Dr Pooja Sharma, GLF 2008-10
"The Fellowship was a tremendous broadening of horizons and world views. Through close interactions with scholars from different corners of the world, I was able to gain closer insights into some major schools and modes of thought in different continents and the different versions of the different schools. Also, the contacts and networks that the Fellowship has enabled have already been of value in unexpected ways after my return to India."
