Even when that person entered the Glorious Abode on 19 March 2008, few TV channels remembered him with gratitude. Even Science Fiction buffs who read his novels avidly must have failed to notice the demise of a great Scientific Prophet—Sir Arthur C. Clarke who predicted not only communication through Geo-stationary satellites, but also advances in computer technology. </span>|
