Award-winning journalist Somini Sengupta emigrated from Calcutta as a child and grew up in California. Thirty years later, she returned to India as the first Indian-American bureau chief for The New York Times. The foreign correspondent just debuted her new book The End of Karma: Hope and Fury Among India's Young, a personal exploration of the people of India. Sengupta comes to Santa Clara University's Music Recital Hall to discuss the ways in which her home country is dealing with issues relating to economic opportunity, gender equality and civil liberties. This Commonwealth Club-sponsored conversation is hosted by BBC Contributor Alison van Diggelen, best known for her interview series "Fresh Dialogues."
