If Swaraj is your birthright, do you have it? What does Swaraj even mean? Do we have different concepts of self-rule? And how do we even spell the word — sva or swa?

Aakash Singh Rathore joins hosts Hamsini Hariharan and Pavan Srinath to discuss his conception of ‘Thin Svaraj’ on Episode 58 of The Pragati Podcast.

Aakash is the Director of the International Research Network for Religion and Democracy, and was formerly a Visiting Professor at the Centre for Philosophy, Jawaharlal Nehru University. He has four upcoming books on Indian political theory, Indian jurisprudence, feminism and other topics that will be released later this year.
