Illuminating India's Publishing Landscape: Culture 20 Creative Economy Forum
Updated: Jul 12
Unveiling the Transformative Power of Storytelling and Cultural Heritage
I am delighted to share that on Friday, July 14th, 2023, I will be speaking at the Culture 20: Creative Economy Forum at IGNCA in Janpath, New Delhi. This event brings together a diverse array of thinkers, creators, and innovators to celebrate and explore the dynamic landscape of India's creative economy.
As an author, it is an absolute honor to be invited to participate in one of the many panel discussions taking place during this prestigious event. In the time slot from 2:00-3:00 PM, I will join fellow authors and publishers on a panel that will delve into the multifaceted role of publishing in India.
Publishing, as an industry, has been a catalyst for transformation and social change. It amplifies the voices of authors and plays a pivotal role in shaping a nation's literary landscape and cultural ethos. In a diverse and vast country like India, the publishing industry has embraced the power of narratives to weave together the myriad threads of our rich heritage.
As an author, I have personally experienced the transformative power of storytelling. Through my book, "Rama - A Man for all Ages," I aimed to present an ancient epic in a manner that makes it relatable to a modern audience. Through publishing, I have been able to share my interpretation of this beloved tale with readers across the country, sparking conversations and encouraging a deeper understanding of our cultural heritage.
I am eagerly looking forward to this enlightening event and the opportunity to connect with fellow authors, publishers, and enthusiasts who are equally passionate about the power of storytelling. I am excited to learn from their journeys, gather fresh perspectives, and be inspired by the vast tapestry of creativity that defines our nation.
If you are in New Delhi on July 14th, I encourage you to join us at the Culture 20: Creative Economy Forum. Together, let us celebrate the power of creativity, the beauty of storytelling, and the boundless potential of India's creative economy. Stay tuned for my post-event reflections and insights as I bring you a glimpse of the enriching discussions during this gathering.
