Program Description

Event Details

In TV commercials and glossy tourism campaigns, it’s “Incredible India.” To historian and journalist David Mould, it’s a sub-continent so diverse that it defies description—simply inexplicable. India is an epic of epics, spanning thousands of years—of war and conquest, of the rise and fall of great civilizations, of architecture, literature, and art, of migration and settlement, of commerce with Asia, Europe and Africa. Faced with crowds, poverty, pollution, traffic congestion, crime and heat, some people find India too much to bear. But if you’re prepared to take India for what it is—often messy and disorganized, occasionally dangerous and always unpredictable—you will be well rewarded, and relish its smells, sounds, sights, culture and people.

David Mould, a professional journalist and retired professor, is a seasoned traveler of the Orient, especially Central Asia and countries bordering the Indian Ocean.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Athens Public Library.
