Contested Realities is about conflicting ideas and views in the real world – where ideas are seen differently, interpreted differently. It concerns such 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.
Teaching: I’ve joined an amazing bunch of committed educators and business leaders at Genwise, who are driving meaningful education and learning.
Consulting: I work with FRANK Water Projects, UK in their India and Nepal projects.
Research: I work at the Institute of Public Policy, as Research Associate in understanding work in the gig economy.
Farming: I’ve bought a small farm in Wardha and we sowed our first crop of the Kharif season. With this begins an effort to understand marginal and subsistence farming situation in India. The farm is also a start in setting up a homestead.
I keep a log of reading, music and occasional sentences that float, on Everyday Shorts.
