Collecting History!

Nice article on a unique collector from Bangalore.  One can wonder what is so sustainable about collecting old papers and artefacts, but in  a world where virtual digital is the norm, it is heartening to see someone caring for old parchments and papers of historical value.  Today these collections may have little interest beyond a small circle of like-minded collectors, but tomorrow is another day and there will come a time when these collectibles will find a wider audience as our society develops a greater understanding of India's past.
