Three welcomes because that's just how excessive we are. Three welcomes because there are too many members, and they will all greet you with gracious warmth until you feel just the slightest bit overwhelmed Read More
Somehow, though, I wasn't put off by this lack of acknowledgement of their easier-than-normal lives. It was interesting to watch them flaunt the diamonds and jewels on their fingers in their expensive Juhu-Bandra houses without feeling a piercing discontentment about their ignorance. Read More
Before I moved to The Netherlands, I had seen pictures of the doughy dishes offered in the oliebollenkraam. They looked similar to bonda, a popular deep-fried snack in Madras that has often ostracised me from friend and family groups because of my distaste for it. Read More
I interviewed several individuals - followers, sceptics, and critics of Sadhguru to understand the effect of his teachings. To retain the essence of their impression of the mystic, I have quoted them verbatim not to lose them in translation or misinterpret them. Read More
I scanned the entire group for some prompt by any of the members on the turmoil which gripped the country, but it seemed like I was in a bubble where the CAA did not exist. Read More

About Us

Anant Shah

Anant Shah- Founder

Anant Shah (just as his Instagram bio says) has always been interested in connecting people though their different cultures. He is drawn to this goal, given his background of a family of artists, as well as his work at several different organisations such as the People Tree with Orijit Sen, The Conflictorium in Ahmedabad and The UN (AIDS) Communications and Global Advocacy Team in Geneva. As a graduate of History and International relations at Ashoka University, he co-founded and set up the Ashoka Literature festival in 2019. Longing to increase this critical discourse on contemporary and traditional Indian Cultures he finally decided to start InCulture.

Kartik Sundar- Founder

Kartik Sundar loves nothing more than opining on cultural content. An avid writer for many publications, the decision to start one of his own came from recognizing a substantive lack of critical discourse around Indian culture today. He graduated Ashoka University with a degree in History & International Relations and wishes to complete further education with a focus on media and cultural studies.

Who We Are

We at inCulture are looking to shed light on what we see as an emerging new Indian culture as well as paying dues to the traditions that have been integral in shaping the current space. We want to try and create a space where critical reflection on cultural events, individuals, works of art, or practices can be fostered. Rather than exist as a cultural news outlet that merely serves as a bulletin board for the latest releases, inCulture will look to curate multi-medium pieces that seek to inform readers about aspects of our culture that make you think beyond an immediate reaction. In particular, we strive to look critically at Indian culture by investigating it under four distinct categories – film & theatre, music, spaces, and society.
