I am Pankaj Bhambhani from India. I recently got interested in being an independent researcher after finishing my MSc in Astrophysics. It has been very exciting to learn about the communities out there (IGDORE, Ronin, NCIS, etc) for supporting independent academics.
This question is for folks based in India – do any of these communities have a physical presence in India? By that, I mean some sort of setup where people can come together and hang out/collaborate in person, eg formal/informal meetups.
If anyone knows anything, I would be very interested to hear. Thanks in advance.
