Join Asia Society India Centre at Cheval for an evening of discussion and drinks with Samanth Subramanian, author of "This Divided Island", an intense and extraordinary account of contemporary Sri Lanka emerging from war.
Sri Lanka's long lasting civil war came to a denouement in 2009, but recent violence between religious communities threatens to undo the country's fragile peace. With much attention fixated on the tactical objectives of war, the human reality of the conflict escapes the limelight. What are the implications of the civil war on marginalized communities outside of major metropolitan areas? How have the geography and landscape of the country changed after decades of intense conflict?
Included in the price is a glass of wine and appetizers. While the event actually starts at 6:30pm, we think it's a good idea for Trabblrs to get there at 6pm to grab seats and introduce themselves to one another!
