Nandy also talks about the two forms of violence in India—mass violence and individualistic violence, and whether religions promote violence. He also shares his views about Orientalism, Salman Rushdie, and Mahatma Gandhi and his legacy; and analyses whether there is a Gandhian approach to India. In the course of this interview, Nandy also talks about Indira Gandhi and the Emergency; Gandhi and the critique of male dominance; womanhood in India; and sati in modern India.
