0029 - Albus Dumbledore, Sachin Tendulkar & Free will

The Unlearning Playground

Mar 9 2023 • 4 mins

Do we humans have free will?
Can we really choose to act?
Do our choices matter eventually?
Is there an easy-to-understand answer to these questions?

I delve into these questions in this short and meaningful episode via a quote that, for me, defines the legacy of Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies.

I also take the example of an interview that Harsha Bhogle did on Sachin Tendulkar a while back.

I think this is a very moving intersection of two seemingly dissimilar topics to drive home a point that I find to be very important in our day and age.

Do I do all of this any justice?
Only one way to find out.
I'll see you in the playground.
Until next time.
Peace out.
