Dive In


Karnataka has always forged inclusive economic development and we must not allow such communal exclusion—If ITBT (information technology and bio-technology) became communal it would destroy our global leadership. @BSBommai please resolve this growing religious divide.

Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode’, the splainer team looks at the Will Smith ‘thappad’ through an Indian lens—which has been missing in the popular debate—including how the protector role plays out in politics. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.
