Transnational Families: Hybrid Spaces

Good to meet my septuagenarian grand aunt after a decade and my uncle and niece for an elaborate bong lunch in Singapore today.Transnational families are hybrid spaces as my aunt joined in on a discussion on creative writing from Bombay on a call.My uncle not in the picture, is someone i have always met overseas, the last time at Burjuman in Bur Dubai couple of years back.

Thoughts on Changing Labor Geographies

I have been coaching talented individuals since i was 18, and one thing i can say with certainty is that one learns a lot more than the person by coaching (from their mistakes for instance) and that our education systems have failed to prepare the mind (and for life), and that we have a mental health crisis on our hands in this pandemic.

Rote learning prepares you for exams based on a template, rather than for black swans such as the pandemic.

Suppose you have been trained for the hospitality, aviation or retail sectors, and one has to now do things which are deeply uncomfortable which one is not ready. How do our labour geographies intersect with the mega trends of the day?
