An executive seminar and discussion on India’s capabilities for dealing with terrorism is to be held at the Bombay Grill’s Kitchen, an Indian restaurant in Chamblee, on Tuesday, Dec. 23, from 6-8:30 p.m.

Last month’s attacks in Mumbai, India, have placed the terrorism issue “firmly back onto the center stage of the Indian strategic discourse,” according to the invitation for the event titled, “Assessing India’s Counter Terrorism Preparedness After Mumbai Attacks.”

“It is sobering to remember that worldwide, India is second only to Iraq in terms of violent attacks and total numbers of dead and injured since 2004. So have these blasts finally forced India out of its complacency?” says the invitation from the U.S. India Business and Research Center; Asia program, Center for International Trade and Security, University of Georgia and the Georgia Tech Center for International Business, Education and Research.

In addition, the invitation says that the event is to provide details on India’s on-going cooperation on counter-terrorism with the United States and Israel, and also address the issue of how India might alter its current and longer-term engagement with Pakistan.

The panelists are to included Anupam Srivastava, director, Asia program, at the Center for International Trade and Security, University of Georgia; Reda Mansour, consul general of Israel to the Southeast U.S.;

John R. McIntyre, director of the Georgia Tech Center for International Business Education and Research; B. Prasad, an academic expert on disaster management in India and Ani Agnihotri, founder of the U.S. India Business and Research Center in Atlanta.

The Georgia-Indo American Chamber of Commerce; the American Jewish Committee, Atlanta chapter; Indo-Jewish Dialogue and the Southern Center for International Studies are supporters of the event.
