Gurcharan Das on "The Difficulty of Being Good"

Thursday, Oct. 28, 2010

Author and former Managing Director of Procter & Gamble Worldwide Gurcharan Das visited the Center last week to talk about his most recent book, The Difficulty of Being Good: On the Subtle Art of Dharma. (podcast)

Das draws on the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata, to explore dharma, which deals with the basic principle of the universe and how a person may act in conformity with it.  He argues that dharma, which is a pragmatic notion, is a useful approach to the kind of governance failures he observes in the world today.
