Meeting him at conferences was not possible as RCG did not travel much, particularly after his ‘formal’ retirement in 1995, around which period I had just entered into the field. Correspondence through e-mails was not possible either, as he does not use computers at all!.
Mathematical Review 26, (1963) p. 1142.
Whose outstanding doctoral dissertation got published as Geometry in Ancient and Medieval India, Motilal Banarsidass, Delhi, 1979.
By submitting my dissertation on ‘Trigonometry in Ancient and Medieval India’.
One of the greatest poets of all times, who through his immortal contributions enriched several branches of Sanskrit literature.
I was a bit surprised at his cool and spontaneous positive response, because I was expecting him to second my thought by saying: “yes, these things are difficult to find out ...”.

The data collected by RCG seems to be quite comprehensive. Name any topic in history of mathematics, RCG may be able to pull out a bundle (piled up in cartons) in no time and present a card giving the necessary information!.
Naturally, a few cards in these bundles would be decades-old and brittle, while others relatively new.
RCG told me (the author of the article) that he started his teaching career as a lecturer with a salary of around Rs. 250 per month and retired as professor with a salary of around Rs. 9000 per month.
To name a few: National Academy of Sciences (NASI), Association of Mathematics Teachers of India (AMTI), Astronomical Society of India, Calcutta Mathematical Society, Kerala Mathematical Association, Sree Sarada Educational Society.
