ASHIS NANDY, a leading figure in postcolonial studies, has been described as “India’s most formidable and controversial intellectual, its most arresting thinker, and a cultural and political critic without perhaps any equal in South Asia.” His published works include The Intimate Enemy: Loss and Recovery of Self Under Colonialism, The Savage Freud, The Philosophy of Coca Cola, the Tao of Cricket, and, most recently, Time Warps: Silent and Evasive Pasts in Indian Politics and Religion. In 2007 he appeared on the list of the Top 100 Public Intellectuals Poll of Foreign Policy magazine. This Lecture has been supported by the Mohindar Brar Sambhi Endowed Fund for Indian Music.
