Starting with a summary of our previous work on obtaining axionic slow inflation with the correct number of 60 e-foldings getting non-trivial non-Gaussianities-related f_{NL} in slow-roll and beyond slow-roll scenarios as well as non-trivial tensor-to-scalar ratio in axionic slow-roll inflation in the framework of type IIB string theory compactified on an orientifold of a Swiss-Cheese Calabi-Yau expressed as a degree-18 hypersurface in the weighted complex projective space WCP^4[1 1 6 9]  after the inclusion of a mobile space-time filling D3-brane and fluxed [stack(s) of] space-time filling D7-brane(s) wrapping the ”big” (as opposed to the ”small”) divisor we give a geometric proposal for obtaining a super-massive gravitino in the inflationary epoch and a “light” gravitino in the present era in a single setup. We  also show that the setup naturally realizes a “mu-split supersymmetry scenario”  wherein having restricted the mobile D3-brane to the big divisor one obtains super-massive D3-brane positon moduli – identified as the two Higgs doublets – at the string scale and after 1-loop  Nath-Arnowitt RG-evolution to the EW scale  one obtains one light and one super-massive Higgs doublet. Also  the fermions (quarks/leptons)  corresponding to the fermionic super-partners of the Wilson line moduli are very light but the Higgsino mass parameter is very large. I also discuss issues like neutrino masses gluino and proton decays. As a bonus I will discuss obtaining the geometric Kaehler potential (relevant to the moduli space Kaehler potential in the presence of a mobile D3-brane) corresponding to a Ricci-flat metric for the Swiss-Cheese Calabi-Yau used in the large volume limit using Gauged Linear Sigma Model techniques for obtaining the geometric Kaehler potential for the big divisor and the Donaldson’s algorithm for obtaining Ricci-flat metics as guides.
