Vikram Nanjappa likes to be described as an ‘interested and well-informed amateur’. He draws his inspiration from the band of men called ‘The Orientalists’, most of whom were amateurs. By profession, they were soldiers and administrators. However, today, they are remembered as giants of scholarship. Like them, his field of enquiry is ‘Man and Nature: whatever is performed by the one or produced by the other’.
