A controversy that wouldn't go away!

Here is an op-ed in today's Hindu about the Physics Nobel 2005 controversy. Apparently,
In a lecture in September 1973 at the IISc, titled "In Search of Perspective: An Attempt at Self-Assessment," Prof. Sudarshan, speaking about this work, had said: "And here too I see evidence that international science is not a monarchy nor a democracy; rather, it is reminiscent of a more primitive social organisation of the era of robber barons."
Now, that sounds interesting! However, the source of this piece of information is missing in the article (which would have made it more interesting, shall we say!).
