A conversation with film director Anand Patwardhan, Professor Sana Aiyar, History, MIT, and Professor Amartya Sen, Economics & Philosophy, Harvard

Co-sponsored by: WGS, Literature, Transmedia Storytelling, History, MIT-India, Starr Forum/ Center for International Studies, MIT LIST

Reason sets out to chart what Patwardhan sees as India’s slide away from the complex tumult of a secular democracy towards hardening divisions of power, caste, and religious belief — lines that are enforced increasingly by violence.
