At the dawn of dusk in New Delhi on January 30, 1948, three gunshots punctuated the silence of the evening and tore into the torso of the man walking towards the podium of the prayer meeting to address a large crowd gathered to hear him. As Mahatma Gandhi's body crumpled towards the ground, he is believed to have famously hailed his favourite divinity words, "He Ram," the last he apparently spoke in a lifetime that produced numerous utterances much evoked in India. Building on this scholarship, Prof. Sumathi Ramaswamy's presentation pivoted from word to image to consider the manner in which this dying moment has been claimed by India's visual artists accross a range of media ranging from poster art to graphic cartoon to modernist art and the movies.

The project builds on a series of funded field experiments in Delhi, designed to determine whether math-related educational games can play a beneficial role in children’s success in primary school.  The overall goal of the proposed project is to develop a rich theoretical understanding of why the games are effective, which would be useful both for future interventions in India and to answer theoretical questions about how gesture and language can contribute to learning.
