Join Ashis Nandy (Political Psychologist and Cultural Theorist, Senior Fellow and former Director, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi) at A/P/A Institute as he gives a talk on his latest research and analysis on the decades of ethnic violence in post-partition India and Pakistan. His work is defined by oscillations between two diametrically opposite domains of social existence: human potentialities or creativity and human destructiveness.
