Malcolmn Adiseshiah Memorial Lecture 2021 - Understanding Inequality

Understanding Inequality tries to draw attention to the unrecognized crisis (especially among the privileged) that faces us. It focuses on this blind-spot among India's privileged "middle class". Certain digital technologies pose a new threat. They can exacerbate these inequalities, especially as they have become more widely used in the post-pandemic period for basic services such as health and education. Finally, the lecture discusses the options available to us to remedy this situation.
