  • Uma Shankar demonstrates what happens when you milk the world dry.  Why social security was introduced during the industrial revolution.
  • Role models and the identity crisis for youths.  The various role models for people throughout history and what has happened to youths now that the role models are film stars instead of great personalities.  A study of history of Gandhiji's Satyagraha.
