The Right People – Episode 5 : Sandeep Balakrishna
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 fifth episode of The Right People, CRI editor Jaideep talks to Sandeep Balakrishna. Sandeep is an extremely popular blogger known for his mastery over cultural issues, Indic literature and scriptures. Sandeep’s blog ‘The Rediscovery of India” is one of the top ranking sites among Indian political affairs/commentary blogs and websites. He is also an insightful current affairs commentator who writes damning take-downs of pretentious pundits polluting the political discourse.
