Inkpot is a very positive development to showcase our culture, because that`s ultimately our country`s biggest asset in many ways. This showcasing of literature, music, art, theatre, design, magic, all of these things at Inkpot India Conclave is what privileges India at its best

Conferences like Inkpot are super important because they create platforms for all kinds of ideas and thoughts and without an idea you can’t evolve as a human or as a society. And the more we have more of such platforms, the better it is for writers, for all of the cultural aspirations we have for our country and for our society.

I think Inkpot Conclave is a great idea. What I like about Inkpot is that there is a variety of topics and choices of panelists and people speaking; it’s very heterogenous. It represents different shades of opinion and it touches upon very sensitive issues, contentious issues but in a sensible manner and this allow for public discourse to happen.

Inkpot is a wonderful festival. From everything that I have been hearing and seeing, it is something that’s making people aware about what’s really happening and how they could go back to their roots. And it’s not just about cosmetics or wellness but all fields and it’s really been an eye-opener for me. I really think it will help in the progress of India.

We need festivals like Inkpot so that people come together, thinkers come together and where there is discussion, it always ignites, sparks some interest and some other doors and windows are opened.

I think festivals like Inkpot serve a very good purpose: they disseminate ideas and people have so many original ideas or they are reinforcing old ideas and that goes to a much wider audience. Today`s technologies` dissemination platforms are so vast that dissemination of ideas happen very quickly.

Through festivals such as Inkpot people are trying to express themselves freely.This itself carries forward because it leaves a memory in someone`s mind; people will go and share it. With the digital medium you can share so much of what is being done here at lit fests like these. The touch and feel of people, the spirit of people, the diverse lives that are coming together here at Inkpot are a reminder of what our country is.

Conclaves are very important and Inkpot is doing great by organizing something like this. It is due to such events that you begin to think, reflect and then also permeate that knowledge across people who have attended that conclave and thereby be participant to such knowledge. Unfortunately we have stopped thinking as much as we should be and conclaves like these give you the opportunity to do so.

The important thing about Inkpot is that it is driven by a young person Simar Malhotra who has a dream and who has got young people involved in generating an awareness which is the need to recognize our cultural roots. She is doing it through a platform where there are dancers, musicians, designers and writers and t is indeed a great way to push a dream forward

The most important tool for change is dialogue. Festivals and conferences like Inkpot create such a dialogue, allow for diverse opinions to be shared and allow for people to think and then move forward hopefully in a positive manner

Conclaves like Inkpot are important for meeting and exchanging ideas. Today we are living in a world of digital technology where people hardly talk to each other physically. We often talk to each other on Whatsapp or Facebook but don`t meet physically which is the unfortunate part. Lit fests such as Inkpot should happen in closer intervals and I must congratulate the organizers for involving so many youngsters in this conclave

Oh I think we need more and more of Lit Fests like Inkpot for sure. The more conversations you have around whatever you want to share with the world, the better it will be. I have attended three of Inkpot sessions today and learnt so much. If we bring these conversations to every day India, we will change India one story at a time.
