Munnabhai.Sharmaji is no more, said Professor RS Sharmas son in Patna For onceI felt orphaned My mentor since 1970 will not be available for discussions and guidance any more My thoughts immediately went back to the afternoon of December 291970 when I received a very complimentary pat on my back from a dhoti-kurta cladtallfair and robust historian after I had nervously presented my first research paper at the Indian History Congress (IHC) session at Jabalpur His humble self-introduction main RS Sharma hoon was stunningly gratifying but equally embarrassing The sense of disbelief then was enormousforI had by then already been through his masterly workssuch as Sudras in Ancient India (1958)Aspects of Political Ideas and Institutions in Ancient India (1959) and Indian Feudalism300-1200 (1965)during my graduation and post-graduation days Such indeed has been the persona of Sharmaji for people like mewho did not have the privilege of being his formal students but have had the great opportunity of receiving his blessings nonetheless The 91-year-old had all through encouraged young scholars through suggestions and comments on their writings More remarkablyhis humility had no limits he was always ready to learn even from a novice working in the discipline of history and go to the extent of acknowledging him/ her in his works Such a combination of scholarship and humility is not seen easily todaywhen even toddlers in history writing prefer to blow their own trumpets in the din of the market About six-seven years agowhen Sharmaji was recuperating in a Delhi hospital after a minor surgeryI visited him to wish a speedy recovery Even thereone could not miss his enormous enthusiasm and commitment to the discipline Showing one of his recently released bookshe said that it was his 85th book (including numerous translations in various Indian and foreign languages)in his 85th year Apparentlythat unceasing zest to write was his elixir that had kept him mentally and physically alive till almost the end of his life One of his last books is Rethinking Indias Past (2009) Sharmaji has written so prolificallynot to add many letters against his name but to spread a scientific historical consciousness amongst his readers The fact that his first book (Vishwa Itihas ki Bhumikain two volumes1953recently revised) was published in Hindi when he was merely in his early thirtiesand that he deliberately got almost all his works translated into Hindi and other Indian languagesare indicators of his concern for making his writings available to the maximum possible readers in their own languages Before accepting the offer of professorship and headship of the history department of the University of Delhi in 1973Professor Sharma had already created a distinct identity for the same department in Patna University during his 15-year tenure (1958-1973) Immediately after his arrival in Delhihe tried to harness the enormous pool of talent lying scattered over scores of constituent colleges of this university Sharmaji strongly believed that every person possesses some positive quality or the other and that opportunities should created for him/ her to concretise it He was a great institution buildera quality well represented in the way he shaped the academic programme and administrative structure of the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) as its founder chairman (1972-77) Sharmajis commitment to the dissemination of scientific history was boundless He was not just a class-room preacher He took his craft into the public domain andlike a true activistceaselessly fought communalobscurantist and fascist forces He literally led from the front When such forces withdrew his Ancient India (textbook for XI-XII classes) in 1977 (the book was subsequently restored)he came out with In Defence of Ancient India (1978) attacking those forces His Communal History and Ramas Ayodhya (1990) and Ramjanmabhumi-Baburi Masjid: A Historians Report to the Nation (in cooperation with Professors M Athar AliDN Jha and Suraj Bhan1991) made a strong case against the exponents of the Rama Temple (under the Babri Masjid) No wonderthe government of India sought his views on the more recent controversy about the Rama Setu project as well Earlierhe had been instrumental in getting a resolution passed at the IHC against the Emergency Professor Sharmas mastery of epigraphicliterary and archaeological texts enabled him to demolish many myths created by imperialist-colonialist historiography as well as by the cultural chauvinists of more recent timesand made scientific study of the ever-changing Indian society in all its dimensions possible He was a colossus It would be difficult to fill the void created by him WeIndianswould miss him The
