Ashis Nandy, Ashis Da. One of India’s indigenous intellectuals. A sociologist, a trained clinical psychologist. Often celebrated as India’s most provocative thinkers. He had been a part of my journey since 2000, when i first started research into the oral histories of partition. His depth of understanding about the Indian psyche has been a great help in my work so far. The part i really enjoy about him? His keen intellect that rides on the earth of a thousand and one stories, breathing within this land.
