D.C.S.Raju & R.R.Rao-Flora of India 1 : 188-196,1993

Mss for entire Magnoliaceae sensu lato without illustrations was with Dr M.P.Nayar,Director as  D.C.S.Raju.Regional Botanist-CNH not only revised the families but also consulted A.C.Smith at Kew as Raju also studied Hippocrateaceae  to sort out type materials.Dedication of the volume itself is false and fictitious as Robert Kyd died on 26th May 1993,Roxburgh moved from Samalkota in Noveber 93 and lived at Sudder Street,built Kyd Monument and Residential cum Office building in 1795 now called as Roxburgh House without Herbarium for many years. D.C.S.Raju  however chaired the meeting on 31st May 1993 to observe  the Bicentenary of Robert Kyd after placing Garland of flowers at Kyd Monument and speaking on the occasion as per official programme.Another deviation of date due to ignorance of colleagues in search of green pastures!

D.C.S.Raju-Member of Panel Committe spoke about Keynote address by Prof T.N.Khoshoo,fotmer Secretary Dept of Environment and activities of Botanical Survey during 1983-88.

As Tata Consultancy Services and Indo American Seeds which are represented by Dr Khoshoo and Dr Singh with definite strategies like East India Company Garden and Botanical Survey of colonial past have used human resources  properly  for land-use.When Dr Khoshho could not get 35 photographs of less-known very useful plants from any Government agency D.C.S.Raju came to his rescue with slides including one of Solanum viarum Dunal cultivated in Farms of BE in Hyderabad.This is an example to show Poverty of Intellectualism in Science of Plants.Prof Bir Bahadur,a plant geneticist at heart pointed out that India needs scientists with strategic intelligence to carry the torch of Robert Kyd , Sir George King and Ronald Ross.
