After a brief overview of solar and astrophysics in India, we will present a bird’s eye view of modern solar physics in India. We will then focus on contributions from IIT (BHU) and collaborative efforts highlighting some significant contributions with colleagues at Max-Planck-Institut für Sonnensystemforschung, Göttingen during the last over 25 years. We will conclude with present efforts and future vision of SP2RG (solar and space plasma physics research group) in our Department at IIT (BHU).
