EP19 - BUSINESS LEADERSHIP DECODED, the secrets to success with Anil Puri - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
Growing and sustaining a business, especially in the manufacturing industry, is a challenge. To do so in a place away from your native land, facing a variety of different variables, is inspiring. What vision does it take to achieve this? What role do ethics play in this long journey, and where do they lead? Can a Dharmic outlook offer some lessons and guidance in the world of manufacturing and commerce? We explore these aspects in this episode of The Vichaar Manthaan Podcast with Anil Ji Puri. Anil Ji is the Group Chairman of Purico Ltd., based in the UK. The company is an international manufacturing organization with interests in multiple sectors.

EP18 - VEGANISM, a trend, a virtue, or a fad? with Dina Aherne - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
EP18 - VEGANISM, a trend, a virtue, or a fad? with Dina Aherne - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
“Veganism isn’t about the mock meat, about replacing life for life, veganism is about whole food and plant-based. So when we talk about vegan foods assisting your health, and giving you a multitude of health benefits, we are talking about pulses, lentils, rice, seeds, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. We are not talking about having fake chicken or fake meat every day…I know a lot of unhealthy vegans as well. There is a misconception that if you’re vegan, you’re healthy” A large component of our everyday lives is food. A number of ‘food fads’ have been in and out of fashion in recent years, with ongoing debates around food, health and choices, to the point where such choices are going beyond sustenance, to creating identities, labels, and political movements, and influencing public policies. Veganism, the lifestyle which avoids consuming animal-based products, is one such movement. Indeed, veganism goes beyond just food, to include every product we use. In this episode of The Vichaar Manthan podcast, we explore veganism with Dina Aherne. As she describes her almost-overnight transition to veganism, Dina Ji paints the entire landscape surrounding meat as a source of food, zooming out from the sanitised, convenient and easily available options in the markets today. She discusses veganism in the larger context, highlighting the often cruel practices of the animal breeding industry, and linking animal product consumption to the larger issues of global warming, and unsustainable growth. Even a small bit of awareness can create a shift toward a more sustainable, kinder society, and often this awareness is missing in the general public. The message she leaves us with is to think about the choices we make as consumers. And in doing so - reminding us that humans are inherently capable of compassion - compels us to consider whether they could include similar consideration towards the other members of the living world, as we show towards ourselves.

EP17 - YOGA BUSINESS with Anand Parekh - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
EP17 - YOGA BUSINESS with Anand Parekh - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
Little & Often Yoga has become popular in the last decade, especially in the west, glamourised some would say, it's hip, cool, and sexy, it has benefited millions of people both physically and mentally, and claims not to be a new science, but a tried and tested method passed out from the depths of India. How do we take this ancient, multi-dimensional practice, which originated in a different land, imbibed with its own linguistic complexities and cultural and spiritual context, to the west and adapt it to our modern lives? Several yoga studios have emerged, and tend to be likened to gyms, where people flock to shed some kilos or get that movie-star figure. So is yoga only a set of postures and physical exercises? And does one not knowing its depth reduce the integrity of the practitioner? Where do we draw the line, where is it cultural appropriation and when is it simply not yoga anymore? In this episode of The Vichaar Manthan Podcast, we deep dive into the asanas and into the breathing techniques, with yogi Anand Parekh. We ask what Yoga means and its different aspects. Let’s find out what the practice of yoga brings into our lives and how it can be a powerful tool for transformation. Anand Ji Parekh grew up with a curiosity and an interest in Yoga. He worked full-time for eight years, before quitting corporate life to open his own Yoga studio in Nottingham, where he teaches and runs the business today.

Please register on our website and for more information > https://www.vichaarmanthan.org ------------------------------------------------------------ Panel Discussion at VMSN22 >> The End of Family - For Better or Worse? There have been many who have wanted to be rid of the family altogether, from the Greek philosopher and father of Western thought, Plato, to the radical Marx who wanted to build an egalitarian community. Then there has been Hindu thought, which has put family at the front and centre of civic life, a hallmark of its civilisation. As liberty and freedom spreads globally in conjunction with technology and affluence, what purpose, if any, will the family play in the decades to come? What will be the consequences for human well-being if the family unit dissolves or becomes irrelevant? How would we find what Erich Fromm called ‘rootedness’ in our childhood without a strong foundation provided by the family? Join us to discover what a sustainable model for the family of the future entails. Please register on our website and for more information: https://www.vichaarmanthan.org/vmsn2022 Elderly: Who Cares?

Nationalism is a dirty word in Western academic discourse. After two devastating European wars which plunged the world into chaos and misery, a rules-based international order was consciously built in which no single country could afford to ‘go it alone’. But after 60 years of internationalism, nationalism is back on the rise throughout the world. Why is this? Does internationalism alienate and nationalism root us? Does nationalism ultimately lead to tribalism? Is there a middle-way where people can be nationalistic without the bigotry associated with older forms of European nationalism?

Private wealth globally stands at $135 trillion. The wealthiest 1% control over 40% of this wealth. With this concentration of wealth comes power, and power in the hands of the few creates an unsustainable future for the many. Capital is employed to serve those that own it. How then do we ensure that it works for the benefit of humanity? Current suggestions range from de novo sovereign wealth funds to global collectives. Effectively democratising the capital in private hands whilst maintaining incentives for risk-taking and innovation presents a significant challenge. Many argue that in a capitalist society the return on capital will always be greater than the return on labour. How then how do we begin to include more people in the act of capital formation? Join us as we explore the future of capital.

Google, Amazon, Meta and other emerging tech giants are more powerful than many nation-states; yet these giant global institutions are largely governed by a narrow set of objectives and answerable to a relatively small set of stakeholders. All of our lives are shaped by these giants - for better or ill - yet, we have little to no say in how they are governed. How does a democratic world reconcile itself with such a concentration of largely unregulated power?

Much of our identity is tied into our perception and understanding of our own history, do we ever step back to consider who or what has constructed this history? Or does this even matter? In 1978, Edward Said took the academic world by storm with the publication of Orientalism. Said and subsequent scholars of the postcolonial world have forcefully argued for the centrality of power relations in the construction of knowledge and historical narratives. To what extent is our understanding of India’s past simply a product of the colonial project? What does it mean to decolonise India’s history? If knowledge is simply a product of power, can we ever step out of the “coloniser’s gaze”?

Imagine if we took the historicity out of the Bible and Qur’an and re-interpreted them as literature from an ancient past that gives us much to contemplate and discover. Are the world's religions too vested in reading texts as scripture, which act as their source of power and legitimacy, when in fact these ought to be taken as literature and freed from religious dogma and interpretation?

Please register on our website and for more information > https://www.vichaarmanthan.org Panel Discussion at VMSN22 >> Does Religion Subjugate Women? Throughout history, religion has often engendered patriarchal societies in almost every corner of the globe. Their central scriptures have been interpreted in ways that explicitly and implicitly grant men greater freedoms and social benefits. These interpretations have been maintained across time to the modern day, where we see vastly different levels of gender equality across the world’s civilisations. This is most stark in the Islamic world, but even in societies influenced by Christianity, debates about equality of the sexes are hotly contested. Does the continued prevalence of religion mean that such debates are unsolvable and that women must be relegated to an inferior status? Or is there an alternative? Can dharmic traditions and the application of dharma show the way for a more sustainable approach?

Please register on our website and for more information > https://www.vichaarmanthan.org Fireside Conversation at VMSN22 >> Markets - Panacea or Wilful Ignorance? Milton Friedman once quipped, “underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself”. Friedman believed in a small government, limited regulation, and faith in market pricing, allowing the relationship between supply and demand to control everything. Do we want markets to decide how much we pay for our healthcare? Do we trust the markets to solve climate change? Those that advocate free markets believe it is the bedrock of all that we value in a liberal democracy, while the naysayers, who are also equally convinced, argue for intervention, and a bigger role for regulation and legislation. Who is right?

If they want to get at net zero, you can either not help them to get to net zero or you can. But the question is, are you helping move the dial for a positive change in the world, regardless of who you’re working with and are you helping them move forward…There are always going to be conflicts, whether you perceive yourself as not having any conflicts whatsoever, you will have conflicts…Make the decisions that help make a better world and don’t get too embroiled in figuring out what the motives are, because everyone has a motive…its this distrust that’s stopping us moving forward.” Climate change, global warming and sustainability have been the major themes in the news for some time now, with the world starting to face the consequences of the rising temperatures on weather patterns, agricultural outputs, and entire ecosystems. These changes are being addressed by countries worldwide by setting goals of bringing down carbon emissions, switching to cleaner sources of energy, and a host of other measures. Every activity undertaken has an impact on the environment, and vice-versa. In order to continue having a functional economy while reducing environmental impact, a review of older processes, and new investments is being undertaken to minimise harm. A whole new field of ESG has now emerged to tackle this challenge. So what exactly is ESG? In this episode of The Vichaar Manthan Podcast, we turn to Yajur ji Haria to help us understand and explore the topic. Yajur Ji explains Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in layman’s terms, and explores the complex, interconnected components that must be integrated to measure these impacts. Ultimately, he helps us understand the impact we have as consumers on the supply chain, and realise how each individual can make a conscious choice towards addressing these global issues. This episode helps answer: how does an individual fund the change we need in the world? Yajur Ji Haria is an Oxford graduate. He is the SVP and head of ESG analytics at Redington.

EP15 - DHARMA & ADVOCACY, A View from America with Suhag Shukla - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
EP15 - DHARMA & ADVOCACY, A View from America with Suhag Shukla - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
“Academic freedom comes with academic integrity” Hinduism is characterised by an open, seeking and enquiry-based learning of life. Indeed, Hinduism has the potential to be an integrative platform, bringing in the values of acceptance, individual freedom and societal upliftment, to an increasingly polarised and fragmented society today. However, we have seen more and more individuals and institutions at the forefront of leading systematic biases, even attacks against Hindus and Hinduism, whether due to ignorance or with informed malicious intent. This is the central subject of discussion in this episode of The Vichaar Manthan Podcast, with the Hindu American Foundation (HAF)’s Suhag Ji Shukla.  Suhag Ji is a lawyer and co-founder of The HAF. She takes us through the journey of her encounters with representation or misrepresentation of Hinduism in the American societal narrative, even by academics, and the motivations behind the foundation of the HAF. She discusses the need for educational reforms, correcting the stereotypes and misconceptions about Hinduism and its symbols, and raising awareness regarding the human rights issues of the Hindu community in other parts of the world. From building a legitimate ground for open discussions on Hinduphobia to addressing the immense challenges of active dehumanisation of Hindus based on these misconceptions, HAF is actively contributing to building a stronger voice for Hindus not only in America but also for the Hindu community across the globe.  Follow Suhag Shukla: https://twitter.com/SuhagAShukla Hindu American Foundation: https://www.hinduamerican.org/ Fireside Conversation @ VMSN2020: https://youtu.be/muIYaCAzZvU  Recommended Reads: The Bhagwad Gita  #hindupodcast #Hindu #HinduAmerica #HinduAmerican #AmericanHindu #HinduAmericanFoundation #HAF #HindusinAmerica ------------------------------------------------------------ The VM Podcast, a Vichaar Manthan project looking to explore modern-day issues through a Dharmic lens.

EP14 - UPANISHADS - THE HINDU LIBRARY with SIddharth Krishna - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
EP14 - UPANISHADS - THE HINDU LIBRARY with SIddharth Krishna - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
“(The Upanishads speak of)...the sutra-atman, the threading breath, the breath that threads all of us together. Like in a rosary, all the different beads have been thread together by a thread, similarly, this breath threads all of us together. It is that connecting entity which connects all of us …” In this episode of The Vichaar Manthan Podcast, we discuss, as a part of the Hindu Library series, the Upanishads, with Siddhartha ji Krishna. The Upanishads can be thought of as a turning point in the history of human civilization. They explore the ideas of the Atman and the Brahman, the self and the Universal consciousness. The Upanishads represent some of the most fundamental discussions on the subject of the human experience of life, and the path to experience the purest state of one’s being. And despite their antiquity, the very nature of their subject matter not only ensures their relevance today, but indeed, makes them timeless… Siddhartha ji Krishna was raised in a family tradition of yoga, memorised the Gita at the age of six and was educated at the Kailash Ashram Brahma Vidyapeeth in Rishikesh. He is a spiritual master and a teacher of Indian philosophy, including Advaita Vedanta, Patanjali’s Yoga and Sanskrit, and continues to be based in Rishikesh at the Omkarananda Ashram.

EP13 - TODAYS YOUTH TODAYS LEADERS with Bhavya Shah - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
University years form a core of our life experience: this is a time we step out of our homes into the world, absorb the multitude of ideas around us, which shapes our identity and our contributions to the society. Indeed, having access to a safe space for exploring one’s identity becomes a critical need. This is the key vision of the National Hindu Students Forum (UK). In this episode of the Vichaar Manthan podcast, we’re in conversation with the current President of NHSF, Bhavya Shah, as we look into the challenges and experiences of the youth, and the need to have an open environment that allows the exploration of dharma in University life. Learn how the largest Hindu student movement outside of India operates on a completely voluntary basis, is youth-led, and envisions supporting the youth of today leading a change towards a more dharmic, sustainable society. #NHSF#Youth #HinduYouth #KarmaBhumi #PunyaBhumi #Dharma #Dharmic #Values #Culture #Bharat #India #IndiaYouth #BritishHindu Recommended books: https://books.google.co.uk/books/about/Sadhana_of_Service.html?id=fQ_oCQAAQBAJ&redir_esc=y Follow NHSF: https://www.nhsf.org.uk/ https://twitter.com/nhsf_uk https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp0OofXboDQoeBqXneh_kWA/videos ------------------------------------------------------------ The VM Podcast, a Vichaar Manthan project looking to explore modern-day issues through a Dharmic lens.

EP12 - LIBERTY & FREEDOM; ARE YOU FREE? with Dr Sachin Nandha - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
EP12 - LIBERTY & FREEDOM; ARE YOU FREE? with Dr Sachin Nandha - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
We go about our lives, making our way through a ton of choices everyday, and rarely give a second thought to the ideas of liberty and freedom, as the society we live in celebrates these as guarantees to its citizens. But do we live with ‘absolute liberties’? Can we always say what we want? - There are certain rules, often unstated, that are observed. Not following these rules will often get you isolated, hence the idea of civil liberties is somewhat restricted. How about freedom? We celebrate our freedom in the form of exercising our specific choices. Are these choices based on free will? How are these ideas a keystone of our living experience? In this episode of The Vichaar Manthan Podcast, we ask and reflect on liberty, freedom, the differences between them and asking the all important question; Are you free? Dr. Sachin ji Nandha has a PhD in political philosophy from the University of Nottingham, is an ex-private equity partner, and is currently working with the Charitable Earth Foundation.

EP11 - BUILDING OUR GREEN FUTURE with Judy Ling Wong - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
Our everyday life contains consumables drawn out from nature and earth. While shopping is a favourite pastime, we are now facing the consequences of our consumerist lifestyle in the form of global warming. While we might think environmental protection is an issue for governments to solve, it affects every bit of our lives: from weather patterns, the food we eat, to our cultural, social and economic ties. In this episode of The VM Podcast, we see why sustainability is essential to maintain the very fabric of our lives. Let's explore individual and collective actions that could help build a more sustainable living environment. We attempt to answer: how can our conscious actions as consumers and members of society shape a sustainable future? We are honoured to be joined by Judy Ling Wong CBE, born in Hong Kong, studied in Australia and has been living in Europe. She is a painter, a poet and an environmentalist, and the Honorary President of Black Environment Network. With an international reputation as the pioneer in the field of ethnic participation in the built and natural environment, She is a major voice on policy towards social inclusion and has pioneered an integrative approach to environmental participation, bringing together social, cultural, environmental and economic concerns. In 2000, Judy was honoured with an OBE for pioneering ethnic minority environmental participation, and in 2007 a CBE followed, for services to heritage.

EP10 - BHAGWAD GITA - THE HINDU LIBRARY with Siddharth Krishna - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
Despite the Bhagavad Gita being 5000 years old, it remains the first text we think of when we look at Hindu literature. Why would that be? What makes it relevant today and how does it take us beyond the dichotomy of good and bad? We look at these questions in this episode, where we explore the vast ocean of Hindu literature as applicable to the modern context. Siddhartha ji Krishna was raised in a family tradition of yoga, memorised the Gita at the age of 6 and was educated at the Kailash Ashram Brahma Vidyapeeth in Rishikesh.

EP09 - DHARMA THROUGH CINEMA with Aditya Patwardhan - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
In the exuberating world we live in today, where a lot of choices are cultivated through pop culture and cinema, how can we see dharma through the same 90mm lens? What responsibility do we have to ensure the transition from ‘real and reel’ has a seamless amalgamation, rather than a paradoxical one? We have with us Aditya Patwardhan, a critically acclaimed, LA-based filmmaker who is known for a wide array of works, including documentaries, series pilots, and short films. With an internationally recognised filmography, his work has been showcased through prestigious mediums like the Cannes Film Festival. Aditya has also directed and produced two feature-length films with two more in production. We will be diving into how dharma impacts the eye of a cinematographer, through the many hats he wears in scripting, ideation, narration and acting through to post-production.   Latest film: A Nomad River >> https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7513844/?ref_=ttpl_pl_tt Follow Aditya Ji: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4553586/?ref_=nmbio_bio_nm https://patwardhans.org https://twitter.com/ajpatwardhan   #cinema #filmmaker #director #producer #dharmiccinema #bhartiyasanskruti #ideas #society #Bharat #India #SanatanDharma #Philosophy #CannesFilmFestival #Hollywood #Bollywood ------------------------------------------------------------ The VM Podcast, a Vichaar Manthan project looking to explore modern day issues through a Dharmic lens.

EP06 - THE HINDU LIBRARY with Siddharth Krishna - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
Hindu civilization and its rich vedic culture have produced many books, scriptures and prayers from an ancient oral tradition through to vast texts such as the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Gita with which we are familiar today. What are these texts?, and is there a main ‘Hindu book’? How do the Vedas fit together? What is smriti? There are how many Gitas? How do we navigate this vast body of literature and make sense of it today? In EP06 of The VM Podcast, we are joined by Siddhartha ji Krishna to help answer these questions whilst we go on a journey through the many texts that make up ‘The Hindu Library’, Let’s learn about their structure and content, and how the modern reader should approach them. Siddhartha ji Krishna was raised in a family tradition of yoga, memorised the Gita at the age of 6 and was educated at the Kailash Ashram Brahma Vidyapeeth in Rishikesh. He is a spiritual master and a teacher of Indian philosophy, including Advaita Vedanta, Patanjali’s Yoga and Sanskrit, and continues to be based in Rishikesh at the Omkarananda Ashram.

EP05 - HOW TO NAVIGATE THROUGH LIFE USING DHARMIC PRINCIPLES with Dharmesh Chheda - The Vichaar Manthan Podcast
Life is inherently uncertain. If nothing else, the COVID pandemic has highlighted our inability to navigate a world full of uncertainty and novel experiences. How do we enhance our relationship with others, and with the world around us? How can the principles of dharma help us navigate through life in the 21st century?  In this episode, we are joined by Mr Dharmesh Chheda to take a stab at some of these questions, and explore how we might manage the challenges of life in a more sustainable way.  Dharmesh Ji has a career that has spanned many different businesses and in roles primarily around business development, and building and growing client relationships. He is the head of Academy of Professional Development at the ICAEW. He has a passion for engaging with, mentoring and coaching young people.  Recommended book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Alchemist-Fable-about-Following-Dream/dp/0061233846  Follow Dharmesh: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dharmesh-chheda-6622763a/   ------------------------------------------------------------ The VM Podcast, a Vichaar Manthan project looking to explore modern day issues through a Dharmic lens.

From alcoholic fathers to financially irresponsible spouses, we explore the practical lessons that Dharma can teach us when it comes to creating wholesome relationships.
