Un hommage à Bipan Chandra de notre collègue Mritiunjoy Mohanty

BIPAN CHANDRA (1928-2014)
A Tribute
Mritiunjoy Mohanty

I did not have the privilege of knowing Prof Bipan Chandra, the pre-eminent historian of modern India and a leading public intellectual, who passed away on Saturday, 30th August 2014 as a friend, colleague or student. I was however introduced to his work during my years of studentship, beginning in the mid-1980s, at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning of the School of Social Sciences at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi. Over the years as a part of my own research agenda became more inter-disciplinary, I have had occasion to read and re-read some of his oeuvre and have, as always, been struck by the depth of his scholarship and the meticulousness of the argument. It did not matter whether one agreed or disagreed with him. One always had to contend with him.
