Contested Realities is about conflicting ideas and views in the real world – where difference in POVs make for most contests and conflicts. It is about development and thoughts from the space. Much of the writings here concern themselves with conflicting world views, observations and thoughts around them. It began during M.A. program – stuff that I was learning then and my views as they shaped over time.
Posts are mostly about outdoor sports – ultrarunning, cycling; K-12 teaching; consulting; farming and a bit of academic research in development studies, public policy and gig economy.
I keep a log of reading, music and occasional sentences that float, on Everyday Shorts.
