Jay Sarkar is Senior Lecturer in Economic and Social History at the University of Glasgow and the Founding Director of the Global Decolonization Initiative. We spoke to Jay about how the history of India’s first nuclear weapons test in 1974 has been overshadowed by their 1998 nuclear tests, why the conventional wisdom that India started off its nuclear program with nuclear energy first is in fact incorrect, and the strong connections between India’s nuclear program and their space program.
