Journalist Speaks at Nazareth on Human Cost to India's Race for

Start Date: Jan. 30, 2013
Time: 7:00 PM

Award-winning independent journalist Priyanka Borpujari is bringing her very-timely message on “The Human Cost to India’s Race for Development” to Nazareth College during a lecture and photo exhibit of her work. Based in Mumbai, India, she documents human rights abuses around her country and will talk about how India’s mad race for development has adverse effects on the population. Her lecture is Wednesday, January 30, in the Nazareth College Shults Center Forum at 7 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Nazareth College is located at 4245 East Avenue, Rochester, N.Y., 14618. For more information, contact Kathy Hansen in Nazareth’s Center for International Education at (585) 389-2673 or khansen7@zimbra.naz.edu. While India is perceived as an emerging market, Borpujari will speak about the dark territories of mineral-rich India, rife with violence and disease. She says in the race to make India a superpower, social inequality has reached its zenith. What is the future of the people who grow food with their hands, who have been guarding the forests and rivers? She investigates the “hidden civil war in India” and why most media shy away from reporting about the majority of its populace.
