Hrishikesh Choudhari India Presentation

1,695 views

Published on

I presented this keynote on the April 22nd, 2009 in my Capitalism and Democracy class in Champlain College, USA. This keynote gives a small update in the current situation in India, since many of my fellow students were fed wrong and misleading information by the Western media. This is a small attempt by me to provide a clear view to my friends in America by one of their peers.
