Some Reminiscences

Ashish Bose

A tribute to Ashish Bose, the well-known demographer who had an impact on public policy in population.

Ashish Bose (born on 4 June 1930) obtained his PhD from the Delhi School of Economics under the guidance of V K R V Rao and was one of the founder-members of the Demographic Research Centre at the Institute of Economic Growth (IEG), University of Delhi, where he started his career. He worked to be at the IEG till his retirement and was later designated as Professor Emeritus and continued to be there till his last. Ashish Bose also received the Jawaharlal Nehru Award for Emeritus Fellows and joined the Jawaharlal Nehru University for a brief spell of two years at the Centre for Community Health and Social Medicine.

Ashish Bose was largely a son of the soil in the sense that he studied in Allahabad University and Delhi University (Delhi School of Economics and IEG), took up a job at the IEG and continued to be there for life. He was a widely travelled scholar, known for his academic calibre and oral dexterity not only in India but also in foreign universities and in United Nations (UN) circles. He was upright and vocal in expressing his opinion, as an expert representative of the Government of India and as an academician/demographer.
