I don't think so, pushkar. There's a paper called

*Inhomogeneous Vacuum: An Alternative Interpretation of Curved Spacetime * which is interesting, see

http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2008ChPhL..25.1571Y. This is more reasonable than people generally appreciate, because Einstein did talk about inhomogeneous space and curvilinear motion rather than

*curved spacetime* per se:

*"This space-time variability of the reciprocal relations of the standards of space and time, or, perhaps, the recognition of the fact that “empty space” in its physical relation is neither homogeneous nor isotropic, compelling us to describe its state by ten functions (the gravitation potentials gμν)..." * But there is an issue. When you move away from the idea of curved spacetime and think in terms of inhomogeneous space instead, you find that you need something to cause this inhomogeneity. Then you find yourself with curved space, and all you've done is swapped one geometry for another.
