Mantra | Nikhil Chaudhary

25-May-2017 | 09:00 PM | The Stein Auditorium

Synopsis: the story of 1991, when India opened up its economy to the world, forever changing the landscape of the country. Mantra takes us through the period of India Shining, where an iconic Indian brand, KIng Chips is struggling to hold its own against a multinational giant, Kipper Crisps. Through the eyes of Kapil and his family, we see how business and politics were conducted in Old India, how that changed in the wake of 1991, but also - perhaps, most importantly - how there are some things about our country that will never change.
