Belated Invite — Bangalore

Blog-readers in Bangalore are invited to an event at the Lecture Hall, National Institute for Advanced Studies (Indian Institute of Science campus) at 4 PM tomorrow (Friday, Oct 9) hosted jointly by NIAS and the Takshashila Institute. The event will lead off with the JRD Tata Professor at NIAS, Dr. Chandrashekhar and Nitin Pai, heading Takshashila, having a conversation with me on my new book published by Oxford University Press — ‘Why India is Not a Great Power (Yet)’. It will be followed by an interactive session with the audience, which is expected to have many from the DPSUs and serving and retired military community. It should be an interesting session. Those among you in the Bangalore area, do please consider this a personal invite.

    For those of us not in Bangalore, would it be possible for you to upload a video of the proceedings on this website, as and when you receive a copy? There are a few of us who are really interested and would be very grateful in that case. Thank you in advance.

  2. Not sure NIAS has videographing capability and, if they do, whether it’ll be used for this event.

      That’s too bad. I had attended a session by Mr. Shyam Saran in the same venue many years ago. That was to the best of my recollection a video graphed event so I just assumed this one would be too.
