Reclaiming the Gita | BIC Streams
Rohit Chopra in conversation with Salil Tripathi on the significance and role of the Gita, religion, and tradition in the contemporary world.

Examining the challenges posed by the present-day global order—-including political instability, the rise of authoritarianism, the epidemic of fake news and subversion of democracy through the weaponization of social media, the backlash against the rights of caste, ethnic, or racial minorities, and climate change—the dialogue will address what the Gita may offer in helping us respond to such demands and where it may fall silent. How, for instance, might we reconcile the endorsement of patriarchy and a hierarchical caste order in the Gita with modern day notions of rights, justice, and dignity? The discussion will also speak to the urgent need for evaluating the Gita on the basis of a framework of public reason rather than of religious authority.
