The Renaissance or “Rebirth”, which started in Europe, was a period of renewal, revival, and growth where new ideas in arts, sciences, philosophy, and literature were developed and advanced by a few individuals. The influence of the Renaissance was far-reaching and it shaped the future, leading to a modern era.

At Lakshmi’s Lounge, we aspire to cultivate the spirit of the Renaissance through intellectual dialogue and a spirited exchange of ideas. We aim to recapture this vision through conversations and interviews, where individuals can share their interests and aspirations and foster the growth of new ideas. We believe that if we can bring together people across disciplines, we can inspire a renaissance of thought and action. As Margaret Meade said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Lakshmi’s Lounge is an interview series that explores the personal journeys, aspirations and future plans of accomplished individuals who are making a difference in the world.
