Did walls create privacy, and is the internet going to destroy it? Is privacy a western idea, being imported to India?

Rahul Matthan, author of Privacy 3.0, is a guest in this two-episode special on privacy and data protection on the Pragati podcast.
Your personal data has never been more valuable, and has never been at more risk. The Supreme Court upheld the Right to Privacy in 2018, and now the Justice Srikrishna Committee has submitted its report and shared a draft law on data protection for India.

In this episode, Rahul walks hosts Hamsini and Pavan through the long history of privacy, from the age of hunter-gatherers, to paparazzis, to artificial intelligence.

In the next episode, also releasing on the same day, Rahul discusses independent India’s tryst with privacy.

You can check out Rahul’s new book Privacy 3.0: Unlocking Our Data-Driven Future on Amazon India.
