The FT's Victor Mallet on the Ganges

7:00 PM on Tuesday 30 January 2018

Victor Mallet, Asia news editor at the Financial Times and the paper's former South Asia bureau chief in New Delhi, will discuss his book "River of Life, River of Death: The Ganges and India's Future." Copies of his book will be available at a discounted rate of 450 INR.

The event will be moderated by Iain Marlow, an India correspondent for Bloomberg News.

Book synopsis: "India is killing the Ganges, and the Ganges in turn is killing India. The waterway that has nourished more people than any on earth for three millennia is now so polluted with sewage and toxic waste that it has become a menace to human and animal health."
