Award winning writer William Dalrymple, author of The Last Mughal and From the Holy Mountain, has lived in and written about India for over twenty-five years.  His latest book, Nine Lives: In Search of the Sacred in Modern India, examines how ancient religious traditions are surviving and in many cases being adapted for a rapidly changing India.  Then, in celebration of Romantic composer Gustav Mahler’s 150thbirthday, Martin Goldsmith, host of Sirius XM’s Symphony Hall, explains the great composer’s life and music.
