यह विशाल और महत्वाकांक्षी प्रयास प्रमुख भारतीय नेता और चरण सिंह के बेटे श्री अजीत सिंह के प्रोत्साहन और समर्थन एवं उनके बेटे जयंत चौधरी (http://www.jayantchaudhary.org/) की भागीदारी के बिना संभव नहीं होता। श्री अजित सिंह ने 1986 के बाद से एक संसद सदस्य के रूप में कार्य किया है और (1989-2014 तक अलग अलग समय पर) केंद्रीय उद्योग मंत्री, खाद्य, कृषि और नागरिक उड्डयन के रूप में सेवा की है।
There are many people to thank when an effort of this magnitude and depth is undertaken, and is required to continue for posterity.
Ram Ajor was personal assistant to Charan Singh from 1980 till his passing in 1987, and his assistance to the CSA in matters large and small has been invaluable. A sincere, softly spoken man he continues to help CSA collect and bring together material.
Anando Banerjee's (http://wizardconcepts.com/) design sensibilities and technical competence are both outstanding, and this archive is really his product. What is even more attractive is his no-nonsense, mature and balanced approach to project delivery.
Brass, Prof. Paul Richard
Paul R. Brass (http://www.paulbrass.com/) is a hero of this Archive - his three volume biography of Charan Singh motivated us to to think about this ambitious project. If an American academic wanted to keep his word to Charan Singh almost 30 years after the latter's death, why not those of us who exist because of the man not repay our debts, if we indeed owe our ancestors anything, to his memory? Paul also opened out for the Archives his treasure trove of books, newspaper cuttings, audio interviews, memories and recollections of Charan Singh.
Sharma, Bhola Shanker
Bhola Shanker Sharma is managing trustee of the Kisan Trust setup in 1977 by Charan Singh, and has contributed actively by providing us translations, numerous photographs and a host of archival documents including original edition books.
Ajay Singh, former Member of Parliament and Union Minister in 1989, encouraged CSA from its very initial days. His personal memories of Charan Singh, with whom he was closely connected as an aide from 1980 to 1987, are both emotional and objective. His guidance is invaluable in connecting us with people who knew Charan Singh and many of whom have contributed to these Archives.
