No 'Sarasvati' from Rajaram

We have been notified of another paper about Rajaram's Fraud & Fantasy
which is most interesting:

Apart from describing "Horseplay", it says:

New Delhi , October 13

...."The National Book Trust (NBT) is not publishing the controversial book
> From Saraswati River to Indus Script by engineer-turned-historian N S
Rajaram and palaeographist Dr Natwar Jha.
The director of NBT, N K Bhattacharjee has denied receiving any
instructions form the
government to publish it. This negates Rajaram's claim that the
government has "advised" the NBT to publish his book not just in
English but also in thirteen Indian languages. "....

Apparently, occasionally, standing up & be counted helps.
