Radio Documentary
India Rising (Now Available)
Produced by the Stanley Foundation with KQED Public Radio and KUT Austin

India Rising logo
The Mumbai attacks were a well-coordinated strike on India's economy, its internationalism, its pluralism, its openness.

Now this nuclear-armed nation, the world's biggest democracy, faces a historic challenge—one that will test its mettle and shape its role on the world stage.

Released in March 2009, veteran public radio journalist David Brown takes listeners on a journey around this potential superpower: "India Rising."

"India Rising"—produced by Simon Marks, Kristin McHugh, and Keith Porter—is a Stanley Foundation production in association with KQED Public Radio and KUT Austin.

The full program is available as an mp3 file here. A complete transcript is available here. Individual program segments are also available as MP3 files via the following links:

More on India's role in the changing global order is available here.

Watch or listen to a promotional preview of "India Rising." 

For radio stations, the full program along with promotional materials are now available on PRX.
