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