Amit Bhaduri is an economist and a consistent critic of mainstream
neoclassical economic theory.  He exposes its logically flawed foundations
-  including ‘corporate-led growth strategies’ and ‘developmental
terrorism’,  ideas that have emerged in India and other developing

In his film "Muzaffarnagar Baaqi Hai", documentarian Nakul Singh Sawhney
examines the 2013 communal riots in Shamli and Muzaffarnagar districts of
western Uttar Pradesh, India, in which antagonism between local Hindu Jats
and Muslims were fomented by BJP to gain political foothold in the area
before the 2014 Parliamentary elections.  Riots resulted in over 100 deaths
and 80,000 homeless.

The director of the film will be present for Q and A after the show.
