Our guest is Sanjay Subrahmanyam, Distinguished Professor at UCLA and professor at the Collège de France in Paris. He has authored numerous books including "Europe's India: Words, People, Empires", which has been translated into French.

"Europe's India" does this by focusing on first-hand accounts of European travellers in India at the time. Sanjay Subrahmanyam tells us more.
