PR Chari                                   General Dipankar Banerjee

This initiative is a tribute to Mr PR Chari and Gen Dipankar Banerjee, who provided a vital breakthrough for many young scholars, gave them a space to grow and made the budding academics to believe in themselves. "Capacity Building" was their belief; they practised the same in the multiple institutions they served and built. Many leading scholars across the world today, penned their first essay under the mentorship of these two legends.

Mr Chari and Gen Banerjee, we owe you. And we will continue the tradition that you have set.
