Next, R.C. Majumdar began scouting the country and enrolled only the finest scholars for this grand endeavor. Throughout the duration of the project, he was assisted by a “young and promising scholar” Dr. A.D. Pusalker who became assistant editor to the project. Here’s a partial list of the kind of titans who contributed to the volumes of the History and Culture of the Indian People: Dr. S. Srikanta Sastri, K.N. Dikshit, Suniti Kumar Chatterji, H.D. Sankalia, Dr. A.L. Srivastava, N. Venkataramanayya, T.M.P. Mahadevan, K.A. Nilakanta Sastri, G.S. Sardesai, Radhakumud Mookerji, S. Krishnaswamy Iyengar, Prof. U.N. Ghoshal, V.M. Apte, G.V. Devasthali, A.S. Altekar, Dr. Paramatma Saran…a resplendent galaxy of only the most luminous stars of scholarship, erudition and learning. It was indeed befitting that a multi-volume history of Bharatavarsha was filled with the sacred waters drawn from almost all Tirthas of its sacred geography: places as diverse and widespread as Calcutta, Delhi, Agra, Kurukshetra, Varanasi, Lucknow, Jaipur, Navsari, Pune, Bombay, Dharwad, Mysore, Bangalore, Vishakhapatnam, Guntur, Madras…This also reveals a straightforward truth of that period: Majumdar was able to enlist the services of these distinguished scholars because the academia throughout India was populated by such top quality talent.
