Rush Rush to Landmark.

Tomorrow i.e. the 9th of May’ 2007, there is a book discussion and public lecture by Ramachandra Guha at Landmark in B’lore. The details are in the advertisement below.

I feel Guha doesn’t need any introduction and his name speaks it all. Just to give you a brief about this stalwart, Guha is a historian, biographer, and cricket writer. Born in Dehradun in 1958, he studied at St. Stephen's College, Delhi, and took his doctorate at the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta. Between 1985 and 1995 he held academic jobs in India, Europe, and North America. Since 1995 he has been a full-time writer, based in Bangalore. In 1997 and 1998 he was Indo-American Community Chair Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley. He has also taught at the universities of Yale, Stanford and Oslo, been a Senior Associate Member of St. Anthony's College, Oxford, a Senior Fellow of the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library in New Delhi, and a Fellow of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin.

This is just a very very brief intro and there is lot more to his literary achievements, his knowledge in sociology, environment, etc, etc. To cut it short he is a moving library. I regularly follow his posts on social and political issues for the general public in 'The Hindu', 'Outlook' magazine, 'B.B.C', 'The New York Times' but am pretty sure that he is sought after in other dailies both national and international.

I will definitely make to this lecture, those interested can join in the cruise for a profound, academic and engaging lecture by this treasure trove of knowledge, views and ideas.

Without further ado, it is over, now, to Ramachandra Guha... Don’t miss.

Keep reading and remain connected.
