Dive In

The great challenge of adulthood is holding on to your idealism after you lose your innocence.

That’s Bruce Springsteen who turned 71 today. Yup, 71! The rest of us likely lost our innocence a long time ago—but here’s hoping none of us have lost our idealism. Happy, happy Bruce! Illustration: Parth Savla

Big Story

Cyrus Mistry waves the white flag

The TLDR: The Tata Group has been embroiled in a four-year soap opera ever since Ratan Tata ganged up with other board directors to oust then chairman Cyrus Mistry in 2016.

That khandani maha-yudh finally came to an end yesterday, as did the long storied relationship between the two families—with Ratan Tata emerging as the undisputed winner.


We dive into the history of the Tata-Mistry sambandh and offer context to this historic breakup.
