Our esteemed colleague C. V. Vishveshwara, popularly referred to as Vishu, became sixty on sixth March 1998. His colleagues and good wishers felt that it might be acceptable to have a good time the social gathering by way of bringing out a quantity in his honour. these people who've had the great fortune to grasp Vishu, be aware of that he's certain, in a category via himself. Having been given the privilege to be the volume's editors, we felt that we should always try whatever various during this endeavour. Vishu is among the popular relativists from India whose pioneer­ ing contributions to the experiences of black holes is universally acknowledged. He was once a pupil of Charles Misner. His Ph. D. thesis at the balance of the Schwarzschild black gap, coordinate invariant characterisation of the sta­ tionary restrict and occasion horizon for Kerr black holes and next seminal paintings on quasi-normal modes of black holes have handed directly to develop into the beginning issues for unique mathematical investigations at the nature of black holes. He later labored on different elements regarding black holes and compact gadgets. a lot of those issues have matured over the past thirty years. New aspects have additionally constructed and develop into present parts of lively learn curiosity. now not are black holes, ultracompact items or occasion horizons mere idealisations of mathematical physicists yet concrete entities that astrophysicists realize, degree and search for. Astrophysical proof is mounting up gradually for black holes.

It is the analysis which has gone in beforehand to formulating the problem, and the associated conceptual difficulties, which have consumed the bulk of the effort expended in any proof of black hole stability. It is that which represents the work, and the contributions for which people are recognized. It is also there that future efforts must be directed in order to push the present results beyond where they currently rest. It is from there that the challenge goes out, especially to upcoming students, and interested researchers new to the field.
