NEW YORK (TIP): The Yashpal and Urmilesh Arya India
 Studies Library was recently dedicated at Stony Brook University.  The 
library is located in the Bishembarnath and Sheela Mattoo Center for 
India Studies. Its naming recognizes the gift of $250,000 by Drs. 
Yashpal and Urmilesh Arya to the Center’s endowment campaign, which has 
been matched by the Simons Match Fund. The Aryas’ donation will allow 
for the expansion of the library’s services and initiatives, including 
special collections and online courses, to make the library’s resources 
more widely available.

The dedication ceremony drew a large gathering of Stony Brook faculty, staff, students and administrators, and members of the Indian American
 community. Dr. Yashpal Arya, flanked by Dr. Urmilesh Arya, described 
the library’s dedication as “one of the happiest days of our lives.” He 
told the audience of his family’s history of philanthropy, both in India
 and in the United States.
  “I am proud to stand here today to continue this family tradition of 
perpetuating further education with the help of Stony Brook University 
through its forward thinking, visionary policy making, and the Mattoo 
Center for India Studies for its strong resolve and relentless pursuit 
that led to the creation of this library.” Dr. Arya thanked the Stony 
Brook administration for their “enlightened support” for the Center. He 
also thanked Professors S.N. and Kamal K. Sridhar, whom he described as 
the Center’s “Pitamaha” and “Matamaha” (grandparents).

“You make your living by earning. You make your life by giving,” Dr. Arya told the audience.

Nirmal K. Mattoo, Chair of the Center’s executive committee, praised the
 Aryas for their involvement “in philanthropy on a large scale.”  He 
noted their long-time “commitment to the Center’s vision.”

Sacha Kopp dedicated the library, and thanked attendees for their 
“participation in the decades-long effort to create the Center for India
 Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences.” “A public university” 
Dean Kopp explained, “has the responsibility not only to serve the 
public through education but to give back to the public in the form of 
knowledge and sharing and fostering community and culture.” A library is
 a “gathering of community” and the “lifeblood” of a campus. “As I 
reflect on ‘community,’ I see it here today.”


 S.N. Sridhar, founding Director of the Mattoo Center, described the 
vital functions of the India Studies library.  It features a collection 
of more than 13,000 works, including major reference works, such as the 
Critical Edition of the Mahabharata and the Collected Works of Mahatma 
Gandhi, and special collections on Indian languages donated by noted 
research scholars. The library’s resources are used by Stony Brook 
students, faculty, and visiting scholars and researchers from around the
 world. The Mattoo Center is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a 
Gala on October 29th at Leonard’s in Great Neck.
