Rohan Murty: Professor Sheldon Pollock Will Stay
It's a multi-million dollar effort at translating historic Indian works to English, but now, 130 scholars have hit out at Rohan Murty, son of Infosys' Narayan Murthy for picking a Columbia University Professor as the editor for his Murty Classical Library.

He explains to us why being a foreign national shouldn't come in the way of scholarship on India.
