Three urbanites from different age groups and walks of life — Reem Khokhar, Karishma Sehgal and Aditya Dubey — have opted to stop being passive and made irrevocable choices that align with the well-being of the planet.

Sonia Singh, editorial director, NDTV and mother of three, who has been reporting on the country’s ups and downs for over 20 years, tactfully balances an objective big-picture outlook with her maternal sixth sense. During a Sunday afternoon in her home, she offers Verve an even-handed take on re evaluating history and preparing for what lies ahead...
