The Center for the Advanced Study of India Announces Second Sobti Family Fellow

June 15, 2015

The Center for the Advanced Study of India (CASI) announced today the second Sobti Family post-baccalaureate Fellow, Sindhuri Nandhakumar, C’14, for the 2015-16 year.

Established through a gift from Penn parents Rajiv Sobti, Gr’84, and Slomi Sobti, the Sobti Family Fellowship is the first program at Penn to provide funding for a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania to conduct an independent research project in India.

“My time at Penn (and after) helped me gain a better understanding of my professional interests. Rather unexpectedly, I discovered that a creative career is important to me,” says Sindhu, who had the opportunity to develop a full-length play in Toronto this past year.

Sindhu’s research will focus on the artistic communities in Chennai and Mumbai and she hopes to learn more about the community-wide changes in the English language theater sector in India.
