    Happy to be a part of the two day gala. Great to see journalism and different facets being discussed with youngsters, good to see that the organizers gave space to language media as well.
    Rahul Dev
  • Feels good to participate in a forum that is all about promoting better journalism
    Suhashini Haider
  • Great event, very well organised. If Talk Journalism could be the connect between journalists, academics, civil society and people it will do a great service by pushing good journalism
    Rajdeep Sardesai
  • I was honored to be invited to what was a truly impressive and distinctive event – in one part global but also very much a reflection of Indian media. It is poised now to become a major date on the journalism calendar
    Gerard Ryle
  • I was happy and honored to speak about investigative reporting at the conference, and I hope I helped some young journalists to learn some old tricks. But from my selfish point of view, I was even happier to listen to some of the finest voices in Indian journalism and to meet them socially. That is how I learn.
