Culture Commentary

About

At Centre for Cultural Leadership, our goal is to provide a cultural commentary with dharma at the centre, speaking on issues most fundamental to our civilisation and our continued existence in the future. This commentary will not be in a form of reaction over events, incidents and idea. Instead it will be a primary engagement with the lived realities of Bharatvarsha, making sense of Bharatvarsha’s and Hindu dharma’s place in the world in modern times. The anchor will be Sanatana dharma, the vantage point from which the world will be viewed.
