Prof. Ramaswamy was a great teacher who loved to delve into students questions with a slight tendency to ramble but overal great teacher. About one homework assignment over the weekend which was always very doable.
Ramaswamy is a great professor but he also expects a lot from the students in return. It is a fun intellectual exchange. The class requires you to read a bunch write few essays and also look at india in the lens of data.
Professor Ramaswamy was super passionate about the subject and his lectures were very spontaneous and informing. It's essential to do the readings before class since he may not touch on every detail that may show up on the exam in class. Overall, it was a great course.
