Dear Team Sambhasha,
I could finally take the necessary time to view all of the videos from your seminar in honour of Walter’s second death anniversary. I regret that I was unable to join during the event.
Each presenter was so interesting and knowledgeable: the mix of on-the-ground experiences made it a really terrific seminar. The combination of shared and unique knowledge of Ajanta and personal memories of Walter was a tribute to Dr. Spink’s generosity and delight in debate and his work together with generations of students and colleagues in India.
Taken as a whole, your seminar gives one confidence that the study of Ajanta and related topics will continue to thrive–together with exploration of unresolved issues. I hope plans to continue the tradition of the Ajanta site seminars will go well and that Covid does not become an obstacle to a successful event.
Please keep me informed if future seminars are planned.
With congratulations and many thanks for allowing me to view the program,
