Guha or Ghosh; they are both Great!! #AtoZChallenge

The authors that I am sharing with you for the alphabet H were long decided; even though the post was not prepared. Their names had been doing cartwheels in my mind’s blogging corner and yet I could not get this post on time!

Life loves throwing googlies to us and yesterday was one such time. I slept off right  in front of the page that I was editing with the laptop on my lap!! I was so bushed that I don’t even remember shutting it off!  So here I am a day late but with 2 great authors both tremendously talented with a great body of work to their credit. Let me know what you think?

First is Ramachandra Guha, a historian and biographer based in Bangalore. He has taught at the universities of Yale and Stanford, held the Arné Naess Chair at the University of Oslo, and been the Indo-American Community Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley. He is the author of the book Gandhi before India & India after Gandhi, the first part of a planned two-volume biography of M. K. Gandhi. His large body of work, covering a wide range of fields and yielding a number of rational insights has made him a significant figure in Indian historical studies, and Guha is valued as one of the major historians of the late twentieth and early twenty first centuries.
