An Institutional History of TIFR

The Bangalore based New India Foundation has announced this year's five New India Fellowships. The fellowships are for writing "original books on different aspects of the history of independent India". They are worth Rs. 50,000 a month (for a year).

One of the fellowships, this year, goes to Indira Chowdhury who's going to write an institutional history of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research.

Thanks for the info. TIFR is indeed one of the great things to happen for India. I was in TIFR as part of their visiting student's research program and then I attended Sunil Mukhi's course when I was in IITB. It is a great place. Nice to know about Indira Chowdhury's plan.

I've tagged this link, maybe I'll apply with a history book proposal next year.
