Writing for the Times of India, Arjun Narayanan notes the issue of preserving the authenticity of Indian National Poet Bharati’s works, and how the concept of “moral rights” of attribution and integrity informed the Standard Edition recently published by Bharati’s granddaughter, the noted Bharati scholar Dr. S. Vijaya Bharati. Arjun’s article can be viewed here, and his blog is available here. Information on the Standard Edition is available on Dr. Bharati’s blog.
