To commemorate the birth centenary of Fr. Henry Heras (1888-1955), the Heras Institute of Indian History and Culture (as the Indian Historical Research Institute was named after the death of its founder) presents a select collection of his numerous articles -- he wrote some three hundred -- arranged in the chronological order of their themes.
