India Through Her Eyes

Award-winning independent journalist Priyanka Borpujari recently spoke at Nazareth about “The Human Cost to India’s Race for Development.” Based in Mumbai, India, she documents human rights abuses around her country, but is currently here in the United States on a prestigious fellowship. Nazareth student writer Amy Gallo sat down with Borpujari before her lecture for a Q&A session.
