Speaker: Prof. G.N. Devy, former Professor of English, MS University, Baroda, cultural activist and tribal scholar, Chief Editor, People’s Linguistic Survey of India

Chair: Prof. Muchkund Dubey, President, Council for Social Development

The lecture discusses the thought processes that go into the new definition of crime, looking at historical backgrounds and current contexts. The lecture discusses the ‘idea of crime’ as was understood by the colonial government in India and also by subsequent governments. The theme of the lecture will highlight the gap that exists between the idea of crime and the idea of justice which needs to be bridged in the interest of deepening democracy in India
