With images of mass cremations hitting global headlines, 300,000 and growing daily (registered) Covid case rates, in addition to the world’s largest protest where Farmers from across India are gathered in Delhi to pursue reforms, Delhi is undergoing rapid change with many issues now hitting the surface.
From local policy paralysis through to liberal labelling of the word terrorist, this is a deeply challenging time for any Government and the people they look to serve.
In today’s podcast Rajan meets with Ann Daata, an on-the-ground team of investigative journalists who provide deep, candid insight on the issues impacting all sides.
We take a second look at key events, question the causes (including rampant corruption), discover the shocking reality of identity politics in India and question the integrity of some in mainstream media.
We also look towards the future and at potential solutions to help create an environment that connects social custodianship and economic output.
This will be an uneasy conversation for most as the sentiment of the farmers protest has been in most cases hijacked by a range of agendas, as well as the human tragedy of Covid-19.
Due to the sensitive nature of the conversation, please listen to the conversation in full prior to commenting.

About the Global Indian Series:
Rajan Nazran is the chief chief explorer for the Global Indian Series, the official platform for people of Indian origin (PIO), because let’s face it, we are everywhere!
For almost 15 years we have travelled across the globe covering 58 countries to date whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable global community.
Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for us!
Our purpose is simple, to build a living encyclopaedia of the community and a safe mooring ground for open discussions, whether you are an NRI, Indian Diaspora, person of Indian origin (PIO) or a fan of South Asian anthropology, what we do is bring people and communities together.
We do this by plunging into the human experience of being a person of Indian origin (PIO), taking a second look at the countries we now call home and tackling the conversations we need to know more about.
Through our range of award-winning original content (print, podcasts, events and TV) and fascinating discussions, our impactful stories and platforms have spearheaded national and international conversations that have brought people together.
