On August 17, 2022, IIMA got its own 'Kamla', thanks to Prof. Sanjay Verma's initiative. The cafe, the latest in the 'Kamla' series of cafes run by SEWA (Self-Employed Women's Association) Ahmedabad, is named after Prof. Kamla Chowdhry (1920-2006), IIMA's first faculty member.
This month's snippet presents a document, prepared in March 2020 and updated earlier this month, which describes the story behind the name and Prof. Chowdhry's association with Elaben Bhatt (SEWA's Founder) and SEWA. We hope you enjoy learning about Prof. Chowdhry's concern for the development of self-employed women. IIMA Archives released a short film on her birth centenary (December 17, 2020), which you can watch [here]; some photos are available at this [link].
