Nehruvian Socialism and What Needs to be Done: A Lecture at Cambridge University
A highlight of Satheesan’s visit is a lecture at the prestigious Cambridge University, scheduled for November 17 at the South Asian Students’ Hall. Titled “Revival of Nehruvian Socialism and its Means,” the discourse seeks to reassess the relevance of Nehruvian Socialism in the contemporary era and explore the necessary steps for its revival. Jawaharlal Nehru, a pivotal figure in India’s history during the mid-20th century, will be referenced for his contributions to anti-colonial nationalism, secular humanism, and social democracy.
As the chief guest in the debate, organised in collaboration with the Cambridge Students’ Union, Satheesan’s speech is poised to contribute significantly to discussions on the resurgence of Nehruvian Socialism. The event anticipates uniting diverse perspectives and fostering meaningful discussions on the contemporary relevance of this political and social ideology.
