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.

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.
