About the Videos:

Barry Schwartz – talks about his book ‘The Paradox of Choice’. – 21 mins.

Psychologist Barry Schwartz takes aim at a central tenet of western societies: freedom of choice. In Schwartz’s estimation, choice has made us not freer but more paralyzed, not happier but more dissatisfied. With examples of what modern progress has made possible for us – in the supermarket, in the world of communication, and other domains including marriage, family and gender – with sly humour he talks of the predicament we face in making our choices. All that we benefit from the choices we have is that it leaves us with a nagging and uncomfortable thought – Is the choice I made the right choice?

Mallika Sarabhai: Dance to change the world – 17 mins.

Mallika Sarabhai, a dancer/actor/politician, tells a transformative story in dance — and argues that the arts may be the most powerful way to effect change, whether political, social or personal.
