Commemorating the 20th death anniversary of Hindu thinker and scholar Shri Ram Swarup, Indic Academy  announced on the 26th of December that it has instituted a Ram Swarup-Sita Ram Goel Memorial Fund for promoting Indic research and publication.

Shri Ram Swarup and Shri Sita Ram Goel are both towering intellectuals and widely regarded as the pioneers in Indic history research and politics in the post-Independence time frame.

The memorial fund, established with an initial corpus of Rs 20 lakh is aimed at the propagation, research and publication of studies in different areas of Indic history, culture and religion as earlier carried out by these stalwarts.

The fund will be managed by an independent editorial board consisting of noted Indologist Shri Koenraad Elst as the chairman. Scholar-activist Shri Shrikant Talegri, eminent journalist Shri R. Jagannathan and reputed historian Smt Meenakshi Jain are the other members of the board. Shri R. Jagannathan is also the editorial director of Swarajya.

The editorial board will soon announce the various themes of research and scholarships open to students and researchers.

The fund will be administered under the aegis of the Inter-University Centre for Indic Knowledge Systems of Indic Academy.

Shri Ram Swarup is considered as an important thought leader for the Hindu revivalist movement having published books on his in-depth studies through his publication house Voice of India. Voice of India was instrumental in publishing many well-researched studies which were against the prevailing narrative of the time.

Sita Ram Goel, best-known for his book How I became a Hindu, was a pioneering political and religious activist who wrote extensively on the damage to Indic culture and Hinduism wrought by the expansionist nature of Islam and missionary activities of Christianity. – Swarajya, 26 December 2018
