The D. S. Borker Lecture Series on “My Vision of India: 2047 A.D.” is a civil society initiative and was instituted in 1999. The lecture is held every year in the memory of D. S. Borker (1911-1979), Civil Servant and Public Sector Administrator, on August 24 at IIC-Deshmukh Auditorium, New Delhi. The idea behind the series is to strengthen our secular democratic values and traditions and encourage the process of thinking regarding the kind of India we want in 2047 – a hundred years after our independence from colonialism. This series is unique in that it has consistently showcased ideas and forward-looking agendas, often contrarian ideas and agendas, across a remarkable spectrum. Debate, after all, is an intrinsic and invaluable part of a democratic and secular India.
