AutarSinghPaintal, an icon of post-war cardio-pulmonary physiology, died on December 21, 2004 in Delhi at age 79 years.
Born in Mogok, Burma (now Myanmar), Paintals scholastic career was meritorious as a medical student and later, a postgraduate student in physiology at the King Georges Medical College, Lucknow, India.
In 1953 Paintal returned to India where as head of the VP Chest Institute, and later of the Council of MedicalResearch, he tirelessly promoted physiological research, this writer being one of many who were inspired by his scientific enthusiasm.
Incensed by an address given by Paintal at Calcutta University in which he had called upon students to exercise intellectual independence and not to depend on external aid for the development of their university, Dean apparently told Paintal at a tea party that his words would prove to be bad for him personally.
Paintal used to lament the fact that, as a nation, we were not organised to do good applied work.
Paintal sought the actual dates of submission of the papers and established that the means were illegitimate.
