“Babuji was the lecturer in the English Department of the prestigious Allahabad University… he did his PhD in English literature from Cambridge in 1954… went in 1952 and within 2 years finished his PhD which normally takes 4 years… his dissertation was ‘W B Yeats and Occultism’… (sic),” wrote the actor.
