Title:EP-65 | India’s unique ideological/political spectrum explained by Kushal Mehra & Hindol Sengupta

With the war of narratives picking pace like anything after Modi coming to power in 2014, the left vs. right divide has only escalated, and now it is being claimed that history is being rewritten for political benefits. As the long push of the conservative right wing is finally being heard, this war of narratives has flown down from many places to India, where it now finds space. Is this an attempt to divide Indian society? In this episode of Podcast with Smita Prakash, we bring two experts to discuss the subject with their in-depth knowledge. Author and journalist Hindol Sengupta has penned 10 books on history, mythology, among others, and is the first Indian to win the Wilbur Award for his book ‘Being Hindu’. He is accompanied by Podcaster and social commentator Kushal Mehra. In this articulated podcast with Smita Prakash, the panel discusses whether or not the transition in history writing is bringing a divide in Indians, examines the western bias against India by foreign academia and India’s growth story. #Podcast #ANIPodcastWithSmitaPrakash #SmitaPrakash The full episode is also available here: Apple Podcasts: Spotify: Google Podcasts: Amazon Music: Linktree: Timestamps: 00:00- Introduction 02:32- On conservative right wing narrative & US caste system 15:56- Pro-Khalistan protest & India's vishwaguru approach 29:33- Debate over nationalism & Islam in India 37:33- Trouble faced for 'Being Hindu' & New narrative by historians today 42:42- Primacy of religion in public discourse 47:55- Role of Social media & Indian news media 56:22- Recent development in India, Indian elites & Claims of Journalists 01:10:15- British- America Academic system & Hindu studies 01:22:20- Drawbacks of Indian academic discourse 1:32:14- Connectivity with North East India 1:35:34- Difference between India and West Subscribe now and press the bell icon 🔔 to get new video updates: -------------------------------------- ANI is South Asia's leading Multimedia News Agency providing content for every information platform, including TV, Internet, broadband, newspapers, and mobiles.
