Converciti Podcasts bring you insights and observations from the sharpest minds around the planet on the most seminal issues of our times. This is where we challenge conventional wisdom, take a deep dive into politics, culture, and economics, and play gracefully with ideas.
On our latest episode, we are back with our Kolkata coterie of young speakers to dissect the nature of the Indian Republic, featuring Soham Chakraborty, Shireen Gupta, Yashoroop Poopa Dey, Samriddha Dutta, and Oishik Banerjee, moderated by Priyam Marik.
What would have happened had Mahatma Gandhi or Netaji been alive at the time of the adoption of the Constitution of India? What values of the Indian Republic would our speakers have envisaged differently? How can agriculture and industrialisation truly become vehicles of democratic progress in India? What are the hidden merits of anti-majoritarianism and an “aristocratic” spirit? All this, and much more, as we try to unravel Whose Republic Is It Anyway!
