The India Platform director, Prof. Balagangadhara, was invited to speak in a radio show hosted by Ms. Chantal Pattyn on Klara. The occasion was the Indomania exhibition organized in the framework of Europalia. Prof. Balagangadhara discussed the European perception of India through the years and what this perception tells us about Europe. He reflected on the cultural shortcomings of Western culture and its inability to see the strengths of Indian culture. He pointed out the growing unhappiness and depression in European societies, in particular, and suggested that Indian traditions can help remedy these problems because they have important insights to offer into the human psyche and human suffering. The interview received many positive reactions.
