The full set of photos (98) from the IAA Debate from the Social Media Week Mumbai. View the Album.
Here are the photos from the high decibel debate organized by IAA. The debate had (from left to right), Jawahar Sircar (CEO of Prasar Bharthi), Suhel Seth (CEO, Counselage), Gul Panag (actress, model) as the moderator, Subramania Swamy (parlimentarian) and yours truly. The topic was ‘Social Media does not help the socio-economic of a country’. At the end of the debate, there was show of hands as to who supported whom and it was no surprise that we won. Afterall, what do you expect from a predominantly social media savvy audience.
At Social Media Week Mumbai, a high powered panel discussion taking place on Monday, 23rd Sept. Excellent initiative by Neville Taraporewallah and Rohit Varma.
Excited and a trifle nervous to step into the big bad boys club. Each one of the gang is vociferous and highly opinionated. This high octane debate is part of Social Media Week Mumbai taking place on 23rd September in BlueFrog Mumbai. The topic of the debate is “Social Media does not contribute to the Socio economic growth of the economy : Yes or No?”. No surprises which side I’m on. I’m pairing with Dr.Subramania Swamy. My opponents are the fiesty Suhel Seth and Jawhar Sircar, CEO of Prasar Bharti. This should be fun and I’ve already started to sharpen my knives.
For those in and around Pune, this would be a great event to attend. Personally, am super excited to learn from my fellow panelists.
One of the highlights of last week was the 39th Annual Day Celebrations at Geetha Matriculation School. I wanted to steer away from the boring Chief Guest lecturing mode. The kids had enough of lectures in their school and its time for them to see that Chief Guests can be fun too. I chose three stories, each with a subtle message, to emphasize my points. Kids love interactive stories and from the response, I knew they connected well.
