“Ever since Scherezade and the 1001 stories, we have understood the immense power stories can cast, to engage with our listeners, our audiences and our consumers. Whether it is a grandmother telling her grandson the story of Raja Harischandra and teaching him the value of honesty or a brand talking about its USP to position itself more firmly in the consumer’s mind or Star Wars creating a powerful and worldwide equity through its depiction of an alternate universe, stories have taught, transformed, invigorated and entertained all of us.

And we as storytellers and spin doctors have understood all too well that the more we immerse and draw our listeners into our stories the less likely they are to chop off our heads (or our TRPs) whether we are telling them the story through a sitcom, a film, a brand launch, an organization’s growth path or even an annual report!

As today’s topic invites us to introspect on whether story telling is at the centre stage of media success, I would like to put forward not the obvious answer which is naturally a resounding yes, but to suggest to all of you that story telling is indeed not only at the centre of all media success but at the very fulcrum of building anything that is sustainable and long lasting, not just with viewers and listeners but indeed with all stakeholders associated with building an organization, a project or even a country.

While story telling through TV, films, digital and radio is the business we are in, equally stories are a powerful way to engage with all our other stakeholders and constituents both internal or external. Read more

Meet Some Of The Notable Indians On Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia 2018 List

With the highest number of honorees on this year’s 30 Under 30 Asia list – 65 in total – young Indians are storming the startup scene, excelling in a diverse array of occupations.

Given the current median age in the country is just 27 years old, this should be of little surprise. However what does surprise is that this is a group of Indians who are focused on giving back to their country through their endeavors, in whatever way they can.

Targeting the millennial market

Bobble Keyboard’s 26-year-old cofounder Ankit Prasad is one of the list honorees looking at the millennial market. Determined to make the mobile texting experience more individual, visual and expressive, he created the Bobble Keyboard along with cofounder Mohd Wassem. Download the app, take a selfie, and the technology will create a cartoon image of you to apply to the keyboard’s database of stickers, GIFs, fonts, emojis, and comics — all for you to share with friends. They say their app has been downloaded around 10 million times to date.

As sustainability sets a trend, 28-year-old Rahul Gayam, CTO of Gayam Motor Works, joined brother Raja in creating electric auto-rickshaws and bikes for the Indian market. They’ve partnered with domestic taxi company Ola and with the government of Andhra Pradesh state on a fleet of electric vehicles.

There’s also Bala Sarda, the 26-year-old founder and CEO of Vahdam Teas. While there’s no shortage of homegrown tea brands in India, Sarda has raised $2 million in funding to operate a direct-to-consumer business. His model, designed to support domestic farmers, emphasizes freshness as they process, pack, and ship teas directly to the consumer within 24-72 hours of production.

Famous faces

While India is considered the birthplace of the game of polo as it is played today, the sport had largely lapsed into the arms of the army until the 19-year-old Royal, the titular Maharaja of Jaipur, Padmanabh Singh, an avid sportsman, took up its cause. Not only captaining the first Indian polo team to head to England in 20 years, the NYU-student was also the youngest Indian member of a World Cup polo team — and the youngest ever winner of the Indian Open Polo Cup. And that’s not all, Singh also takes his responsibilities as the King of Jaipur seriously, ensuring all traditional functions continue to be carried out, and keeping a hand in managing the family’s heritage properties across the city.

People Queue Up at Columbia Asia Hospital Screening Camp for Treatment of Neurological Disorders

People from Patiala and nearby regions flocked to a free screening camp organized by Columbia Asia Hospital in high numbers on 8th and 9th of this month for medical consultation, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disorders.

The camp was organized not only to treat patients but also to spread awareness and educate people about these disorders.

Doctors provided free medical consultation from morning 9 AM to 1:30 AM on over 15 neurological disorders, including stroke, brain hemorrhage, epilepsy, migraine, vertigo, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, neurotoxic diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and many others

“People have come in good numbers. Doctors have provided free consultation to 105people in the past two days. Neurological disorders are associated with social stigma and it is difficult for people to come out in open and go for medical consultation. Therefore, it felt all the more good to see people coming out of their closets and discuss their problems” said Dr. Satwant Sachdeva, Consultant Neurologist, Columbia Asia Hospital, Patiala.

Around 3 crore people in India suffer from neurological disorders, with an approximate prevalence of 2400 people per lakh population. Although there seems to be lack of data on a number of neurological disorders in Patiala, but an independent study published in 2015 for epilepsy, reported prevalence of over 7 persons per 1000 people,  while it showed a crude incidence rate of around 60 per  lakh population. In the given scenario, people need to be more aware of various neurological disorders prevalent so that they can go for the proper treatment and help those who are suffering from these diseases.
