How do communities form? What keeps them together? And why do they split?
Referencing events discussed in the first episode of the season, Susheel recollects his behind-the-scenes experiences of Parkour’s birth and growth in Chennai. And over the course of the conversation, he captures a basic truth about many young communities: They form without structure and purpose. A bunch of people just get together to do something they love.
