QUEEN’S ROAD: Azim Premji University Colloquium Series presents a lecture on Ram Manohar Lohia who was an activist for the Indian independence movement and a nationalist political leader. This talk will attempt to contextualise Lohia’s distinctive thought on democratic politics. Focusing on the three distinct phases in his life i.e. his sojourn as a doctoral student in Berlin, his engagement with the freedom struggle in colonial India and his political career after the country’s independence, the talk will track the formation of his political theory of democracy with particular reference to the institutions of caste, language and gender.
