SICHREM in conjunction with the Indian Social Institute held the 8th monthly human rights discourse. The topic for discussion was “The Psychology of Torture: Democratization for Constructing Cultures of Peace”.
The speaker Nananda Reddy, challenged the audience to reflect inwards and question their own capacity for compassion and selflessness.
Using the film Schindler’s List as the paradigm by which to judge our won morality she asked us to question whether we are the compassionate Oscar Schindler or the masochistic SS guard.
It was a thought provoking talk, which motivated all present to spend some time of introspection and reflection in the hours that followed. We thank the speaker and all those who came. We look forward to seeing you all next month.
