A bicycle and a book on mathematics belonging to economist Amartya Sen, a notepad of Peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa and a wooden bear that was on the desk of Finnish politician Martti Ahtisaari - personal collectibles belonging to various Nobel laureates are coming to India, with the Stockholm-based Nobel Museum`s exhibition making its debut in this country.

Nobel laureate Amartya Sen has said the Gujarat riots of 2002 are not comparable with the anti-Sikh riots in Delhi in 1984, rejecting Infosys chief N R Narayanamurthy`s view that the post-Godhra violence should not stand in the way of Narendra Modi becoming prime minister.
Shinde on Thursday disapproved of BJP MP Chandan Mitra`s demand of stripping economist Amartya Sen of the Bharat Ratna and went on to endorse the views of the Nobel laureate against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
