    EP19 - BUSINESS LEADERSHIP DECODED, the secrets to success with Anil Puri - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast

    Growing and sustaining a business, especially in the manufacturing industry, is a challenge. To do so in a place away from your native land, facing a variety of different variables, is inspiring. What vision does it take to achieve this? What role do ethics play in this long journey, and where do they lead? Can a Dharmic outlook offer some lessons and guidance in the world of manufacturing and commerce? We explore these aspects in this episode of The Vichaar Manthaan Podcast with Anil Ji Puri.

    Anil Ji is the Group Chairman of Purico Ltd., based in the UK. The company is an international manufacturing organization with interests in multiple sectors.

    EP18 - VEGANISM, a trend, a virtue, or a fad? with Dina Aherne - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast

    EP18 - VEGANISM, a trend, a virtue, or a fad? with Dina Aherne - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast

    “Veganism isn’t about the mock meat, about replacing life for life, veganism is about whole food and plant-based. So when we talk about vegan foods assisting your health, and giving you a multitude of health benefits, we are talking about pulses, lentils, rice, seeds, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. We are not talking about having fake chicken or fake meat every day…I know a lot of unhealthy vegans as well. There is a misconception that if you’re vegan, you’re healthy”

    A large component of our everyday lives is food. A number of ‘food fads’ have been in and out of fashion in recent years, with ongoing debates around food, health and choices, to the point where such choices are going beyond sustenance, to creating identities, labels, and political movements, and influencing public policies. Veganism, the lifestyle which avoids consuming animal-based products, is one such movement. Indeed, veganism goes beyond just food, to include every product we use. In this episode of The Vichaar Manthan podcast, we explore veganism with Dina Aherne.

    As she describes her almost-overnight transition to veganism, Dina Ji paints the entire landscape surrounding meat as a source of food, zooming out from the sanitised, convenient and easily available options in the markets today. She discusses veganism in the larger context, highlighting the often cruel practices of the animal breeding industry, and linking animal product consumption to the larger issues of global warming, and unsustainable growth. Even a small bit of awareness can create a shift toward a more sustainable, kinder society, and often this awareness is missing in the general public. The message she leaves us with is to think about the choices we make as consumers. And in doing so - reminding us that humans are inherently capable of compassion - compels us to consider whether they could include similar consideration towards the other members of the living world, as we show towards ourselves.

    EP17 - YOGA BUSINESS with Anand Parekh - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast

    EP17 - YOGA BUSINESS with Anand Parekh - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast

    Little & Often

    Yoga has become popular in the last decade, especially in the west, glamourised some would say, it's hip, cool, and sexy, it has benefited millions of people both physically and mentally, and claims not to be a new science, but a tried and tested method passed out from the depths of India. How do we take this ancient, multi-dimensional practice, which originated in a different land, imbibed with its own linguistic complexities and cultural and spiritual context, to the west and adapt it to our modern lives?

    Several yoga studios have emerged, and tend to be likened to gyms, where people flock to shed some kilos or get that movie-star figure. So is yoga only a set of postures and physical exercises? And does one not knowing its depth reduce the integrity of the practitioner? Where do we draw the line, where is it cultural appropriation and when is it simply not yoga anymore?

    In this episode of The Vichaar Manthan Podcast, we deep dive into the asanas and into the breathing techniques, with yogi Anand Parekh. We ask what Yoga means and its different aspects. Let’s find out what the practice of yoga brings into our lives and how it can be a powerful tool for transformation.

    Anand Ji Parekh grew up with a curiosity and an interest in Yoga. He worked full-time for eight years, before quitting corporate life to open his own Yoga studio in Nottingham, where he teaches and runs the business today.

    Panel Discussion at VMSN22 >> The End of Family - For Better or Worse?
    There have been many who have wanted to be rid of the family altogether, from the Greek philosopher and father of Western thought, Plato, to the radical Marx who wanted to build an egalitarian community. Then there has been Hindu thought, which has put family at the front and centre of civic life, a hallmark of its civilisation. As liberty and freedom spreads globally in conjunction with technology and affluence, what purpose, if any, will the family play in the decades to come? What will be the consequences for human well-being if the family unit dissolves or becomes irrelevant? How would we find what Erich Fromm called ‘rootedness’ in our childhood without a strong foundation provided by the family? Join us to discover what a sustainable model for the family of the future entails.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Panel Discussion at VMSN22 >> Nationalism vs Internationalism - Is There a Middle Way?
    Nationalism is a dirty word in Western academic discourse. After two devastating European wars which plunged the world into chaos and misery, a rules-based international order was consciously built in which no single country could afford to ‘go it alone’. But after 60 years of internationalism, nationalism is back on the rise throughout the world. Why is this? Does internationalism alienate and nationalism root us? Does nationalism ultimately lead to tribalism? Is there a middle-way where people can be nationalistic without the bigotry associated with older forms of European nationalism?

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Panel Discussion at VMSN22 >> How do we Democratise Capital?
    Private wealth globally stands at $135 trillion. The wealthiest 1% control over 40% of this wealth. With this concentration of wealth comes power, and power in the hands of the few creates an unsustainable future for the many. Capital is employed to serve those that own it. How then do we ensure that it works for the benefit of humanity? Current suggestions range from de novo sovereign wealth funds to global collectives. Effectively democratising the capital in private hands whilst maintaining incentives for risk-taking and innovation presents a significant challenge. Many argue that in a capitalist society the return on capital will always be greater than the return on labour. How then how do we begin to include more people in the act of capital formation? Join us as we explore the future of capital.
