The Members of the Society,
Dear Member,
I am very pleased to announce that we have appointed ‘The Curious Reader’ to run social media for the Asiatic Society of Mumbai. Every week we plan to feature a different book or item that is held by the Asiatic, or something relevant to the Asiatic.

The  Third  Dr. Aroon Tikekar Memorial Fellowship

 Dr. Aroon Tikekar, noted and erudite scholar-researcher, well-regarded writer, books and rare books collector, veteran editor, and eminent thinker passed away suddenly on January 19, 2016. He had contributed immensely to the intellectual life of Mumbai and Maharashtra in the last four decades through his vast collection of essays, editorials, opinion articles and books. He had also nurtured the tradition of well-researched historical and sociological studies.  Dr. Tikekar was the President of The Asiatic Society of Mumbai for six years (2007 to 2013) during which he had initiated several projects to enthuse and motivate young research scholars, and had infused new ideas and programmes into the renowned institution.
