- What: “Poison On Platter”
- Tangy: Inclusion of harmful chemicals in food is not something new you will hear. What we also need to keep hearing is the seriousness of the issue and its huge impact on us. We often get carried away in curiosity to taste something new, failing to check or even realize that the new item on the menu is richer in pesticides than in nutrition. Check out some startling facts with Pradeep.

- Who: Nizam MD S
- What: “What We Gave & What We Got! Education In India”
- Tangy: The difference between Knowledge and Education is like the talk between the Earth and the Sky. They both exist, they have their own merits but only one takes you to elevation, satisfaction and at one point in time makes you say, “I don’t want to learn, I want to give”. Which one is that? It is knowledge. But that is not all. it is literacy that proves who goes where. In India or to the US? India has been fighting odd battles to achieve literacy. Lets take a look at Nizam’s perspective on education, Alphabet and more.

Neer takes us close to why he said what he said for Dalits.
- Who: Bilna Sandeep
- What: “Why Should You Talk To Your Kids In Mother Tongue?”
- Tangy: Worried about your child’s development? Talk to them in your mother tongue. Yes, you might at one point in time feel that English is the most widely used language, but also remember that a mother tongue is more than just a means of communication. It is the way in which a child relates to the culture, heritage and the feeling of belonging to a united system called family. Bilna elaborates.
