Remembering Dr A.B. Mukerji

Edited by: Malovika Pawar

Dr. A.B. Mukerji (1929-2011) was the doyen of cultural geographers in India. Not only did he introduce the idea of cultural geography as a systematic sub-discipline in the country, but he also initiated the study of cultural geography in India's rural settlements. At the same time, Mukerji's contributions to the fields of physical geography and geomorphology have been seminal. However, this book is not about A.B. Mukerji the geographer, but about the family man, husband, father, loyal friend, generous colleague, and caring teacher to generations of students. In this tribute, a vivid and compelling portrait emerges of the human being behind the scholar, as family, friends, students, and colleagues write of their encounters and long-lasting relationships with him.
