Satellite Remote Sensing and GIS with Geology, are my passion and discipline. This discipline has taken me round the world, to national and international Government Organizations and Universities of repute. It gave me a name, a persona. I appreciate and am happy for all these privileges.
But deep within, there was another greater passion, which made me burn the midnight oil in the quest of trying to learn about our historical past, our monumental heritage, the way our ancestors lived their life, the monuments they commissioned, and their chronicled biographies.
This query of history and heritage made me a student once again, and has put me in the winding path of exotica of ancient Archaeology.
I believe that Archaeology rests in the cradle of Geology. GIS and Satellite Remote Sensing are a set of new eyes to behold archaeological monuments.

    Entirely agree with Kamal Malhotra. Madhu, your scholarship is amazing. the site is very easy to navigate, and seems technically very stable. Not unnecessary bells and whistles on the site. The history in these pages is very rich and informative, not too detailed or insipid, but very hypnotising. One gets literally transported in that era. I tried to copy some material on the prices and names of Perfumes during Akbar/Mughal Era, but could not. On further enquiry figured out that Ain-e-Akbari is available in several languages and with booksellers. On the whole, a great experience going through these pages.

    Dear Madhu,

    I am overwhelmed to come across your page. Your writings are very realistic and could easily walk me down to undivided India.
    would love to read about your experiences from your core discipline of geology. My best wishes for your writings and endeavours.
