Staying at Home,
Remaking the World

A rediscovery of life. How the lockdown can help people discover new things about themselves, take up new interests, realize what’s really important in life. Stillness, spirituality, environment. A greater focus on their inner world rather than the outer. Rethinking priorities and uncovering our second life

Of Loss and Longing

Based on this online release of Locking Down the Poor. The plight of our migrants has been reminiscent of partition and of Khushwant Singh’s book and film, Train to Pakistan. With desperate people walking with their belongings and taking nightmare train journeys.

Ten Lessons for a
Post Pandemic World

Hear it from Fareed’s new book out this week. One of the ‘top ten global thinkers of the last decade’, Ten Lessons for a Post Pandemic World foresees the political, social, technological and economic consequences that may take years to unfold. He covers the acceleration of natural and biological risks, the obsolescence of the old political categories of right and left, the rise of ‘digital life’, the future of digitalization, and an emerging world order. The future is truly in our own hands.
