Governor of Kerala, Arif Mohammad Khan, will deliver a lecture on 'Bharatiyata' ( Indianness) at the International Centre Goa (ICG), Dona Paula on Thursday, April 6, 2023 at 5.30 pm.

The talk is being organised jointly by the International Centre Goa and Bika Utsav.

Speaking to the mediapersons on Monday, media expert, Anil Gupta said, “A civilised form of discussion is not happening on the subject of ‘Bharatiyata’. Bharatiyata is a very important subject in these difficult times in our country and there is a need for civilised discussion on the same.”

He further added that the idea behind organising this talk is to enable Indians to freely express their views on what this concept means to them via the method of “Sabya-Sanvaad” ( civilised discourse).

President of ICG and spokesperson, Yatin Kakodkar said that the Governor was no stranger to the ICG or Goa. “The Honourable Governor has been an active participant in the 'Difficult Dialogues' events that have been held regularly at the ICG in recent years. The Governor is a very learned and articulate speaker and we are looking forward to his talk,” Kakodkar said.
