'Modernity from Below'

M S S Pandian’s Life and Mission

Two tributes to M S S Pandian - scholar, activist and EPW contributor - who passed away recently in New Delhi.

I thank S V Rajadurai, Padmini Swaminathan, V Janardhan and Sarajit Majumdar for their inputs. All errors are mine.

I would not narrate how scholarly M S S Pandian is throughout his writings. Many others would probably reflect this story. Readers already know his publications in varying degrees. I would like to describe how and why he was down-to-earth all throughout his life and also inform readers a few stories from his oral contributions which might be missed otherwise.
