The world today is broadly organised into sovereign nation states, and we all believe that the Indian Nation exists and is thriving. But what is nationalism, at its core? How did nationalism really evolve in Europe, and are ideas like Indian nationalism and Tamil nationalism quite the same? Dr AP Ashwin Kumar joins us on Episode 99 of The Pragati Podcast to unpack nationalism, language and identity.

The Pragati Podcast is a weekly talkshow on public policy, economics and international relations hosted by Pavan Srinath. Starting this week, The Pragati Podcast will be airing every Wednesday instead of every Thursday.
