India and China have a shared history of over two thousand years. Culture always has a broader aspect: connecting people to people and establishing intellectual relations based on knowledge and wisdom between the world’s two great ancient civilisations, India and China. As a think tank since its inception in 2008, the Chennai Centre for China Studies (C3S) has recognised the significance of strengthening India-China people-to-people relations. From 2017-2019, C3S and partner think tanks organised annual International Cultural Conferences where experts shared historical lessons, contemporary insights, and indispensable foresight towards developing a structure leading to greater understanding and enhancement of inter-cultural links between India and China. C3S interviews were also conducted on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the founding of People’s Republic of China in 2019. In this book the editor shares outlook on India-China relations in through cultural prism including its potential in post-covid times.
