The podcast where we discuss the news of the week.
Social media saw heavy circulation of a video which showed a man killing and burning alive a Muslim man in Rajasthan, allegedly over an affair. Should such videos be shown on news channels? What’s point of playing it on a loop? Abhinandan Sekhri, Anand Vardhan, Anand Ranganathan, Raman Kirpal and Meghnad S discuss this issue and have mixed opinions on it. They also talk about the 25 years of the Babri Masjid demolition and was it worthy of large coverage now? Raman Kirpal talks of his coverage of the Babri Masjid demolition. Abhinandan raises an interesting question regarding slave trade in Libya. They also discuss Trump recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Did he think it through? Meghnad explains the big bad and sad loan story of banks in India. At last, they pay tribute to the actor who passed away on December 4, 2017. Listen up, there is a song dedication to Shashi Kapoor.
