Between 1915 and 1941, Gandhi and Tagore wrote many letters to each other freely expressing viewpoints and often disagreeing with each other on core issues such as nationalism, charkha, reason, and swaraj. Eight decades later, these discussions are still relevant in understanding India better. Not only are the debates engaging, they are also a lesson in expressing disagreements in a civil, cordial, and respectful manner. So this puliyabaazi is about the Gandhi-Tagore puliyabaazi. Saurabh and Pranay pick themes up from this treasure trove and shed light on their two perspectives.महात्मा और गुरुदेव, गांधी और टैगोर | भारत की यह दोनों महान हस्तियां भारतीय संस्कृति की वैचारिक विविधता की परिचायक है | १९१५ से लेकर १९४१ के बीच दोनों ने एक दूसरे को कई ख़त लिखे जिसमें उन्होंने अपने-अपने मत को रखते हुए एक-दूसरे से राष्ट्रवाद, असहयोग आंदोलन, चरखा, तर्क इत्यादि जैसे मूल विषयों पर असहमति व्यक्त की| तो ये पुलियाबाज़ी गांधी और टैगोर की पुलियाबाज़ी पर |Readings:The Mahatma and the Poet, Compiled and Edited by Sabyasachi BhattacharyaA Great Sentinel, MK GandhiPuliyabaazi is on these platforms:Twitter: https://twitter.com/puliyabaaziFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/puliyabaaziInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/puliyabaazi/Subscribe & listen to the podcast on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Castbox, AudioBoom, YouTube, Spotify or any other podcast app.

Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo, and Michael Kremer won the Nobel Prize in Economics 2019 “for their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty”. This experimental approach — Randomised Control Trials (RCTs) — is an alternative paradigm for conducting economics research. Adopted from medicine, RCTs are arguably referred to as the ‘gold standard’ for establishing causality. So this episode is about RCTs, their successes, and the ethical arguments against them. We are joined by Apurva Kumar programme manager at the Takshashila Institution, who has over 7 years of experience in the social development sector. He blogs about public health at Pubheal.यह चर्चा है रैण्डमाइस्ड कंट्रोल ट्रायल (RCT) के बारे में, एक ऐसी प्रक्रिया जिसने अर्थशास्त्र करने का तरीका ही बदल कर रख दिया | यह प्रकिया मेडिकल रिसर्च में उपयोग की जा रही थी लेकिन अब इसका प्रयोग गरीबी उन्मूलन के लिए भी हो रहा है| इस सोच के लिए अभिजीत बैनर्जी, एस्थर डूफ्लो, और माइकल क्रेमर को इस साल का नोबेल पुरस्कार भी मिला | तो हमने चर्चा की अपूर्व कुमार के साथ RCT के उपयोग, दुरुपयोग, और नैतिकता के बारे में |Readings: [Book] Poor Economics: Rethinking Poverty & the Ways to End it: Abhijit Banerjee & Esther Duflo Angus Deaton’s critique Randomise This!

2019 was a record-breaking one for Indian startups. Across sectors, companies raised more than $4 billion in venture capital last year. In fact, the first three quarters of 2019 alone witnessed the emergence of eight new unicorns (valuation > $ 1billion). So, in this episode, we take a close look at the world of venture capital which invests risk capital in these companies. To discuss this, we have Kushal Bhagia (@kushalbhagia), CEO of Firstcheque, an early-stage VC firm. We talk about:How a VC firm works - who invests in a VC firm, how do they make money, and how do employees of VC firms make money.What kind of business should look for VC money?Why do VC firms invest in such hugely loss-making startups?There is a critique of Indian VC space that most VCs have not been entrepreneurs. Is that a fair criticism? What are the consequences in India? Is it changing?How is the startup scene in India changing?यह ज़माना स्टार्टअप और नए उद्यमों का है | इस तरह की कम्पनियाँ शुरूआती चरणों में अक़्सर वेंचर कैपिटल के ज़रिए पूँजी जुटाती है | तो हमने सोचा इसी वेंचर कैपिटल जगत पर एक लम्बी पुलियाबाज़ी की जाए जिससे हम समझ सके कि वेंचर कैपिटल की एक अर्थव्यवस्था में आख़िर क्या जगह है? इस विषय पर चर्चा के लिए जुड़ रहे है कुशल भागिया जो फर्स्टचेक नामक एक वेंचर कैपिटल कंपनी के सीईओ है |Further reading:1.

The Preamble of the Indian Constitution has become a rallying point for lakhs of anti-CAA and NRC protesters across India. The preamble is being read out every single day on the streets of several cities. However, the Hindi version of the Preamble is hardly being read out, possibly because it uses ornate and archaic Hindi. So in this special episode of Puliyabaazi, we attempt a simpler version of the preamble. Our hope here is that listeners will create similar versions of the preamble in other Indian languages. Please do write to us at puliyabaazi@gmail.com with your versions so that we can compile the preamble in all languages in one place.नागरिकता संशोधन अधिनियम के कई विरोध प्रदर्शनों में संविधान की उद्देशिका का लाखों-करोड़ों लोग उच्चार कर रहे है | इससे प्रेरणा लेते हुए हमने सोचा कि इस उद्देशिका को सरल भाषा में लिखा जाना चाहिए | इसी प्रयास पर हमारा यह छोटा सा स्पेशल एपिसोड | आशा करते है कि यह सुनकर श्रोतागण साड़ी भारतीय भाषाओँ में उद्देशिका का सरल अनुवाद करेंगे और हमे puliyabaazi@gmail.com पर भेजेंगे जिससे हम आपके नाम सहित इन संस्करणों को एक साथ पब्लिश करेंगे|सरल भाषा में संविधान का मुखड़ा कुछ इस प्रकार है:हम, भारत के लोग, सच्चे मन से भारत को एकख़ुदमुख़्तार समाजवादी पंथनिरपेक्ष लोकतांत्रिक गणराज्य में गठित करते हैंताकि सभी नागरिकों को मिले:न्याय - सामाजिक, आर्थिक, और राजनैतिक,आज़ादी - सोच, इज़हार, यक़ीन, धर्म और इबादत की,बराबरी - दर्जे और अवसर की,भाईचारा - जिससे व्यक्ति की गरिमा और देश की एकता दोनों बरक़रार रहे,इस प्रण के साथ इस संविधान सभा में २६ नवम्बर, १९४९ को यह संविधान अपनाते है |Further reading:1) Reclaiming nationalism at the turn of the decade - Natasha Badhwar, Mint2) ‘We, the people’ - Nitin B., The News Minute3) It is Everybody’s Constitution - Gautam Bhatia, The HinduPuliyabaazi is on these platforms:Twitter: https://twitter.com/puliyabaaziFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/puliyabaazi Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/puliyabaazi/ Subscribe & listen to the podcast on iTunes , Google Podcasts, Castbox , AudioBoom , YouTube or any other podcast app.

Ep 67 sounded like teenagers talking. They missed basic points and made the whole episodes pointless. They sounded like fools.

We should have one in-depth Puliyabazi on Murray Rothbard - Enemy of the state, how taxation is theft, war is murder, government free society. i know it can be little hard and harsh but sharing such thought process is important.

wonderful discussion. I wonder if its really the case that our moral circle is expanding or whether its a cycle (similar to arguments of whether there is one big bang or multiple cycles). it reaches some stable/unstable equilibrium and repeats.If i just look at the Indian context, if you look at older sensibilities, they respected the nature much more, considered them even superior to humans at times-rivers mountains earth everything was god. This was probably a mix of fear and respect, or maybe they really did understand that if i need to live well, everything around me has to live well, because they were much more dependent on each other directly. As humans grew more in control and their individual identities took center stage, our moral circle shrunk. Now that we have again realised that its harming us, we are trying to expand our moral circle. This constant change in times is again very simply described as the transition from tretayug to kalyug followed by pralay in mythology and the cycle repeats. we are probably at the cusp of one such change, from individual centric to planet centric.

just one thought that, Pakistan was unsuccessful with Islamic nation thought but on the other hand Israel is very successful. maybe because Muslims are not that much scholar.

at 20:20 it's very correct to employ robots instead of worker, specially in country where employer need to follow 100s of law to employ workers. i think robots will not go in strike.. or Atleast ask for wage rise.. 😆😆

i think Listener includes salaried person also. so can we have talk about employees right and employer's duty regarding them including PF, pension, gratuity, salary payment on time and other things or something on impact of recent labour law amendment on employees. pros and cons.
