In the Footsteps of Spectres: Walking the Dandi path in present-day Gujarat – an interaction with Harmony Siganporia and Tridip Suhurud
About the event: Harmony Siganporia retraced the route of Gandhi’s salt march from Dandi to Ahmedabad, i.e, in reverse, in the February of 2019. She traversed this route of just under 400 kms over 25 days, much as Gandhi and his original Marchers did in 1930. Against this setting, she explores the story of modern Gujarat, tracing the state’s profound shift towards the narrative of “vikas”. This project investigates what remains of the Salt March in modern Gujarat’s cultural memory. Harmony Siganporia is an Associate Professor in the area of Culture and Communication at MICA, a Ph.D in social history. Tridip Suhrud is a scholar, writer, and translator who works on the intellectual and cultural history of modern Gujarat and the Gandhian intellectual tradition and has written works like a critical edition of Gandhi’s autobiography My Experiments with Truth in two languages- Gujarati and English.
