This collection of incomplete memoirs provides rare insights into the personality of an outstanding economist and well-known institution builder in India. V.K.R.V. Rao founded the Delhi School of Economics and the Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi, and later, the Institute for Social and Economic Change, Bangalore. Rao worked in close association with the key players in independent India’s politico-economic policymaking such as Pandit Nehru and P.C. Mahalanobis. Distinguished academics P.N. Dhar, C.H. Hanumantha Rao, G. Thimmaiah, Uma Datta Roy Choudhury, and Ashish Bose highlight Rao’s contribution to various fields of applied economic research. These accounts fill some of the gaps in the memoirs left by the passing away of V.K.R.V. Rao.
