One of our favorites from the past year, our interview with Malini Agarwal.....We're talking to a media mogul!! Malini Agarwal, aka MissMalini, is India's most famous blogger with a following of 7.5 million worldwide. We start out talking about how her "diplobrat" life growing up has helped shape her into the women she is today. Malini discusses living through a civil war in Lebanon, how her mom has been her rock and champion FOMO queen, and what led her to the City of Dreams. She tells me why radio is still her favorite medium, the bucket list of 24, her book, To The Moon: How I Blogged My Way To Bollywood, and some epic stories that you can only experience in Mumbai.We of course dive into her best and worst interviews, what it is really like to work with her husband, and her plan to shed light and start conversations around cyber bullying and sexual harassment in India with #ignorenomore. Malini is a staunch supporter of women supporting women, as can been seen with MissMalini's Girl Tribe, and she tells me what she regrets the most throughout her legendary journey. And guys, there's so much more....

Hey everyone and welcome back to Eggs. This week we have special guest, SEO wizard, and entrepreneur, Vikas Singal. Also known as Sam, Vikas is the creator of SamBlogs a digital marketing firm based in India. Unlike your typical SEO agency, SamBlogs creates a unique experience for their clients that addresses their challenges and caters to their business needs with clarity, simplicity, experience, and most importantly honesty. From a small village in India, and with a background in mechanical engineering, Vikas has long been entrepreneurial. In 2008, he started his first marketing agency in Mumbai but unfortunately — or fortunately — it failed. It was a devastating blow, but also became one of the most profound learning experiences in his life. Just a few years later Vikas discovered digital marketing and realized he'd found his calling. Working independently at first, then rapidly growing, he discovered he had a unique understanding of SEO — or search engine optimization. He developed his knowledge and in short order launched SamBlogs, which has become one of the top digital marketing agencies in India. It's been a wild ride, and we can't wait to dig in. Joining us today for a conversation about the importance of blogging in a company's SEO strategy, things that any business can do to improve their SEO today, how to know where your business stands currently from an SEO perspective, and so much more.

This episode is brought to you by Sendlane.   Saral is an influencer marketing tool that can find any influencer's email as long as they're on Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube, says Yash Chavan, Founder of Saral. It's designed to help emerging DTC brands build profitable influencer marketing campaigns while avoiding losing money on traditional social media campaigns.   Before founding Saral, Yash worked as a growth consultant guiding product-oriented brands. As part of that work, he also found success in helping execute influencer marketing programs.   "I'm a marketer at heart, so I want to help other marketers and founders who want to do marketing and make influencer marketing easier for them," he says.   Truth be told, Yash says he's not comfortable with the term "influencer."   "If I become dictator, I'll just remove the word influencer from everybody's dictionaries because I hate the word influencer," he says. "It has a connotation of the kind of person who is just famous on Instagram for posting hollow content or something like that."   Yash prefers the terms "creator" and "ambassador" because it better describes the action of creating content focused on a brand.   He says that keeping track of creators is a tough chore, and existing tools in the market are expensive. Plus, the current tools privatized transactions over relationships.   "Saral is right now the only tool on the market that puts the relationship front and center as opposed to the transaction of it," Yash says. "I like to call it relationship-focused influencer marketing, where you look at the creator as a person first and not just like a one-time salesperson."   Yash insists that small brands can do influencer marketing similar to more prominent brands. It's an essential tool because traditional practices - like Facebook ads - no longer have the same impact.   "(If) Facebook was working as well as it was in 2016, 2017, then we won't be having this conversation," he says. "But I think because these bad ads and cheap clicks are now no longer cheap, people have to look at these other, more organic, more human forms of marketing. And that is why influencer marketing is shining."   In Part 1, Yash talks about:   * Gratitude to the Internet for providing him access and opportunities from his home in Mumbai, India. * An overview of the Saral influencer marketing tool. * His background as a growth consultant. * The difference between an influencer and an ambassador. * Why the need for a tool like Saral. * The downfall of Facebook ads.   Join Ramon Vela and Yash Chavan as they break down the inside story on The Story of a Brand.   For more on Saral, visit: https://www.getsaral.com/    If you want to get more best practices around influencer marketing, Yash is offering a “Free ebook” for listeners: https://offers.getsaral.com    Subscribe and Listen to the podcast on all major apps. Simply search for “The Story of a Brand,” or click here to listen on your favorite podcast player: Listen now.   *   This episode is also brought to you by Sendlane.   If all DTC companies were forced to turn off Facebook ads, they'd be dead on arrival. Why is that?   They over-invest in paid acquisition and under-invest in retention.   Luckily, Sendlane makes it easy to solve this problem. Sendlane is an E-Commerce Customer Experience Platform helping hundreds of DTC brands to tighten their existing customer relationships.   Sendlane automates personalized customer experiences through Welcome and Abandoned Cart workflows, SMS, Deep Data Integrations with Shopify and WooCommerce, multi-store functionality, and much more.   Plus, they don't stand for lazy customer support. Their San-Diego-based team has an average 1-minute response time from a live human, making sure you never get stuck in a chat queue ever again.   Curious about how Sendlane can help your DTC brand grow?

It's called Dhabbawallah, when the Parsi and British communities living in Mumbai needed the convenience of a tiffin delivery service. A year earlier, in. 1889 a pair of Italian royals are widely considered to be the first pizza delivery customers. King Umberto and Queen Margherita recived a pizza from an ambition pizza shop as his way to popularize this new food item. It was one delivery, and build some interest in pizza delivery.  What followed in the US would be chinese food delivery, TV dinners, and the first guarantee of a timed delivery, with Domino's Pizza. More recently meal kits and meal delivery service expanded peoples food horizons with lesser known cuisines.  While this episode may seem out of place among all the first hand interviews with owners, chefs and industry folks, it really is not. Over and over Martha Lucius works with clients on their particular brand, knowing the history and the stories behind a niche proves to be a way to translate your business for your customers. Delivery services may not be new, but each owner can acknowledge it's impact on profitability. Do what's good for the health of the business and your teams.

Miért nem csókolóznak a bollywoodi filmekben? Milyen egy jó indiai katona? Mi köze a briteknek Bollywoodhoz? Az indiai filmipar gyártja a világon a legtöbb filmet, így messze maga mögé utasítja Hollywoodot is. Az indiai filmipart azonban nem kezelhetjük egységes tömbként, a nagy indiai nyelveknek megfelelően beszélhetünk különböző regionális filmgyártási központokról. A legszélesebb körben a Mumbai központú hindi nyelvű filmipar termékeit fogyasztják, amelyet világszerte és így Magyarországon is, bollywoodi filmekként ismerünk. A bollywoodi filmek igen izgalmas képet festenek az indiai társadalomról, és a mai adásban ezt a témát fogjuk közelebbről megvizsgálni. Vendégünk Fejes-Jancsó Dorottya az ELTE BTK Film-, média- és kultúraelméleti doktori programjának hallgatója, akinek témája, a bollywoodi mozi kortárs trendjeinek vizsgálata, mely már korábbi tanulmányai során is felkeltették érdeklődését.

Can a history of cure be more than a history of how disease comes to an end? In 1950s Madras, an international team of researchers demonstrated that antibiotics were effective in treating tuberculosis.

Ep. 72: Nupur Sharma, neo-feudalism and the geopolitical squeeze on India

Shadow Warrior by Rajeev Srinivasan

A version of this essay was published by firstpost.com at Nupur Sharma, neo-feudalism and the geopolitical squeeze on IndiaThe commentariat has rightly focused on the specifics of the Nupur Sharma incident, such as the alleged blasphemy, the apparent provocation, the possibly pro-forma outrage and the street-veto (cheered on by certain politicians who spoke ominously about tinder and spark). I couldn’t possibly improve on their perspectives. For instance Utpal Kumar wrote an excellent piece excoriating the cringe-inducing and thunderous ‘liberal’ response https://www.firstpost.com/opinion/nupur-sharma-has-erred-no-doubt-but-why-are-liberals-mutedly-supporting-islamist-challenge-to-her-right-to-life-10767521.html; and I would add that ‘feminists’ were also notable by their absence. The blood-curdling death threats being hurled at Nupur, the fact that she has been hanged in effigy, and the related riots that appear to be astroturfed, are all deplorable.  I would like to look at the whole thing from the point of view of geopolitics. India is in the process of being squeezed badly.Thanks for reading Shadow Warrior! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.Soft StateThere are a couple of perspectives of interest. One is a throwback to the dark days of 1989-90, when the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban induced the most recent genocide of Kashmiri Hindus, because the terrorists Pakistan had assigned to their Afghan battle were (as they are now) available; and this time, thanks to Biden’s largesse, they have billions worth of weapons. A related historical incident is the hijack of Indian Airlines 814 in 1999, and what, in hindsight, was a strategic blunder committed by India, with Jaswant Singh personally escorting the freed terrorists to Kandahar, who then proceeded to wreak general havoc.  In both cases, the Pakistani takeaways were predicated on triumphalism. They could see the dictum in their Brigadier General SK Malik’s The Qoranic Concept of War being put in place. “Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means, it is the end itself.” They could with good reason argue that they were on a trajectory towards a final victory, and urge a final thrust that would bring the house of cards down.The result was the Parliament attack, 2001. Operation Parakram. Godhra, 2002. And eventually 26/11 Mumbai in 2008.Pakistan and its friends in India have been nothing if not lucid: they openly declare their intent to wreak havoc on India, balkanize it, massacre people, do gazwa-e-hind. There is every reason to believe that they mean what they say. To pretend otherwise is to repeat the US folly vis-a-vis China: China kept saying what they intended to do, and the US kept pretending not to hear; and we know where that got Obama and Biden. The point is that every capitulation, every demand conceded, is viewed as a sign of weakness, and invites the next, ever more outrageous demand. India today may be going down this slippery slope, again. As it did repeatedly in the 20th century. The deep freeze on CAA was a capitulation. The withdrawal of the Farm Bills was a capitulation. And now the silencing of Nupur Sharma is a capitulation. If the State blinks on Agnipeeth, that would be another capitulation. There may well be good reasons for all of them, but the fact is that they perpetuate the notion that India is a Soft State.Thank you for reading Shadow Warrior. This post is public so feel free to share it.Neo-Feudalism and the Serf StateThe second perspective of interest is global. Sociologist and demographer Joel Kotkin writes in his latest book The Coming of Neo-Feudalism that we are slipping into a period where there is a stark contrast between the ruling elites, in particular the tech billionaires, and the ruled proletariat. In other words, a return to the European era of feudalism, where a ruling class lorded it over the serfs, who basically had no rights. On Singularity Radio, leftist and former finance minister of Greece, Yanis Varoufakis, echoes the same sentiment and argues it is ‘techno-feudalism’. He goes one step further to state that Capitalism is dead, whereas Kotkin only goes so far as to argue that a zaibatsu-ization of the US economy is happening, and the economic systems of the US and China are converging.In a Hoover Institution podcast based on his Foreign Affairs article, geo-strategist John Mearsheimer suggests a convergence from a political angle too. He argues that the difference between a democracy and an autocracy are limited so far as great-power rivalries go, and that the US made an extraordinarily foolish move to enable China to rise. Says he: Engagement may have been the worst strategic blunder any country has made in recent history: there is no comparable example of a great power actively fostering the rise of a peer competitor. And it is now too late to do much about it.Put these two arguments together, and you get an interesting picture. On the one hand, feudalism requires an upper class and a lower class. It could be argued that feudalism never in fact went away in Europe, or even the supposedly class-less US. Social mobility there is far less than one has been led to believe, according to research by Raj Chetty, then at Stanford. There indeed are traditional elites in the US: the East-Coast Wall Street types, for instance. Their kids all go to prep school like Philipps Andover or Exeter, then on to Ivy League colleges, and then on to Goldman Sachs or Morgan Stanley, and eventually maybe to government. This is, for all intents and purposes, an upper caste, which is also largely endogamous. Just try breaking into it: it is well-nigh impossible. Then there are the lower-caste serfs, the plebeian yahoos who are subjected to ‘manufacturing consent’ on a daily basis. They were earlier manipulated via the big newspapers, but now the tech platforms do an even better job. If you don’t believe me, see how the Overton window has shifted sharply in favor of woke tropes over the last few years. Or, for a more tactical shift, note how the topic of heated discussion has gone from Roe v Wade to school shootings to Jan 6 within days. I am reminded of a line from Pink Floyd, Welcome to the Machine: “What did you dream? It’s alright, we told you what to dream”.In contrast to Kotkin, I would argue that there is no neo-Feudalism, it is the same lovely practice that never went away. Kotkin also said, in passing, “Silicon valley is full of indentured servants from Asia”. He meant India. He is right, and that is the role of India in the game: producing raw materials, including serfs, for the consumption of the upper caste feudal lords.Feudalism applies also to nations. Whites have for a few centuries been the feudal lords, and their colonies, especially India, have been the untermenschen serfs. That is their pre-ordained role. As Mearsheimer candidly admits, the US blundered in allowing China to escape from serfdom. And it is too late. But of course it is not too late to contain India! They have no intention of blundering again, or allowing India to rise to be a great power as well. China has become an honorary upper caste country by bulking up its economy and especially its military. But applications are now firmly closed for membership in this club. Even rich Japan has only a tenuous membership. It is in the interests of the feudal lord countries to keep the serf countries as they are.In this, the US and China are as one: there is no way India can be allowed to gain power. This may explain the fury with which US and European commentators (eg Bruno Macaes) greeted India’s stance in the Ukraine war, of keeping aloof from it. That’s not how a serf state is supposed to act: it should do the Gunga Din tango.This mindset is why the US has continually armed and financed Pakistan, propping up a failed state that should have been dismantled long ago: it is meant to contain India. This is also why you have the likes of Thenmozhi Soundararajan running rampant in the US shouting about caste. This is why a propagandist like Audrey Truschke is not ejected from polite company. This is why USCIRF, an evangelist propaganda body, gets free rein to pontificate about India. This is why India is marginalized in the Quad, and the upper caste countries (Anglosphere is by definition upper caste) close ranks to form AUKUS. India must be put in its place, and that’s why a million mutinies are funded by the Ford Foundation and George Soros, and Xinhua and other CCP arms. There are plenty of sleeper cells armed and ready to riot on command. Add to this mix the oil states of West Asia. Qatar has its giant natural gas reserves, and India is increasingly addicted to LNG including for its newly-minted rural women consumers of cooking gas. Furthermore, Biden is genuflecting at the feet of Saudi Arabia, as Glenn Greenwald writes in a stinging comment on substack. Having successfully prevented India from buying cheap Iranian oil, and pushing hard to prevent it from buying cheap Russian oil, the Americans are forcing India to be ever-more dependent on West Asian states. Never mind that India has buyer power: of course the sellers have to sell the stuff to somebody to keep their economies ticking over.Also never mind the fallacy of the argument that India must kowtow to these Gulf states, in case they send back the Indians working there. Well, that is not charity, either. If the Indians were ejected (let us recall what happened to Uganda in Idi Amin’s time), the serfs running everything would be gone, and the feudal lords would actually have to get their hands dirty doing something other than being rich and idle. The fact that India has not asserted itself forcefully means that the pressure tactics are working: the malign forces have drawn first blood. Chances are that worse is yet to come. 1600 words, Jun 15, 2022 updated Jun 19, 2022 This is a public episode.

The story of India and Indians in World War II has been overshadowed by other historical events of the 1940s, a busy decade that included such historical watersheds as Indian independence (and the anti-colonial nationalist movement that led to it), as well as the partition of the Indian subcontinent. Indeed, many in Europe and North America, and even many in India, probably know very little about how crucial India was to the outcome of World War II. India and Indians were a very important part of World War II, and it is not an exaggeration to say that the role of India and Indians was indispensable in securing the victory of the British and Allied powers against Nazi Germany and imperial Japan. The stories of Indians in World War II have often been forgotten in popular accounts and memories of the conflict, but that is now changing, as more authors and scholars cover this subject. Through highlighting the remarkable life and career of Jehangir Anklesaria, a heroic Parsi (Indian Zoroastrian) doctor who lived in Rangoon at the outbreak of the conflict, Dr. Tehmton S. Mistry's The 24th Mile: An Indian Doctor's Heroism in War-torn Burma (Harper Collins, 2021) makes a major contribution to our memory of World War II with the unique story of one individual during the most devastating conflict in human history. When the Japanese invaded Burma in December 1941, Jehangir sent his wife and daughter by ship to India, but feeling duty-bound, he decided to stay back in Burma. He joined the war effort and worked tirelessly to quell a cholera epidemic. He then found himself one of thousands on the trek through the treacherous jungle and mountains towards safety in northeastern India. The book reminds us of the difference a single individual's foresight and leadership can make in bringing about better outcomes, even amidst war and disease. The 24th Mile is a work of creative non-fiction, which means that although the storyline abides by the historical narrative of the period and follows historical figures, the author has taken the creative license to create secondary fictional characters, write descriptions, and recreate dialogues among the characters. The author, Tehmton Mistry, is part of the extended family and next generation of the protagonist's family, and he successfully and evocatively recreates the story of Jehangir's grit and heroism in a death-defying journey to safety in a major theater of World War II. Tehmton S. Mistry is a retired obstetrician and gynaecologist who practiced in St. Louis, Missouri. Born and raised in Mumbai (Bombay), Dr. Mistry moved to the United States from India in the early 1970s, together with his wife – whom he met when he studied at St. Xavier's College, Mumbai. The protagonist of The 24th Mile, Dr. Jehangir Anklesaria, was his wife's uncle and a key influence on their early life. Now retired and living in California, Dr. Mistry enjoys writing, among other hobbies. Shatrunjay Mall is a PhD candidate at the Department of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He works on transnational Asian history, and his dissertation explores intellectual, political, and cultural intersections and affinities that emerged between Indian anti-colonialism and imperial Japan in the twentieth century.

The story of India and Indians in World War II has been overshadowed by other historical events of the 1940s, a busy decade that included such historical watersheds as Indian independence (and the anti-colonial nationalist movement that led to it), as well as the partition of the Indian subcontinent. Indeed, many in Europe and North America, and even many in India, probably know very little about how crucial India was to the outcome of World War II. India and Indians were a very important part of World War II, and it is not an exaggeration to say that the role of India and Indians was indispensable in securing the victory of the British and Allied powers against Nazi Germany and imperial Japan. The stories of Indians in World War II have often been forgotten in popular accounts and memories of the conflict, but that is now changing, as more authors and scholars cover this subject. Through highlighting the remarkable life and career of Jehangir Anklesaria, a heroic Parsi (Indian Zoroastrian) doctor who lived in Rangoon at the outbreak of the conflict, Dr. Tehmton S. Mistry's The 24th Mile: An Indian Doctor's Heroism in War-torn Burma (Harper Collins, 2021) makes a major contribution to our memory of World War II with the unique story of one individual during the most devastating conflict in human history. When the Japanese invaded Burma in December 1941, Jehangir sent his wife and daughter by ship to India, but feeling duty-bound, he decided to stay back in Burma. He joined the war effort and worked tirelessly to quell a cholera epidemic. He then found himself one of thousands on the trek through the treacherous jungle and mountains towards safety in northeastern India. The book reminds us of the difference a single individual's foresight and leadership can make in bringing about better outcomes, even amidst war and disease. The 24th Mile is a work of creative non-fiction, which means that although the storyline abides by the historical narrative of the period and follows historical figures, the author has taken the creative license to create secondary fictional characters, write descriptions, and recreate dialogues among the characters. The author, Tehmton Mistry, is part of the extended family and next generation of the protagonist's family, and he successfully and evocatively recreates the story of Jehangir's grit and heroism in a death-defying journey to safety in a major theater of World War II. Tehmton S. Mistry is a retired obstetrician and gynaecologist who practiced in St. Louis, Missouri. Born and raised in Mumbai (Bombay), Dr. Mistry moved to the United States from India in the early 1970s, together with his wife – whom he met when he studied at St. Xavier's College, Mumbai. The protagonist of The 24th Mile, Dr. Jehangir Anklesaria, was his wife's uncle and a key influence on their early life.

Nordic Combined is the only sport on the current Olympic program that is only open to men. Many athletes are working to change that, including Team USA's Annika Malacinski. We talk with Annika about how the sport works, which surprisingly involves a lot of body measurements (see: ski jumping suit scandal at Beijing), and we learn about one of the best winner's prizes ever. Annika gets pretty frank with us about how tough it is to not have her discipline in the Olympics. It tried to get into 2022, but was denied. Its attempt to get into 2026 needs your help! Next week, the International Olympic Committee Executive Board will meet, and finalizing the Milan-Cortina 2026 sports program is on the agenda. You can show your support for inclusion of women's Nordic combined by: Contacting an IOC member. Signing the Change.org petition. Posting support on social media - be sure to tag USA Nordic, FIS Nordic Combined, US Ski and Snowboard, Team USA, the Olympic Games and local/national news outlets with your support or opinion. Here's USA Nordic's call to action. Follow Annika on Instagram and TikTok!
