The grave of Master Ramchandra

Scroll down to content

Master Ramchandra’s grave at the Nicholson cemetery was proving elusive. But Sahil Kumar posted a photo of his grave on my wall from a previous visit he had made. And we made a plan to go together this morning. For those who don’t know, Master Ramchandra was an acclaimed mathematician at the Delhi college in Delhi between 1844 and 1857. In the overgrown forest that the Nicholson cemetery has now become, rests the grave of a man who was a leading figure of the intellectual renaissance that Delhi was experiencing in the decades just before the revolt of 1857. And to find his grave finally, a moment satisfaction.
