Vasudha Dalmia

Vasudha Dalmia

Vasudha Dalmis was born into a family of major Indian industrialists. Having decided to be a scholar of literature and drama, she received her doctorate at the University of Tuebingen, Germany. She arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area to take up the position of Chair of the Department of South and Southeast Asia Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. During her years in Berkeley, she was a frequent guest in our home, having so much in common with my India scholar wife Karine. After years in Berkeley, she decided to take a position at Yale University, and then retired to the family compound in New Delhi. Currently visiting old friends in Berkeley, she came by our home and I photographed her, charmed as always by her remarkable intellect, kindness and humor.
