• Hamsini Hariharan

All Quiet on the Western Front?



This is Episode 18 of the The Pragati Podcast, hosted by Hamsini Hariharan and Pavan Srinath.

With the impeachment of Pakistani President Nawaz Sharif and India’s preoccupation with the Doklam standoff, little of the national mindspace is being occupied by Pakistan. To weigh in on current relations with our western neighbour, Ambassador TCA Raghavan joins Hamsini Hariharan.


Ambassador Raghavan is the former High Commissioner of India to Singapore and Pakistan. His second book, the People Next Door is an anecdotal chronicle of India s strange and often obsessive relationship with its neighbour.
