Baithak: Conversations in Policy

This June, we hosted four Baithaks, our monthly policy dialogues – in New Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad, bringing together 81 keen alumni to discuss contemporary policy and political and-economic concerns.

Our facilitators included policy experts and practitioners like Barun Mitra, Founder, Liberty Institute; Nikhil Mehra, Advocate; Prashant Narang, Advocate; Dr. D. Dhanuraj, Centre for Policy Research; Dr. Ashwin Mahesh, Founder, Mapunity; and Ragini Bajaj Chaudhary, Director Caspian Impact Advisors.

The baithaks engaged our participants in a vibrant dialogue on the relevance of the Constitution (First Amendment) Act of 1951, the role and scope of private K-12 education in India, federalism and citizen participation, the recent 2019 and policy challenges ahead, regulatory challenges in credit access to MSMEs, and India's policy approach towards Pakistan.
