The Right People – Episode 8: Utsav Mitra
The Right People 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 eight episode of The Right People, editor Amarnath Govindarajan talks Utsav Mitra. Utsav has a very noticeable presence on social media. He is well known for his interventions and is one of the most articulate voices of the Right in the twitter world. Through his work with Akanksha Foundation he works to raise the quality of education in Mumbai’s municipal schools.
