Summary
Eqbal Ahmad, a leading authority on colonialism and nationalism, asserts that "a nation is hard to define because it is an ideology based on identity, and identity constantly changes. And he should know, having once traveled 900 miles from his village in India to resettle in Pakistan as part of the 1947 Muslim exodus. This program engages Professor Ahmad in a retrospective investigation of the politico-religious ideals that led to the formation of India and Pakistan as he travels once again, 49 years later, the Grand Trunk Road
