    When Money is not being converted into dresses or food, it is chilling in the bank account. And just like humans, money doing nothing will make it dormant. So we have ways to make the money work for ourselves via investments, insurances, funds, bonds, and whatnot. Now, our hosts arent experts on the subject matter but they do have an important underlying message for all of us that saving is necessary. Whether you save for a rainy day metaphorically or to witness a beautiful rainy day in Costa Rica/Hawaii for real putting aside a part of your earning is always beneficial. Some of us, like Farhad, are scared to go to the bank. Some of us, like Sunetro, have a plan in place. And its all okay as long as you seek help and figure out ways to manage money. In TickTalk, the spotlight was upon the latest Bhima Jewellers ad.In SmallTalk, Farhad got nostalgic and spoke about Waghle Ki Duniya while Sunetro talks about Hereditary, streaming on Netflix.

    1 hr 2 min 9 sec

    The dictionary meaning of Homophobia is the dislike of or prejudice against gay people. But here, the buck doesnt stop there. It is discrimination, hatred, lack of empathy, a thirdgrade treatment, and not accepting them as belonging to the same species. In a time and age where the good and the bad are called out and highlighted, it takes the form of casual teasing, and most of the time it is downright disrespectful. And Farhad Sunetro are here to talk about it. They share experiences from their personal lives when it all started right from school which implies the importance of education and empathy right from the tender ages to now when they are adults navigating a more informed world, that still hasnt fully included them in crucial policies and laws btw.

    1 hr 20 min 40 sec

    The future is inclusive. And to build that, we need the present to consider it. How many of us have a person from the queer community as colleagues Maybe the media sector has more people as it is comparatively quite inclusive but then again policies rarely include them. Introducing a third check box in the gender section is not enough, and just having a PR exercise or rainbowing the logos in Pride month is just showoff. To talk about all this and more, we had Sonica Aron, Managing Partner at Marching Sheep an HR Consultancy that helps businesses be more inclusive. We cover important issues to begin with identifying the lack of diversity, to training staff to be more more accommodating and understanding of the queer folks, implementing policies and including them in existing policies, etc. We also discuss inclusion with reference to persons with disability, special needs, learning disabilities, etc as well.
