This issue features the meteorologist Edward Lorenz. He was among the first to realise the importance of chaotic, unpredictable behaviour in even very simple models of the weather. One could argue that the real world had its fair share of unpredictability even before his work helped us to understand it! Another remarkable scientist, George Sudarshan comes face-to-face with his former graduate student. My generation and few following had the privilege of interacting with him in his stays in Bangalore and Chennai. Some of the insight, perspective, and humour which many of us benefited from come through in this interview.
