Indian Institute,Oxford gets Krantiguru Pandit Shyamji Krishna Vermas Portrait

On Monday 11 May, the Indian Institute received a new portrait for its collection to commemorate its little known association to the founder of the India Home Rule Society. Pandit Shyamji Krishna Varma (1857-1930) was a graduate of Balliol College and founder of the Indian Home Rule Society, India House and the Indian Sociologist. London’s India House was opened in 1905 as a hostel for Indian students, many of whom found it difficult to find accommodation while in England. The Indian Sociologist, launched the same year, was aimed at inspiring mass opposition to British rule and stimulated many intellectuals to fight for the freedom of India.

Although better-known as a political activist, Pandit Shyamji Krishnavarma was also a noted scholar of Sanskrit and other Indian languages. The portrait was generously donated to the library by Hemantkumar Gajanan Padhya, the President of the Hindu Swatantryavir Smruti Sansthanam, Milton Keynes, and a regular reader in the Indian Institute Reading Room.

Thanks to Hemantbhai for providing us with the details .

Kutchi Language gets script

Kutchi has been around for ages, passed down the generations by the spoken word. It’s current in one-third of the state, given the size of Kutch, but had to rely on Gujarati for written communication. Till an ingenious Kutchi, Dr Rajul Shah, perfected land’s very first written script.

Shah’s script has received approval from the copyrights office in New Delhi. The next step is underway, which is to get the nod from the Central government which takes about eight months to come.

Her work has also won the favour of influential Kutchi communities such as the Shri Kutchi Dasha Oswal Jan Gnati Mahajan, Mumbai, Shree Mahavir Jain Charitra Kalyan, Ratnashram and Shree Kutchi Jan Sewa Samaj, Ahmedabad.

Dr Shah, an ayurvedic doctor, psychologist and a graphologist, studied Kutch extensively and in great detail to devise a new writing system. Now, she is ready with it. Says Shah, “I was always bothered by the fact that my land never had a script. I wanted it to have one.
