An Indian Civilizational Perspective

NPR’s On point Radio program on Delhi Rape and Public Protests

On Point’s Tom Ashbrook is one of the best radio interviewer in the world – with his in depth research and useful discussion.  Here is a blurb on the introduction to his piece on Delhi Rape and Protests

The agony of India over the brutal gang rape and murder of a young woman on the streets of New Delhi has been something to behold. Hundreds of thousands of Indians, men and women, in the streets. Decrying the attack and a government and police blind eye to sexual harassment and violence that may have promoted it.

Sexual violence happens everywhere in the world. But the furious response in India to the Delhi attack suggests a special problem here.  This hour, On Point: India, up in arms over a murderous rape. The treatment of women and the uproar in India.

This discussion anchored by Tom Ashbrook was joined by the following:

Anand Giridharadas, writes the “Currents” column for the New York Times. Author of “India Calling: An Intimate Portrait of a Nation’s Remaking.”

Sonia Faleiro, Indian author, her op-ed “The Unspeakable Truth About Rape in India” was published in the New York Times last Wednesday. Author of “Beautiful Things: Inside the Secret World of Bombay’s Dance Bars.”
