Neetha Rani has done her Ph.D from University of Hyderabad. Her doctoral thesis focused on the Delhi Durbars of colonial era exploring how political rituals played a key role in sustaining British rule in India. Through an evaluation of the various ceremonies observed in the Durbars, she investigates the ideological and political underpinnings on which the Durbars were planted, choreographed and executed; how those ideological contours went a long in fashioning the British interaction with the native princes of India and the rest of the natives.
