Akash Kapur: A Portrait of Modern India
Through an array of fascinating real-life characters, Akash Kapur tells the sweeping story of India's great leap toward modernity. From a cow-broker to a call-center employee to a feudal landowner and others, the subjects of the stories in his new book India Becoming illuminate some of the biggest themes of our age - rapid economic development, social inequality, environmental depredation, the rise of emerging markets, and the rebalancing of the global order. Says Philip Gourevitch: "His voice is as sure and as intimate as his subject is chaotic and immense." Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
