The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library invites all interested to to a Seminar on Tigers, Tribes, and Bureaucrats: Relocations from Melghat Tiger Reserve, Maharashtra by Dr. Nitin Sekar, Princeton University, New Jersey, USA.

The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) invites all interested to a Public Lecture in its ‘Cities in History’ series on ‘Delhi’s Twentieth Century: Reflections on contemporary urbanism’. The lecture will be delivered by Prof. Ravi Sundaram of the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS), Delhi. A recent international study listed Delhi as the second most populous city in the world. Delhi’s endless expansion is comparable to other international city-regions like Sao Paulo and Mexico City. Further the city now has a new urban politics, as well as cultural life. Ironically, despite its thousand-year history, Delhi’s claim to a dynamic urbanism was for years overshadowed by the vibrant cultural and political life of Calcutta and Bombay, both cities established by coloni
The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) invites all interested to a Public Lecture, in its ‘Science, Society and Nature’ series, on ‘A Disconnect in Need of Urgent Repair: Scientific thinking and policy-making’. The Lecture will be delivered by Prof. K. Vijayraghavan, Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, New Delhi. In this lecture, the speaker will address a global problem. Governments, the world-over, aim to serve people through crafting of policy. Scientific evidence can play a key role in policy making.

Yet, disconnecting science and evidence from policy making can have disastrous shor
The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library invites all interested to a Public Lecture, as part of its ‘Cities in History’ series, on "The Fields Beneath - London & Delhi" by Prof. Narayani Gupta. Indian urban historians recognise and study built towns, or networks of towns, but do not for most part examine why and how rural areas became ‘urbanised’. This is largely because of the lack of archival records for the centuries before the 20th. This Public Lecture will be a tribute to the fine work of Gillian Tindall on the history of Camden Town, and written in the hope that researchers working on Delhi will be tempted to delve into the pasts of the villages that have lost their landscapes and often their very names over the last 100 years. Date: Thursday, 21st August, 2014 Time: 3.0

Date: 5 February, 2014 (Wednesday) Time: 3.00 pm Venue: Seminar Room, First Floor, Library Building, NMML, New Delhi Abstract: Forests in South Asia are largely state owned but a fair proportion are community governed.
