Speakers: Ajai Shukla, former military officer and columnist for the Business Standard on strategic affairs; and Sonia Shukla, former journalist and presently with the Institute of Chinese Studies 
 
In a talk illustrated with photographs, Ajai and Sonia Shukla will share their experience of a yearlong research stay in Arunachal Pradesh, and of several subsequent visits to that border state. It began in 2008 with a research project that required 20,000 miles of driving up and down the five major river valleys that comprise the state. From the 15,000-foot high Bumla Pass on the Sino-Indian border, to the implausibly beautiful Mechuka and Ziro, to Kibithu – the eastern tip of India where the sun rises on the cub-continent – they talked to locals to reconstruct an oral account of how the British-era “excluded area” of the North East Frontier Agency (NEFA) evolved into an Indian state

An erstwhile French settlement of Chandernagore, 40 kms north of Calcutta with a unique history of its own, lies in neglect, threatened to disappearance by the pressures of modern development. How do we preserve this important slice of Indo-French history? In a scenario where cultural value is embodied in layered histories and narratives, and while built heritage is defined by non-monumental buildings, the challenges of urban conservation become far more complex. While experts at conferences and seminars romanticise about the glory of the past, ordinary citizens have to deal with the everyday issues of health, sanitation, property disputes and economics making heritage conservation an elitist dream. The fundamental question that one needs to answer is whose heritage is it anyway? The talk will outline almost a decade of work on experimenting with new methodologies for conservation of this unique heritage as part of the Chandernagore Initiative
