Ashoka Fellow
India
Fellow Since 1990
This description of Suman Sahai's work was prepared when Suman Sahai was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1990.
Introduction
Suman Sahai, who describes herself as an amalgam of Indian and scientist, rose to be a professor of genetics at Germany's Heidelberg University before deciding to return to her native and notoriously slow developing eastern U.P., the heart of the Gangetic Plain, to see if she could find new ways of helping the region break out of its stagnation.
