Byrski is no longer Prof. of Sanskrit in Warsaw. He accepted a diplomatic
posting as Attache for Education and Technology at the Polish embassy in
Delhi. I visited him there, in Canakya Puri, in 1990, but I don't know
how long his posting was for. Three years, I imagine. It may be
over now, or close to finishing, and I guess Byrski will have kept a
foothold of some kind in Warsaw, domestic.
The other main Sanskritist in Warsaw, Marek Mejor, accepted a fellowship
in Japan at about the same time as Byrski went to Delhi.
