For non-Indians, the challenge of writing about India is often fraught with the prospect of a critical reception. Yet such writing arguably offers a fresh perspective and new insights. Is India uniquely difficult to write about when you are perceived as an outsider? The event will highlight the intricate challenges in reporting as explorers, with a discussion by a panel of highly regarded speakers: Michael Wood, Patrick French, Roy Moxham, Alex von Tunzelmann and Salil Tripathi (moderator).
