Firstpost Conversations Ep 1 promo | How citizen-friendly is India's urban growth?

How “liveable” are Indian cities?

On the first episode of #FirstpostConversations, our host Rupali Mehra speaks to urban planner Lubaina Rangwala, BJP MLA Ashish Shelar and author Amrita Mahale on whether India's urban growth is citizen friendly. They discuss if the common man’s resilience is being taken advantage of, and the ways in which all the stakeholders of urban governance ought to come together, to ensure a better quality of life for the urban citizen.

Amid the clutter of breaking news and daily shout-fests on prime time TV, what happens to the issues and ideas which need our time, attention and involvement? We bring to you #FirstpostConversations, which address these critical questions and attempt to get at some answers.
