Wisdom and Ethic of Ancient India

Program by :

Yesterday afternoon the events room at Pavilion of Tibetan Cuture was fully packed with all those who wished to listen to an inspiring lecture by Michel Danino on “Can Ancient India help today’s India?”. In a very compact, yet packed with facts, lecture Michel offered some aspects of ancient (or not so) India in governance, environment management, education, ethics… and their applicability to today’s lifestyle and polity. India, despite colonization, still stands firm in their uniqueness of enveloping the unity in diversity up to today; where concepts of minority and majority take it’s own stand (or not take stand at all).
Since the audience was reluctant to leave, and thirsty for more, Michel Danino has answered some questions.
The event was made in collaboration of the French Pavilion and Pavilion of Tibetan Culture.

Michel Danino (born June 4, 1956) is an Indian author, originally from France.
He participated in the translation and publication of the works of Sri Aurobindo and of The Mother. Danino also edited India’s Rebirth (a selection from Sri Aurobindo’s works about India, first published in 1993) and India the Mother (a selection from the Mother’s works about India). He engaged himself also for the preservation of tropical
rainforest in the Nilgiri Hills. In 2001, he convened the International Forum for India’s Heritage (IFIH) with the mission of promoting the essential values of India’s heritage in every field of life.

At present, he’s a guest professor at IIT Gandhinagar and a member of the Indian Council of Historical Research. On 25 January 2017, Government of India announced “Padma Shri” award for his contribution towards Literature & Education.
