Romila Thapar's Speech

Prof Romila Thapar gave the last D D Kosambi Memorial Lecture in Pune on 31 July 2008. Two days earlier on 29th July she gave this wonderful speech at IUCAA / Pune.

Note: The speech begins after about 55 seconds into the audio below.

The speech covers the historiography of ancient India. There is no direct reference to DD Kosambi as such except that DDK's major contribution to Indian historiography was to the ancient period.

Thanks to Arvind Gupta for sending the link to the speech.
