INFLUENTIAL INTELLECTUAL HITTING NINETY ...

One of Permanent Black's blogspots in January 2013 focused on Ranajit Guha turning 90 on 23 May 2013, and asked people to email felicitations, messages, anything they might want communicated to him for that auspicious day.

That invitation stands till 20 May 2013: messages to him, emailed by that date to Permanent Black , will be forwarded to Ranajit Guha and as many as possible will also subsequently be blogged.

RG IN 1986
Short pieces have been received from the following scholars and friends of Ranajit Guha:

CHRIS GREGORY
DAVID DARDIMAN
DIPESH CHAKRABARTY
GAYATRI CHAKRAVORTY SPIVAK
HOMI BHABHA
MILINDA BANERJEE
NONICA DATTA
RICHARD PRICE
SHAHID AMIN

These contributions will shortly be blogged. A birthday booklet with most of these has been printed by Permanent Black and couriered to Mechthild Guha. She will give it to her husband on his ninetieth birthday.

Further contributions (not more than 600 words) from other friends and well-wishers are most welcome.
