Thank you to those of you who answered survey questions for my research. If you haven't, you can still help by answering the following question: have you belonged, or do you belong, to an intentional community? I'm particularly interested here in any scholars with experience in this area who have also had some connection to SUS (meetings, journal etc.). You can reply to me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again!

I am searching for some/ any biographical information about Sarjit Singh (S.S.) Randhawa, who published the following paper:
‘Change in Superscription on Coins of Native States, 1858-1872’, Journal of Indian History, vol. 14.2 (August, 1967), pp. 541-51.
I am planning to include this paper in my forthcoming edited volume, The Raj and the Rajas (part of the series, Monetary History of India: Manohar Publishers, New Delhi).

Would you share a bibliography if one is created?

There is a good link about it from UVA with references here: https://collab.its.virginia.edu/wiki/renaissanceold/Concept%20Encyclopedia%20Analysis%20-%20The%20Bardo.html.
