NDTV 24x7 trudges on ‘Uncommon Ground’ with Rohini Nilekani

NDTV 24x7 is coming out with an eight-part series, ‘Uncommon Ground’, which covers fundamental issues that confront India like food, healthcare, employment, energy, land rights, financial inclusion, access to transport and sustainable development. The show, which premiered on July 27, brings leaders to discuss the challenges that India faces today with journalist and social activist Rohini Nilekani. The will be show aired on Sundays at 9.30 pm.

Nilekani, who anchors the show, uses her experience to question, provoke and stimulate the high profile participants. Marked by feisty dialogue and intense arguments, each episode of ‘Uncommon Ground’ will have a well known corporate head facing an equally well known social activist and developmental scientist. With no escape and no holds barred, the two leaders with very different perspectives confer about complex issues, exchange ideas on the solutions that India needs as its soaring economy rapidly transforms the country and its people.

Manvi Sinha Dhillon, Senior Editor, NDTV 24x7, said, “‘Uncommon Ground’ is unique because there has never been a dialogue like this before on Indian television. Sustainable development means different things to different people and this show attempts to draw some very influential Indians to the table to thrash out crucial development issues. We hope that this show will open up lines of communication that will spur the growth of modern India in a manner that is both rewarding and inclusive.”

Facing the camera together would be: Mukesh Ambani and Dr RK Pachauri debating energy solutions for India; Anand Mahindra and Medha Patkar analysing the complexities of land rights; YC Deveshwar and Sunita Narain defining new standards for sustainable development; Sunil Mittal and Aruna Roy debating the right employment model; Habil Khorakhiwala and Mirai Chatterjee searching for a universal healthcare solution; Uday Kotak and Vijay Mahajan striving for financial inclusion; MS Banga and Suman Sahai examining India’s nutrition challenges; and Rahul Bajaj and Prof Dinesh Mohan analysing the pros and cons of public versus private transport.
