Jaishree Gopal - Videos

My work, and how I got interested...

Things not scripturally sanctioned got coded into the texts by vested interests

Hinduism has many inclusive aspects, but there are the exclusions too

Does religion play a role in today's life

The future of religious practice

Labels don't cause the problem, but the attitude of superiority does

How inequities get perpetuated in institutions and households

Social consciousness lacking in most organisations

Examples from the history of reform movements

Secularism does not mean absence of religious discussion

Views on Reservation, and managing diversity in IITs

We can develop role models by supporting the gifted children among the socially underprivileged

On gender equality

Women need not give up their careers for the sake of family

Corporates should consciously create diversity

Change necessitates breaking away...

Inclusiveness in politics

Nothing is impossible

Religion should not be race-based
