The Political Science Department held a lecture by Dr. Rinku Lamba on the 12th of August. Lamba is a professor at JNU and has been published in various journals and papers such as the Max Weber working paper series, OUP etc. Dr. Lamba explored the topic ‘laws of love vs. manmade laws’.
The lecture encompassed issues of justice and love as conceived by Gandhi and Ambedkar. Through the course of the talk we learnt about various ideological similarities between Ambedkar and Gandhi and tried to grapple with questions of duty and pleasure, love and dependency.
