Ep. 02: Chapter 2 - Understanding Secularism with Srishti Dixit & Andre Borges

How to Citizen

There is a world of difference between the theory we learnt in school and the reality we experience everyday. This is especially true about Civics. This podcast lays bare the gap between what textbooks preach to school kids about politics and what we actually see in Indian politics. Starting with the 8th Grade CBSE CIvics textbook ( https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1x21Px3Cj8JJ3PvdahlHCcDJFajAKtiIQ?usp=sharing ), every episode will have a guest who will talk about their reflections, doubts and takeaways from reading the chapter. The podcast will be hosted by Meghnad S and co-hosted by Shreyas Manohar. Every episode situates the guest at their hang-out spot from 8th grade, and recreates the vibe of friends revising for an exam moments before it starts. So let's get schooling, let's get schooled and let's learn how to citizen!
