Many Americans still think of India only in terms of an "exotic land" of many religions, non-violent resistance, reverence for the cow, the home of the Taj Mahal, persistent malnutrition and infectious disease. It is time to recognize that we must change our perception of India to focus on a fundamental new reality: India is emerging as a global economic, educational, scientific and strategic partner for the United States. Today’s speaker is the director of the Pitt-In-India Study Abroad Program and an expert in the religion, history and art of South and East Asia. Do not miss his fascinating insights into India’s ascendance on the global economic and cultural landscape.
