I wrote the 3rd and last of my pieces for New Indian Express on ‘We are all Appizens, Not Citizens’. The link is here.
In the article, I argued how thanks to new apps / tech and wealth, ‘People like us’ can transfer between Indian cities comfortably today. Yet, if apps make settling down easier than ever, they make true citizenship of our cities tougher than ever. We increasingly interpret and navigate cities not through real life interactions but through these apps, making us appizens, not citizens.
