My research work continues this summer at the Prof. S.C. Mishra Archives and Library Cell at the MS University in Baroda. In this post, I want to share with you some images from the archive that I am working at. The materials I am studying are known as the Haribhakti Collection and were donated by Mr. Arvind Haribhakti between 1983 and 1987. Hari and Bhakti were two brothers who created a powerful banking firm in the eighteenth century in western India. The firm was initially based in Pune but moved to Baroda at the insistence of the early Gaekwad regime. Descendants of Hari and Bhakti continued the family business of money lending to the state, resolving local disputes, and honoring promissory notes (bills of exchange) from other bankers across western India.
