The topic will be "Global Conflicts and Indian Responses".
Did you know that more than 85% of India is today self-employed?
Did you know that World Bank in its World Development Report stated that Community based informal credit networks created by those like Gounders in Tirupur were seen as more reliable than banks?
There are many more interesting facts which Professor Vaidyanathan explains in his seminal paper which was published in 2009 for Eternal India. This paper is one of its kind. This paper lists three major conflicts afflicting the world today and explains in detail how India should strategize in confronting these conflicts.
The paper could be found here. Please do read this as a backgrounder to Jijnasa Interactive Session on 28th with Professor Vaidyanathan.
As we posted on this blog before, this session is going to be telecast live via Ustream. Details here.
