Title: Perspectives: Hindu Values in Select Indian Literature and Film

Hinduism, although a mode of life, has been narrowed down into the context of a religion. A key point in Hinduism is a value system that is secular and open. The presenter would like to open a discussion –using illustrations from literature and film – as to how inclusive/exclusive these values in a county like India are, given the factor of diversity, heterogeneity, and plurality.
