Thinking with Ghalib:Two economists using Ghalib’s poetry as a lens to view life in the 21st century
The Gurmani Centre for Languages & Literature has delighted to hosted a discussion on Thinking with Ghalib, a book written by two economists to provoke thinking with the help of Ghalib. As economists, the authors were interested in having their students think about universal ethics, contemporary realities, and human relationships. They have found Ghalib to be an ideal resource because of his playful style of asking profound questions without providing any obvious answers. Ghalib has been appropriated in the service of social science and dragged into the midst of our everyday lives.
