Issue 2

Published in January 1976, the second issue of India Forum focused explicitly on emergency rule in India, with two articles on the subject: "The Congress Dictatorship in India," and "The Economy and the Emergency." The cover includes a caption that was lifted from Far Eastern Economic Review (October 24, 1975): "Freedom from hunger is more important for most than freedom of speech. But to have neither would be the ultimate assault on the humanity of India." The cover photograph is explained on the back cover: "squatters' huts on Colaba land-fill with the modern high-rise of Nariman Point in the background (Bombay, 1973)."
