India's Bazaar of Ideas

What are the ideas that are animating contemporary India as well as the ideas that established that nation but are now said to be superseded? Was Gandhi India’s greatest traveller and how did Narendra Modi move himself from the dangerous fringe to occupy power at the center. Today we speak to a novelist and political commentator. He is the author of “Arzee The Dwarf”, the editor of an anthology of Indian fiction “India: A Traveller’s Literary Companion” and a columnist with Bloomberg Views.
