Rohini & Shiv

Who are we?

We’re a husband and wife team who wonder about the world that our children will inherit. Their world will be mind-bogglingly technologically advanced. That’s wonderful. But it may also be a world in which people don’t trust one another and don’t care to listen to opposing viewpoints. A world with less understanding.

This book is a mission driven effort for us. We live in a new reality—where the lines between fact and fiction are blurred. It’s on us to figure out how to navigate this new post-trust era as it isn’t good enough to blame our leaders and the media. We hope this book will help in a small way.
