Wonderful article by Pratap Bhanu Mehta on what we have lost as scholarship and higher education have ossified in India in the last century.

No, I am not talking about the Vijayanagara Nayakas, Deccan Sultans or Marathas. Nor am I talking about my family's visit to Gingee aka Senjikottai last week.
I am writing about Karthik, Siva, Seenu and Perumal. Azra also. And others who have attempted to match the fort architecture and the impressive rock formations of Gingee with their calligraphy.
Now that we all know they have been here, we can be confident about the future of our shared heritage.
