Join us in a discussion on India's ongoing national elections, arguably the most polarizing in recent history. We hope to engage an audience with varying levels of exposure to contemporary political debates in India. Novelist and visiting professor Rana Dasgupta as well as a host of other discussants will provide short introductions to orient those unfamiliar with the topic. The latter half of the event will be an open-ended conversation regarding the social, economic and ideological platforms held by contending parties and their implications for India's future.
