churumuri.com is delighted to record that the writer and historian Ramachandra Guha has been honoured with the nation’s third highest civilian award, the Padma Bhushan.

A well-wisher of churumuri since its inception, Ram was named among the 100 most influential public intellectuals in the world last year by Foreign Policy magazine last year. Through his books, newspaper and magazine articles, and his television, academic and public appearances, Ram adds lustre to our intellectual firmament.

By honouring a true man of letters, the nation has truly honoured itself.
