Panel Discussions

There are various panel discussions to be held at IIC during this event which are woven around World War II; Bengal Famine, the CBI campaign and the Great Game.

The Other Silk Route: Spookery, Trade and the Great Game

Joining the panel are writers and academics who have followed the Silk Route and how this ancient trading route became the most critical passage for espionage by the great powers.

The Game of Thrones: China-Burma-India Campaign of WW II

Journalists and researchers on the war will look at many of the lesser known facts. The Jungle queen Ursula Bower who was working with the Zeme Nagas in Assam's North Cachar Hills was asked to rate a guerrilla unit to fight the Japanese forces. Bower's daughter Catriona Child will join the panel to reveal interesting less-known facts and information. Joining her on the panel will be Kai Friese, who trekked to places where American war planes crashed and tracked hump pilots around the world. Hemant Katoch the founder of the Imphal Battle Tours will share his research on the war.

Venue: Rooms I to III, Kamladevi Complex, IIC
Timing: 2 PM to 4 PM on Feb 3

Beyond the Bengal Famine

This panel discussion will begin with the screening of Bengal Shadows, a just released documentary followed by a discussion moderated by Shiv Visvanathan who will be in conversation with Paris based filmmaker Partho Bhattacharya. British rule in India is bookended by two massive famines in Bengal. Shiv Visvanathan asks was it even a purely localized Bengal famine or were its effects felt further afield? What was the real cost of these millions of deaths from mass starvation and why is it an almost forgotten episode of history?

Venue: Rooms I to III, Kamladevi Complex, IIC
Timing: 3:45 PM to 6 PM on Feb 2
