books by Rohini Chowdhury

The history of humankind upon earth has been shaped by great discoveries - of fire, of the wheel, of metalworking, of steam, of petroleum, of the laws of the universe, of mathematics, physics, medicine. These discoveries are a part of our daily lives. Yet we take them for granted, and seldom stop to think of the people and stories that lie behind them.

So here are some such stories for you to read.
