It examines the tension between tradition and modernity, the impact on individual aspirations, and the unique cultural heritage of this ancient city. Radhika Iyengar is an Indian journalist, writer, and recipient of the Charles Wallace India Trust fellowship in 2020. The event will also cover her engagement with the UK and the British Council throughout her journey.
