“The Dialogue“, conceptualized
and ideated by Where India Connects, plans to disrupt the existing talk show format of a one way communication, by introducing a Two-Way Dialogue Series.
The idea of The Dialogue is to invite celebrated personalities without any pre-decided topic of format, only for a Live Q&A Session with the Audience to create a talk show of a democratic format. The AMA (Ask Me Anything) will host celebrated speakers, entrepreneurs and celebrities for a session where they will be answering straight questions of the Live Audience & some pre-invited questions from social media, in a highly curated and moderated session of 50-70 people
The first Chapter of “The Dialogue Ext.” happened at Jayshree Periwal High School in presence of 200 students of Class XI, XII where Pawas Jain, Founder of Content & Media startup, gave insights on entrepreneurship and how students should focus on doing what they love, even if it is a good job, art or a startup. The entire idea was to motivate the students to follow their dreams and create opportunities for themselves.
Popular Singer, Music Producer and YouTuber Samarth Swarup, who has more than 65 lakhs views on YouTube, answered questions about his journey into singing, the support he received from his parents and how he has performed across the globe and has become a YouTube sensation at the age of 23.
The Dialogue saw the Main Jaipur Chapter happening on the same day at Global Centre for Entrepreneurship & Commerce, in Bani Park, where RJ Ravindra had an interactive session with the students and answered their questions about career choices, making a reputable name in an alternative career choice such as Radio Jockeying and taking out time for your hobbies and creative interests.
Dushyant Singh, Founder of OTH Cafe, also answered the questions of students around the cafe culture coming up in Jaipur and scope in the Food industry in coming years. Also, students asked number of questions around society pressure, stress management, and following the passion and making a business model around it.
Samarth Swarup once again interacted with students in this session also and closed the session with a song in his beautiful voice.
In this series, The Dialogue will now happen in Bangalore, Goa, Mumbai and New Delhi through February and March 2018, to initiate a new culture of Questioning and AMA sessions across the country.
