  • History & Philosophy of the Indian sub-continent

Manana’s routine administrative expenses are primarily borne by the DDST but most of its ongoing social activities  depend on charitable donations.

Manana’s on-going activities can be broadly categorised as follows:

  • Is a specialised library.
  • Provides assistance to organisations and individuals for research and documentation, by offering its library facilities and human resource skills.
