Guha to deliver memorial lecture on Jan 31


OST Bureau
Bhubaneswar, Jan 30:

Renowned historian and columnist Dr Ramachandra Guha would deliver the third Chittaranjan Das Memorial Lecture on ‘Gandhi, Ambedkar and the emancipation of Dalits’ at the IDCOL Auditorium here on Friday.

The lecture is being organized by Sikshasandhan, a state-based resource centre working for the elementary education system of Odisha, particularly for the scheduled tribes and scheduled caste population.

The centre was founded by noted Indian thinker Chittaranjan Das whose writings constitute a major contribution to Indian literature while his essays bring the ideas of great thinkers of the East as well as of the West to bear upon his reflections on the dimensions of the here and now, a Sikshasandhan release said.
