3rd K.Mahipathi Rao Memorial Lecture by Gurcharan Das09 January 2013 / by The CampusEra (author)
The Third K.Mahipathi Rao memorial lecture was held on the 7th January 2013 at the India Habitat Centre, Delhi-IHC. The Chief Guest for the evening was famous Author, commentator and public intellectual Mr. Gurcharan Das who spoke on his latest book “India Grows at Night”. The lecture was organized by KMR Foundation and the Sreenidhi International School Management.
Mr. Gurcharan Das shared his thoughts on his new book, “India Grows at Night” a liberal case for a strong India, for a strong leadership and system that ensures swift governance and justice. He took the audience on a wonderful, interactive tour of how the book draws from the original conception of the liberal state, essentially a product of the enlightenment thought process and is timely as the country seems to be embroiled in an endless web of financial irregularities and political uncertainties. A strong undercurrent of the principle of 'Eminent Domain', the expropriation action of the United States government, runs in Das' work – one where government acts quickly and decisively. Das' work is rooted in the enlightenment philosophy of 18th century thinkers like Adam Smith and John Locke.
The family of Mr. K.Mahipathi Rao, the daughter Ms. Humaira Mahi welcomed and spoke about the KMR foundation while the son Mr. Jawahar Mahipathi Rao delivered the vote of thanks along with the other son Dr Mahhe, Chairman Sree Group and family.
