Speaking of the City with K Annamalai
Sunday, 20th October, 2019, 6.00pm to 7.30pm
“Citizens in Charge of governance? An insider’s take”
By Supercop K Annamalai

About the speaker:

Supercop. The singham of Karnataka police. The people-friendly cop. Every epithet given to K Annamalai highlights the humanitarian attitude he brought to a tough job. He has quit his post and is currently serving his notice period. But his passion for public service remains undiminished, and the government’s loss promises to become the people’s gain.

Annamalai has also been commissioned by Bloomsbury to write a memoir titled The agents of change: How a life in khaki unmade me.

About the series:

Bangalore’s World-Famous Semi-Deluxe Writing Program sponsors a bi-monthly curated talk called “Speaking of the City” at Shoonya. Writers, artists, journalists, scholars, architects, scientists, entrepreneurs, historians, geographers, activists or anyone who has worked on and for Bangalore is invited to speak of this city.

These are free talks for the students and alumni of the program and for the general public.

The inaugural talk in the series, in July 2017, was given by historian Ramachandra Guha whose discussion about his life and work in Bangalore drew a packed house. Subsequently, the series has featured writers Anita Nair, Jayant Kaikini, Lavanya Shankaran, Roshan Ali, Vasudhendra, Vivek Shanbhag and; philanthropist and social activist Rohini Nilekani; editors and journalists Sugata Srinivasaraju, Vikhar Ahmed Sayeed, and Mukund Padmanabhan; urbanist and architect Naresh Narasimhan, and popular historian Maya Jayapal.

These talks have analysed the city from various angles personal and public, thereby contributing to an oral history of south Indian urban life.
