    From Friends to Co-founders | What is it like to be a Social Entrepreneur? | TSS Episode 4

    From Friends to Co-founders | What is it like to be a Social Entrepreneur? | TSS Episode 4

    In this episode of The Social Saga, we have a dynamic trio with us- Ms. Somkanta Chatterjee, Ms.Sakshi Mate and Ms.Mrunmai Joshi who are co-founders of a startup Taali– where learning meets playtime in the most enchanting way. Their story is a symphony of friendship, passion, and purpose, as they unite to create a realm of experiential learning through toys and games.



    These Friends turned Co-Founders found their calling in this common cause of allowing children to engage with India’s cultural heritage in an interactive and enjoyable manner. I had super fun shooting this one as I got to engage in a conversation with three young entrepreneurs aspiring to look at the way of employment in a different manner. I hope you find value in this, too.



    Witness us talk about the world of social entrepreneurship, co-founder ship, evolving startup culture in India and lots of insights on the importance of experiential learning.

    Discovering Ecology, Economy and Self in the Climate Crisis | Our Earth Shastra Experience Captured

    Discovering Ecology, Economy and Self in the Climate Crisis | Our Earth Shastra Experience Captured

    In this very special episode of The Social Saga, we have my co-travelers- Aditi, Ashay, Ashok, and Mansi with us to share our incredible experience at Earth Shastra, a program designed by Youth Alliance. Earth-Shastra takes young changemakers from across India on a 9-day immersive journey to inhabit the world of the future, to take a pause and understand what’s happening to our planet from a holistic perspective. 

    During those nine days in early June 2023, I, along with my 40 co-travellers learned in abundance about the climate emergency, consumerism, community building, value of meaningful relationships in life, role of trust, economics, self and so much more! From realizations to moments that made us feel more connected to our purpose, we're excited to share it all.

    All of this and more, we have tried to capture through our conversation in this episode. I am sure you find this one insightful as not only we have talked about our experience but also brought to the surface our wholesome learnings that you can take back home. Let us know your thoughts in the comments; we can't wait to hear what resonates with you!

    Guide to Yoga as a Way of Life | With Rohan Kokil

    Guide to Yoga as a Way of Life | With Rohan Kokil

    In this very special episode of The Social Saga, we have Rohan Kokil with us who is a yoga practitioner and a chiropractor. He is also the founder of Yoga For Amigos- a company that connects the youth to the roots of Yoga. Rohan has been one of my best friends and I have seen him going through the ups and downs of life with grace and dignity. Through this conversation, I wish to bring his life learnings and the journey of turning into a yoga practitioner from a CA aspirant. 



    Yoga is one of India's most significant gifts to the world. As a society, embracing its practice will serve humanity in all possible ways. Witness us talk about the career lessons, sound therapy, modern-day approach of yoga, its widespread reach in the world and how it promotes a life full of contentment and peace.
