We have all judged books by their covers and people by their looks. We idolise external beauty and rarely take time to look deep within. Beauty is an industry worth billions of dollars, personality - not so much. What is our flawed notion of beauty costing us? How does it affect the people around us? Today Deepti talks to us about her skin condition that manifested in her youth and how it changed her perspective about life and relationships. You can see her work at https://www.annachandy.com/
Most of us went through rigourous academic requirements that while made us employable took away our curiosity, wonder, and in some cases our dreams. And now we are pushing our children to chase the same academic excellence. But some mavericks are already exploring other alternatives. They are looking at avenues like homeschooling, unschooling, and roadschooling to give their kids more life experience, to give them creative expression, and have them learn not for the sake of degrees, but for the sake of learning itself. Today we are talking to two such parents - Nitu and Gangadhar - about their experiences. Join the conversation on telegram here https://lnkd.in/dVptN6V

We all grow up toeing the line of the world’s expectations from us. Be this, do that, make more money, get a promotion, get married, have kids. There is just so much pushing us down paths that probably are not meant for us. Walking these paths makes us unhappy, but we keep at it because we don’t want to let people down. But if your heart is not in it, isn’t it time to quit? That’s what we are talking about today with Lalana Zavari.
