Launch of Arjun Gaind’s Anatomy of a Loss, followed by a discussion on How the echoes of history shape lives

Historic wounds never fade away completely. Distanced from the immediacy of the events the memories seem to be vanishing for younger generations – or so it would seem. However, they continue to bubble away underneath  and every so often rise to the surface. Through works of fiction and non-fiction three authors examine some of the epochal moments in modern India’s history and their lingering effects on people’s lives.
