Josh Talks in collaboration with Facebook is hosting their fourth event of the year on the 19th of August, 2017 in Kochi. The day-long conference cuts across genres, bringing you a wide narrative on India. We explore an idea of measuring growth and progress that governments don’t want people to know; a comedian talks about why people take offence; we find out what a doctor learnt from the terminally ill; what inspires a young prodigy to explode on stage with his guitar, and a lot more.
Uplifting stories and thought-provoking experiences come together to take you on a roller coaster journey of ideas.
