The elephant in the room
A conversation with academics Upinder Singh and Maya Jasanoff, Gandhian Tridip Suhrud and historian Patrick French brought up some important questions on the state of violence and the violence of the State. Strangely, though, no one brought up the Padmaavat controversy that’s top of mind right now. The audience didn’t let the panel off the hook. A member pointed out the incongruity of having a discussion “On Violence” without mentioning the violence currently unfolding. Nobody seemed to have any clear cut answers .
