A Passionate Humanitarian VKRV Rao (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


This volume contains 31 reminiscences by colleagues, friends and kin who were associated with the late V.K.R.V. Rao during his life-time, particularly in his life-long mission to nurture social science in the country and build centres of excellence in social science research. It is a tribute to his memory on the occasion of his centenary and focuses mainly on the third and final Institution, Institute for Social and Economic Change, Bangalore that Professor Rao founded.The incidents covered and personalities referred to in the contributions give a good idea about the man who rode as a colossus in the academic and intellectual arena of the country for over 50 years, the personal and professional challenges he faced in his relentless quest and always emerged victorious. It is hoped that the collection would provide for us and the posterity a glimpse of the exemplary zeal with which Professor Rao went about fulfilling his mission and inspired scores of young academics to participate in it.
