Public Lecture 12: Soumitro Ghosh: Thoughts and Works

Wed 3 Feb - Wed 3 Feb' 16

Public Lecture 12Soumitro Ghosh discussed different ways Indian cities have and are still transforming. He used the changes in Bollywood (the most widely accessible and culturally influential media in India) as a metaphor and compared the great shift in the depiction of culture in Bollywood, with the vast changes in landscape of Indian cities. He goes on to critique the growth of cities in India with emphasis on the failure of people to harmonize with nature to create a better dwelling.
