💌 Role of public art in shaping public, policy and culture - Born to set it right is unmissable. You can’t walk or drive past it without checking it out. Unlike a billboard that is trying to sell you something, art makes you take a journey inward.
💌 The Tufts Professor who quit his job to write a newsletter - That said, a slightly more unexplored aspect of one-person business is the peril of idea manufacturing. In an Instagram post today, standup comic and writer Rohan Joshi talked about the difficult of constant product and need for dopamine hits.
💌 Practical World History and The New World Order - I met Saurav Jha 4 years back and introduced him to Network Capital. Since then, I have followed his writing and am glad to be hosting him to reflect on his latest book “Negotiating the New Normal” as part of our new course on practical world history. He raises important questions and nudges us to explore India’s role in shaping a new global order in the post-pandemic world.
Have a wonderful week ahead.
