Bringing up your child and taking care of your environment are quite similar. Yet many of us, stay ignorant and continue our path to consumption.

Its like drinking water from a glass of water incessantly,once the glass is empty where will you quench your thirst from?

GBX 33 - Parental Guidance

Podcast cover
Read more

In India, there is a strong case of a need to educate parents before we worry about the kids. Don’t we? There are many well-heeled, highly educated, well-travelled, so called liberal progressive minded, parents - who wait at the exit gate of the school to check the marks after every result of assessment is declared, only to then lament publicly, on how the competitive world has no space for a mediocre 98%,  while the kid with their head down walks slowly behind the parent utterly humiliated ,dejected and their confidence wrecked.

Join me in this fascinating podcast where I share 10 questions - to make you rethink your parenting.

GBX 26 - Sushant Singh Rajput Media Trial

Podcast cover
Read more

Just a few years ago  the media went berserk over pronouncing the Talvar's guilty. And then when they were acquitted , the same noise makers were no where to be found. Yet again with Mr.Rajput's case the noise is back with extra vigour and ferocity but with the same blatant biases, as was the case earlier.

Guilty or Innocent is a debate to be done in a court of law, but instead, there is a trial by media on display.

They become the judge, jury and the executioner and influence a generation of people by their rhetorics steeped in personal biases.

Join me in this experience where we separate the wheat from the chaff and understand what it takes to be neutral and objective.
