How I rediscovered History
The opportunities that History offered me
As part of my programme, I had the opportunity to participate in an archaeological excavation of a 1st century BC site under the guidance of the Department of Archaeology of the Deccan College (Deemed University).
During my years at university, I volunteered as a tour guide for the Asiatic Society of Bombay. As part of this program, I was even given the opportunity to take the then President of India, APJ Abdul Kalam on a guided tour of the Asiatic Society premises.
After university, I went on to do a post-graduate degree in Linguistics. I studied and worked in linguistics for several years while I continued to nurture my love-affair with history in Berlin, Germany, which unarguably is a treasure trove for any historian.
From grand Prussian monuments to tiny tiles on the sidewalk, Berlin has it all. Berlin tells stories of people who changed the world forever as well as of the common man caught in the tides of history. After almost a decade of living in this city, I am still discovering Berlin and its local history.
