    The rights we lost with Aakar Patel

    The rights we lost with Aakar Patel

    In this episode, Karthik speaks to journalist and author Aakar Patel about the erosion of individual rights and freedom in India at the hands of successive governments, since the country won its group-level freedom in 1947. They talk about how citizens of India enjoy much lesser rights today than they did in 1950 when its constitution was drafted and how this is affecting India's stature in democratic indices globally. In specific, Karthik and Aakar discuss the right to religious conversion, to occupation, and also about the use of the military in the governance of regions like the North-Eastern states and Kashmir. They also talk about the NGO sector and how the systematic dismantling of it that we are witnessing today, will affect the last mile outreach in the country. The episode delves into how even on paper, different Indians have inconsistent rights depending on gender, caste, religion, or even geographic location.

    Ep. 87: What She Does Best with Barkha Dutt

    Ep. 87: What She Does Best with Barkha Dutt

    In the early months of the lockdown, regular news reporting was largely restricted to government announcements. With print practically unavailable, there was a deafening silence in terms of meaningful journalism in those initial months. In this episode, Karthik speaks to Barkha Dutt about how she reinvented the reportage around the pandemic by taking to the road, traveling more than 14000 Kilometres across the country, and meeting the real people on the road. They discuss the logistical challenges of doing this as a woman reporter, how local governance panned out in India, and some of the human stories that she encountered, which stayed with her. They also discuss the future of news especially the relevance of podcasts in journalism and why she chose a more in-stream strategy for The Mojo Story as against a web destination. Barkha and Karthik also talk about the journalists and news models that she admires outside her own organization.
