    Title: The Game of Thrones: China-Burma-India Campaign of WW II


    The jungle war that was the China-Burma-India campaign of the Second World War was the most unconventional, colourful and dramatic of battles. Marked by internecine squabbles and political intrigues, and coupled with enormous stakes, neither the Allies nor the Axis powers were willing to let go of this front. From the heroic transport flights over the “Hump” of the Himalayas to drop supplies to the Chinese resistance to the most prodigious engineering feats of the Manipur and Ledo Roads, this battle was amongst the fiercest and demanded ingenuity at all levels. Who were these mavericks and why were the powers so desperate to control this front? What was really at stake in this, till recently, little acknowledged and yet critical, theatre of war

    Adil Hussain, well-known Indian stage, television and film actor from Assam in conversation with Kishalay Bhattacherjee


    South Asia and South East Asia between themselves comprise two of the most populous regions of the world. The region is fractious and studies on it are primarily driven by disasters and conflict. India’s Northeast is one such area until not long back marginal to Indian history, that has been caught in the throes of imperial expansion, nationalism, partition, isolation and dependence in the 20th century. Second in the series organised in collaboration with the National Foundation for India (NFI) and curated by journalist and author, Kishalay Bhattacharjee, hopes to shed light on the people and places that are caught in these larger forces and bridge at least some gaps in understanding between and within the two regions
