Prof. LS Shashidhara, a developmental biologist and geneticist in IISER-Pune, was invited to Bhopal by Eklavya for delivering a public science talk on May 13, 2017. The speech, titled as ‘What can a fruit fly tell us about what we are?’ centred on his extensive research work on the common fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. This was actually the first such address in a lecture series started by Eklavya in the memory of one of our oldest and dearest friends, the renowned science journalist Rex D’Rozario, who passed away in January, 2017. Prof. Shashidhara came to Eklavya on the morning of May 13 and interacted with around 30 children from several schools and NGOs in the city. While responding to the countless questions put forward by the children, the scientist and science populariser also left for them new topics to mull over in the future. During the main event that evening in the Rajiv Gandhi Auditorium of NITTTR Bhopal, one of Rex’s last editorial responsibilities, Eklavya’s high school science module The Story of Atomic Theory of Matter, was unveiled by his wife, the veteran educationist Alethea.
