Ep. 76: India's Blood Donation Challenge
Play • 56 min

India has always had one of the highest absolute shortage of blood units in the World. There are many reasons for it - most of them are cultural in nature. The pandemic has only made things even worse. One of the few organizations to make a really big positive impact in this space has been Blood Donors India. Their seamless integration with Twitter has resulted in a simple but effective solution that is saving more than 8 lives everyday in India. This week, Karthik speaks with Balu Nayar - founder of Blood Donors India, who has been the driving force of this impact. They speak about the challenge that India and other countries face and the journey of how Blood Donors India came about. They also talk about the impact that Balu has had on Indian sports, most notably Cricket. Balu and the team that he was leading at IMG were the architects of what we know today as the IPL. Karthik and Balu speak about that journey with the BCCI and also about how the multiple occasions when the IPL almost came close to not happening.

Ep. 13: Pakode, Samose aur kya tal raha hai?
It is not fry-day yet, but our 2Gs, the Gourmands and the Geeks, Sadaf and Archit, are already frying samosa, pakoda (or bhajiya), and other fried delicacies. In this episode, they examine the tradition of frying in India through the lens of Ayurveda, history, and mythology. They also become part-time nutritionists and answer some tough questions like whether frying is healthy or unhealthy and what should we choose between kachi ghani (cold press) oil, ghee, or refined oil for frying. So sit back and relax, heat some oil in a pan, fry some pakoda and samosa, and listen to this episode. Important links to geek out more: Take pride in the bonda or pakora.

#86 - The Life & Times of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose | Vivek Khaitan, Abhishek Bannerjee
Subhas Chandra Bose was an Indian nationalist whose defiant patriotism  made him a hero in India, but whose attempt during World War II to rid  India of British rule with the help of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan  left a troubled legacy. The honorific Netaji, first applied in early  1942 to Bose in Germany by the Indian soldiers of the Indische Legion  and by the German and Indian officials in the Special Bureau for India  in Berlin, was later used throughout India.    On the occasion of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Jayanti, we put together a  special panel of guests to remember Netaji's impact on nascent India.   In this special episode of the Bharatvaarta podcast, Vivek Khaitan and  Abhishek Bannerjee deconstruct the life and deeds of Subhash Chandra  Bose, from his relationship with the Indian National Congress to his  death, which is shrouded in mystery to this day. We also explore some  interesting counterfactuals, such as Bose holding on to the INC's  leadership position or him returning to India after his death.   We also look into Bose's infamous relationship with the Axis powers, the  formation of the INA and the role it played in the freedom struggle,  and his significance in modern India. We end by exploring the current  effort to resurrect his legacy by the ruling BJP party.    This podcast is available on YouTube, Apple, Google, Spotify, Breaker,  Stitcher, and other popular platforms.
