All Indians Matter is a digital home for conversations with and about India on the issues that truly matter. For most of our post-Independence years, this was done by the news media. However, in recent times, the media have been found wanting. As a result, the issues that should be highlighted are sidelined and the voices that should find a megaphone are muffled. This podcast is an effort to engage with everyone who cares about India, its Constitution, its liberal and secular values.
All Indians Matter is the creation of Ashraf Engineer, who was a senior journalist with some of India’s leading newspapers for 17 years. His media work included a stint in 2011 in Afghanistan, where he trained and mentored journalists. He subsequently quit the news media and is now part of the brand communication industry.

State is not the property of an individual; it’s an institution
Professor VK Tripathi, a former plasma physicist who’s now a renowned peace activist, is well known for his walks through Delhi distributing pamphlets promoting communal harmony. He’s also become somewhat of a social media phenomenon through his videos. He was inspired to work for inter-faith amity after seeing first-hand the carnage of the 1989 Bhagalpur riots. He speaks to All Indians Matter on the rise of sectarian politics, the crumbling of our institutions and what lies ahead for India.
What a US recession would mean for India
Talk of an ‘induced’ recession in the US is gaining ground. If it happens, it’s likely to be mild and shortlived but it will affect India – from slowing growth to hurting sectors like IT, ITeS, textiles, jewellery, etc. It’ll also shake up the stock market and make loans that finance infrastructure and social programmes costlier. Please listen to the latest episode of All Indians Matter.
When I read Kasturba’s long-lost diary, it was as if she was speaking to me from 90 years ago
A couple of years ago, members of the Gandhi Research Foundation, Jalgaon, found a crumbling, damaged diary at Kasturba Ashram in Indore. It turned out to be a 135-page diary written by Kasturba, between January and September 1933. Like Kasturba, the diary lay forgotten and neglected. Tushar Gandhi, peace activist, author and great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and Kasturba, took it upon himself to translate the diary. The result was a book: ‘The Lost Diary of Kastur, My Ba’. He speaks to All Indians Matter about how the diary was found and what compelled him to translate it.

Food loss has multiple dimensions – economic, social, environmental
There is a gargantuan amount of post-harvest food loss – which occurs in the crops’ journey from farm to retailer – in India due to inefficient supply chains.

What can India, and you and I as individuals, do to reduce food loss? Shweta Lamba and Shaurabh Anand, experts from the World Resources Institute India, which has put together a working paper titled ‘Food Loss and Waste in India: The Knowns and The Unknowns’, speak to All Indians Matter.
LIC stock shock could set back disinvestment push

What does this mean for the government’s disinvestment targets? Please listen to the latest episode of All Indians Matter.
The audio quality was substandard, it needs a major revamp. Content was somehow okay, but the average audio quality could not keep me glued to this episode for long.
Totally Biased views.
Only one sided narrative. Full on time waste.
