Anirban Bhattacharya, my PhD student | The Indian Express

Professor Tanika Sarkar writes about her PhD Student, Anirban Bhatacharya:

I have always found him to be an extremely bright and thoughtful young research scholar. He is open to criticism, however harshly put, and he listened attentively to my doubts and objections when he presented his chapter drafts. But then he would make up his own mind and argue his case cogently, abandoning some of my suggestions and incorporating some others. That kind of intellectual independence is precisely what most JNU teachers expect from their students. He works on north Bengal tea gardens in colonial times and he is deeply committed to his research.
Anirban is now in the last year of his PhD programme — will he be allowed to finish the work that he loves, that he invested so much in, despite his frail and delicate health and bouts of illness? And will JNU be allowed to preserve its tradition of intellectual freedom? – See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/opinion/columns/my-phd-student-umar-khalid-anirban-bhattacharya-jnu-jnu-row/#sthash.n22f1fD1.dpuf
