Birth of IISc

IISc Director and Current Science Editor P. Balaram's latest editorial is on The Birth of the Indian Institute of Science (pdf). After giving us a lot of little nuggets of information (which point to a decade-long struggle that preceded our Institute's birth) from official archives belonging to various organizations, he leaves us with this conclusion:

The full story of the IISc and the men who built it is yet to be written. If the right scribe is found, it should be a tale worth reading.
