About The Event

The Royal Oak Balmain - 36 College St
Balmain, NSW 2041 Australia
Tuesday, June 14, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

John Zubrzycki in conversation with Satyajit Das

From Alexander the Great crossing the Indus, to plotting Mughal emperors; from English colonisation and the East India Company, to the legacy of Gandhi; from ancient Buddhist practice to modern day Bollywood – John Zubrzycki, former foreign news editor with The Australian, tackles them all in a sweeping, entertaining and concise history of the rising global superpower of India.

Join him on Tuesday 14 June in conversation with Satyajit Das, a globally respected former banker, nominated by Bloomberg as one of the fifty most influential financial thinkers in the world.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by booking a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain’s oldest and best-known pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

The Shortest History of India will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Zubrzycki following the discussion.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
