K R G and Ratnam Nair visited SASNET and Lund University

October 20, 2017 - 01:30

K.R.G. Nair, formerly Professor of Business Economics at University of Delhi, India, visited SASNET and Lund University 10-12 June 2013, along with his wife Ratnam, Sanskrit scholar from Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi.
They came to Scandinavia mainly to attend the Asian Dynamics Initiative conference in Copenhagen on 13-14 June, but also took the chance to visit Joensuu University in Finland, and to fulllfill a personal desire to visit SASNET in Lund. This because of an admiration for the work done by SASNET. Prof. Nair informed that he, in the role of being Dean of the Faculty of Applied Social Sciences and Humanities at Delhi University, for many years had been fascinated by SASNET’s multi-disciplinary research efforts, and its newsletters. This conviction got further strengthened when Prof. Nair for over a decade functioned as the  founder Director of the Centre for Canadian Studies at Delhi University.
He is now retired, but is still active as Honorary Research Professor at the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi, and recently he published the book ”Road Not Taken: Memoirs of a University Teacher in the Newly Emerging Second World” (more information).
During their stay in Lund, K.R.G. and Ratnam Nair had fruitful meetings with SASNET representatives Anna Lindberg and Lars Eklund, and also with Prof. Neelambar Hatti from the Dept. of Economic History.
