Traverse philosophical landscapes illuminated by the youthful wisdom captured in the writings of 18-year-old author Karan Lad.

His book, A Glitch in the Simulation, sheds light on how we inadvertently design the values and morality for the weakest while often forgetting the powerful. As we build faster cars, we forget the roads and laws that punish speeding; while we value the best designer wear, we are indifferent to the low wages paid to the workers who make it. The book discusses the paradox of our existence and seeks to search for new answers from a fresh pair of eyes with a challenging perspective. It unapologetically questions our belief system via the lens of a young man’s attempt to find his own meaning of life, happiness, purpose, and existence.

Joining the author in conversation about his early interest in philosophy, his journey toward getting published as a young writer, and his process will be philosophy enthusiast and jazz musician Abhijit Nath. The session ends with an audience Q&A.
