Abstract: The purpose of his life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. Meet Hippu Salk Kristle Nathan, an engineer-turned development researcher, hopelessly obsessed with the idea of ushering in development in a manner that it percolates to the grass root level. The social scientist has it all in his name, derived from great personalities from different walks of life – Hippu is a derivation of Hippocrates, the Greek physician of 5{+t}{+h}century B.C. regarded as the Father of Medicine; Salk comes from Jonas Salk, an American medical researcher best known for his discovery and development of the first successful polio vaccine, Kristle was the name of a woman social activist from Vienna, Austria, who married Nath Pai (Nathan) of the Praja Socialist Party led by Jayprakash Narain.
