My cousin Pankaj has been working as one of the lead team members behind the construction of Riverfront in Kota.
He recently forwarded me a video of a Rajasthani folk song performance (which has been featured in Coke Studio as well).
One thing that particularly stayed with me watching that video was that a kid of 7-8 years is singing as a background performer in the live performance.
It is such a beautiful sight to witness.
Someone choosing to do things beyond internet. (Even I have an internet business).
A kid not embracing FOMO and actually embracing his roots.
Choosing to become more confident, joyful, and a heir to the wisdom of our culture that has transcended generations.
A couple of days back as I was watching a performance on Coke Studio, I truly wondered how will this get transferred into a generation of AI, crypto and internet.
This picture, makes me hopeful. Very hopeful.
