Indicast # 190: The Kejriwal connundrum

Sunday, 16 February 2014 05:30 Written by

Arvind Kejriwal's life in the fast lane came to an abrupt end when he resigned as the Chief Minister of Delhi on Friday. Another star who stole the show a few weeks back was Rahul Gandhi. His impeccably eventful performance on his first big TV interview baffled one and all. In sports, we have the Sochi Olympics, IPL auctions, England cricket team's woes and India's tour of New Zealand. And oh Aditya is now a brand new daddy. Hurray! (Picture credit: Reuters

Edward Carr, The Economist's Foreign editor takes us through his brilliant special report on America's foreign policy in which he argues that despite experiencing a dreadful decade abroad, Americans are unduly pessimistic about their place in the world. China's rise as a formidable player in world affairs is undisputed, but its economic heft doesn't yet qualify it to be a geopolitical influence that America wields.

In this podcast he talks about some of important keywords that have bothered US in the last few months: Syria, spying, counter insurgency and what are some of the alternatives, if any, to an American dominated international world order. And he does incredibly well in the rapid fire round, right at the end, which is reserved for our friends at The Economist.

Tuesday, 26 November 2013 05:30 Written by

In sports, everyone loves a good contest. And when Magnus Carlsen, the 22 year old Norwegian prodigy beat India's Vishy Anand, chess entered a new era. In this podcast we talk about how these giants of the game prepare to get there. Another prodigy, Prithvi Shaw smashed 546 in the 2013 Harris Shield tournament. We also talk a bit about the Bharat Ratna debate. This week marks the 50th anniversary of India's first rocket launch from Thumba, a small hamlet in south India. And why kids today are not as fit as their parents were at the same age. (Picture credit: Reuters

Indicast # 188: Sachin.. Sachin...

Wednesday, 20 November 2013 05:30 Written by

Statisticians love to debate about whether Sachin Tendulkar is indeed one of the best batsmen that the game has ever seen. Perhaps not. He ranks 29th according to one analysis. But Sachin has captured the imagination of world cricket like no other player. In India he is revered for his performances on and off the field. As he calls curtains on a glorious career, we look back at his exploits with the bat including the stroke-filled 74 at the Wankhede. We were there. At the stadium. And it was a joy to watch him regain some of his lost touch. (Picture credit: CrazyValue.com
