The Right People – Episode 2 : Sunanda Vashisht
The Right People is a podcast series initiated by Centre Right India to highlight people who are not politicians or involved closely with professional politics. CRI talks to those who identify with centre-right politics from across the vast Right framework – economic right-wingers, libertarians, traditionalists, Swadeshi right, etc.
Undoubtedly, these groups bicker much among themselves and are not part of any monolithic Right; however, they all have their place in national politics as long as they represent a community of interests and values within the state. CRI recognizes this diversity and welcomes it, and The Right People tries to talk to different people to better understand their views and aims.
In the second episode of Right People, CRI editor Prasanna has an enlivening discussion with Sunanda Vashisht, a popular blogger and columnist on her first hand experience of turbulence in Kashmir, hers days in a famous Delhi college, events that shaped her political consciousness , emergence of digital internet activism and host of other issues.
