Who’s the most important person at an Indian wedding? The bride? The groom? The parents? None of them. It’s the uncle, the self-appointed head of all things wedding-related. Is the jalebi is not yet ready? Don’t worry, the uncle will take care of it. What if an uncle misbehaves with the guests? That’s why you have the “head uncle” keeping a close eye on the proceedings! Also on the episode: Anuvab hates going to school reunions, Kunaal plans a trip to Egypt, the duo play a game of dead or alive and wonder whether a clock repairman cares much for time.
Our Last Week is a fortnightly podcast by neuro-science researcher and physicist Anuvab Pal and world renowned philosopher Kunaal Roy Kapur. They come together to create an event horizon that looks at the black hole of human existence with a gravitational lens trained specifically on the human week that just went by. They’re just two guys trying to make sense of it all. Deep, bruv.
