The Reconstructing LRB project is part-biography and part micro-history. It aims, on one hand, to reconstruct the life and contributions of it's subject: Labdhi Bhandari, or LRB, who was the STC Chair Professor of Marketing at the Indian Institute of Mangement, Ahmedabad and a widely respected management professional. On the other hand, it aims to provide a set of unique, micro-historical lenses into the world that LRB inhabited - post-independence India. For, LRB was one of midnight's children - born in 1948, months after India's freedom, who were co-opted into India's nation-building project. In this quest, we strive towards rich detail and historical accuracy, reconstructing the people, places and events that LRB intersected with.
