In an age where fewer and fewer scientists get as much airtime as two-bit celebrities looking for a publicity stunt, this tribute to Homi Bhabha ought to grab eyeballs.

Saptaparni, in association with Akshara, is organising an audio-visual presentation and readings from "A Masterful Spirit: Homi Bhabha", by Indira Chowdhury, on 24th September.

In her presentation, Indira Chowdhury will be drawing on her recent experience in writing, compiling and working on the design of her recent archival book on the physicist Homi Jehangir Bhabha, entitled A Masterful Spirit: Homi Bhabha 1909-1966 (with Ananya Dasgupta, Penguin, 2010). The presentation will focus on Bhabha's early life, the kindling of his deep interest in physics at Cambridge, his subsequent work in India, and his efforts to create two major institutions of scientific research in India.

Indira Chowdhury is founder of Archival Resources for Contemporary History (ARCH), Bangalore. Formerly professor of English at Jadavpur University (Kolkata), she has a Ph.D in history from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London (1993). Her book, The Frail Hero And Virile History (Oxford University Press, 1998) was awarded the Tagore Prize in 2001.

Interested in setting up archival resources for research, she set up the Archives of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai, the Archives of Naandi Foundation in Hyderabad, and the Archives of Dr. Reddy's Laboratories in Hyderabad.

She is a council member of the International Oral History Association. She has curated several archival exhibitions at TIFR, including Partners In Science: JRD Tata And TIFR (2005), and Homi Bhabha: The Cambridge Connection, in 2007. In 2006, she was awarded the New India Fellowship to write an institutional history of TIFR.
