Hafta 412: The ‘most satisfying’ career and all the FIFA controversies

It’s an all-Newslaundry panel this week with Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Mehraj D Lone and Anand Vardhan. The conversation begins with speculation about Mehraj’s future career choices. Anand mentions bureaucracy while Manisha talks about the media. “If money isn’t your main priority, teaching is the best. The most satisfying in the long run,” adds Abhinandan. Then discussion shifts to what Abhinandan calls “the most exciting FIFA ever”, as the panel discusses all the controversial headlines, Messi’s big win and Qatar’s management of the tournament. “What was the stated objective of Qatar behind FIFA and was it counterproductive,” asks Abhinandan.
