Tapas Majumdar

Although I never met Tapas Majumdar, I enjoyed reading his essays in The Telegraph in recent years, and had, when living in Delhi in the 1990s, befriended his friend and student Narindar Singh. The obituaries in the EPW (13 November) draw attention to Majumdar’s qualities as a scholar and human being, as, in a different but no less telling way, did the dedication to Narindar Singh’s prescient and u nfairly neglected book, Economics and the Crisis of Ecology. This read: “To Tapas, for reasons of head and heart”, as charming a book dedication as one could think of, and, as the EPW tributes make clear, also manifestly true.
