August 15, 2016
Idea of India Conclave
During the two years of the Narendra Modi government, there has been an all-round attack on various established institutions in the country, whether educational or cultural. There have been attempts to interfere with curricula, the way these institutions are run, as well as their mandate and autonomy.
The Idea of India Conclave 2016 discusses the growing assault on reason and institutions during the tenure of the Modi government in the country, in a panel discussion led by Githa Hariharan, with Apoorvanand, Ashok Vajpeyi and Satyajit Rath as panelists.
