Background[edit]

NARI is an NGO and non-profit research and development institute. It was established in 1968 by scientist Dr.B.V. Nimbkar. This year in 2018 NARI is celebrating its Golden Jubilee.[1] Dr. Chanda Nimbkar, head of Animal Husbandry Division contacted us regarding content donation to Wikisource. She is grand daughter of late Dr. Irawati Karve, social scientist and anthropologist. The 6 books of Irawati Karve were made copyright free by her daughter Dr. Jai Nimbkar at Phaltan. Dr.Chanda took initiative to re-licence books as well as future content donations in the field of rural technologies, animal husbandry and agriculture.
