you above, being somewhat inconsistent with your’s referring to me (as “ Dear Mr. Wappler“). I believe that my choice is consistent with the practice of expressing recognition by citing in scientific discourse.

    Mr. Bajgain are you seriously calling this book “The Way to Science and Research, Vol. 1” your research book.?? There is nothing in this book than some go-ogled facts and you using the name to increase your reputation in this huge conference. This is a real shame.

    As I know the selection process of the meeting is tough enough and each meeting is dedicated to specific subject where the top class young researchers on that specific subject are only eligible to apply. Mr. Prakash Bajgain, who is fake person and no possible ways related to medicine and physiology is representing Nepal for 64th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting dedicated to medicine and physiology. The dedication of each Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting to a specific discipline makes no sense if selection of a student from a completely different discipline, by prior an acknowledgement or by ignorance (no matter what it is) is taken with ease. This issue is sure to impede the height of Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings globally and if not, sure in Nepal.

      Mr. Prakash Bajgain has indeed been selected for participation in the upcoming Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, and he has passed the evaluation procees. We consider him a worthy participant, as we do with all others that have been invited.
      The Lindau Meetings follow an interdiciplinary approach, and they are open to a wide variety of science-based opinions.
      However, we do not supprt derogative comments ad personam. This discussion will be closed for further comments.
