About india ink
We know India can be crazy and hard to understand. We're here to help!
India Ink is run by the students of Georgetown University with a keen focus on India and South Asia. It is a one-stop blog on India, its politics, and its ties with the world. We bring you experts from India and Washington D.C. to create a unique mix of regional and international perspectives on all things India. From the Hilltop in D.C. we interact with the leading India and South Asia analysts, diplomats, politicians, and visiting dignitaries to bring you the most comprehensive and informed viewpoints. We put this all together with opinions, commentary, and interviews to help you navigate the complex landscape of the world's largest democracy.
The India Ink Community
India Ink is a community of students and scholars at Georgetown and DC working on issues of India and South Asia. We invite you to join us in our journey and expand this community into a hub of India related analysis. We believe that the aggregation of thoughts on India Ink is only the first step in building dialogue. We aspire to bring together our contributors in a physical setting in the future to not only exchange ideas and collaborate on research but also to meet the future leaders of the region.
