Dr. Michael Witzel, Wales Professor of Sanskrit at Harvard University (USA), will deliver a set of three conferences in India. A very proper event in the year of the commemoration of Charles Darwin (1809-1882), the famous scientist who was opposed by the Christian church for so long time.
Prof. Witzel is a well-known scientist whose thesis on the script of the Indus Valley Civilization raised a lively debate among radical Hindus. This is the calendar of his lectures:
- 8 July 2009, The Madras Sanskrit College, Chennai (organized by Indus Research Centre, Roja Muthiah Research Library, Chennai) (Jubilee lectures)
- 9 July 2009, Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, or Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Advanced Study, New Delhi
- 10 July 2009, India International Centre, New Delhi
