Diaries enable us work with ideas that can trigger new thinking, raise new questions and play beyond the usual boundaries set by the rigid structures and limits of columns on a printed newspaper page. They are an offshoot of our regular columns which we write to bring to focus "people less seen, voices less heard and perspectives less argued".
Our diaries open up spaces to reflect. These pages are free from the limits of structure, length, or time. They are an opportunity to roam free and reimagine our world to enable us explore new connections.
Our diaries report conversations with a range of practitioners, policy leaders and professionals who are ready to revisit the past, examine the present and look ahead with a critical eye and a sense of common good.
Reflections carry the capacity to clarify thinking, push learnings, and enable us and others draw from our work in ways we cannot while we are doing that work. That is why reflection is positioned as the highest form of learning.Read this note on reflections.
