The Voice behind the Voices Durable Link to this BLOG
The Voice behind the Voices

Today's Star of Mysore (an evening English daily in the city of Mysore) features contributions of my mother to the city.

Over the years Amma has gotten recognition as a historian, as a humorist, as a writer, and as a non-creative scholar, but never as an administrator, something she excelled at for thirty five years at the All India Radio, in the period before there was TV or Internet in India, often in adverse conditions. So I was absolutely delighted to read this "The Voice behind the Voices" piece by a veteran biographer (HSK).

Also read in context, Amma's Memoirs of Mysore.

Many thanks to patron Ganesh Prasad Katte for pointing out. Apparently Star of Mysore newpaper doesn't keep archives so I have cached a faithful copy here.

Benefiting from Friend's Goodwill

It is so good to have admirers all over the world. A researcher was appalled to find one of Amma's articles published in a scholarly journal in another person's name!

Amma's research is neither cited, nor acknowledged. Some sentences have been copied word-to-word!

Of course, I am going to take action. Especially since the publisher is supposed be a cash rich, reputed publisher of scholarly information.

Perhaps the author thought that a website is too lowly a resource to acknowledge in a scholarly article? She didn't think it was lowly when stealing from it...

Amit Guha, a long time visitor has started Kala Darshana a website on India's art history. Check out the beautiful photographs.
