A heavy-lift vehicle has been the missing piece in ISRO's ambitions for years.

  • Rare images document the centuries-long history of Africans in India

    Almost a hundred years before Shivaji began to consolidate his empire, Malik Ambar of Bijapur led an army of 50,000 soldiers, many of whom were Marathi cavalry soldiers, against the Mughals. Malik Ambar, who was born in Ethiopia and brought as a slave to India around 1570, was one member of India’s once-thriving community of African immigrants. Like other Africans in India, he is now only rarely remembered. Dr Sylviane Diouf, director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, has been working on this exhibition, for some years now,  in association with Ken Robbins, who co-wrote a book on African elites in India.
