The M.S. Chadha Center for Global India, made possible by a gift from Sumir Chadha ’93, was dedicated at Princeton University on April 27.

The center will bring together scholars and students from all disciplines to broadly explore contemporary India, including its economy, politics and culture. It is named in honor of Chadha’s grandfather, a distinguished physician who served as the director general of Health Services for India.

The center will be led by a distinguished scholar to be announced at a later date.

Birkelund ’52 Professor in History and International Affairs and director of the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies; Peter Wendell ’72; Kush Parmar ’02; Princess Padmaja Kumari Mewar; Sumir Chadha ’93; Sanjay Swani ’87; Preeti Swani; and Princeton President Christopher L. Eisgruber.
