One of CSD’s annual signature events is the Durgabai Deshmukh Memorial Lecture.
The lecture is held every year on 15 July, the birthday of Dr. Durgabai Deshmukh and
is delivered by an eminent expert or renowned personality on any subject of his/her choice
relating to social development.
A collection of these lectures from 1992 to 2010 was published in the form of a book under the title: Towards Just and Equitable Development”.
