  • "If we desire respect for the law, we must first make the law respectable."
    - Louis D. Brandeis

    The Final episode of How To Citizen deserves a good quote, amirite? Yes, we've reached the end of a ten episode long journey of this Podcast which delves into our lovely 8th Grade CBSE civics book.

    Sadface

    In this season finale, Meghnad & Shreyas have instigator-in-chief as their guest: Kunal "Wah-Modiji-Wah" Kamra. He talks to our hosts about 'Law & Social Justice's where they discuss how absolutely crappy the enforcement of our laws is, how there is an elitist bias in pretty much everything and how Social Justice is kind of an unrealistic concept in present day India. This is even more true, according to our Civics book, because it gives the example of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy to prove a point.
