India's Rotting History

Do read Dinyar Patel's reports on the sorrowful state of many Indian archives and libraries.

Links to his four-part series on the New York Times' "India Ink" site can be found below. The series looks at the woeful state of many Indian archives and libraries, and what is being done to improve the situation.





Dinyar Patel is a Ph.D. Candidate in Modern South Asia in the Department of History at Harvard University.
