This week Kinnari and Mitali engage in dialogue with a family member, Ankur, a loyal reader who messaged us after reading our last post “The magic that turns thoughts into reality”. Ankur is from Pune, India and has always strived to give his family a good life. In 2010 at the age of 35, he uprooted his family (wife and two kids aged 9 and 2) from India to immigrate to the Bay Area and take a job in tech. He talks to us about one of his first memories of turning a deep desire into reality, a situation that was “improbable if not impossible” for a middle class educated man like himself growing up in India during the 1980s and 1990s (very different from the economic climate that is in India today).
We also talk about our role as parents and our dreams for Disco Dialogues and Disco Chats - to provide a platform for each of your stories to be shared and for our collective wisdom to be accessed by younger and older generations. Listen to our conversation and let us know what resonated with you.
We love to hear from our readers - through your comments on Substack, email messages and texts. Let us know if you want to share your story with our readers and listeners - we are always up for a good dialogue!
