Sharada Dwivedi came to be known as the Biographer of Bombay in the words of Charles Correa. A librarian by background, she came into prominence with her many publications on the city including Bombay: The Cities Within (1995), Fort Walks: Around Bombay’s Fort Area (1999) and Anchoring a City Line: the History of the Western Suburban Railway and its Headquarters in Bombay (2000). She was also a trustee of the Urban Design Research Institute. With her passing away in 2012, the UDRI decided to host a memorial lecture every year as a tribute to her achievements.
