Pathfynder’s rendezvous with Eminent speakers at Talk Journalism 2019!

Pathfynder’s association with one of its kinds and India’s only media festival Talk Journalism is not new. Earlier, in its 4th and 5th edition, Jaipur Beat the brainchild of Pathfynder got an opportunity to be the official digital media partner for one of the most talked-about media conferences in the nation. The event was covered through our blogs, live coverages and tweets, creating short video interviews of the eminent journalists and personalities like Karan Thapar, Suhasini Haidar, Ben Wizner, Tulika Devi, Ayaz Menon, Siok Siok Tan, Piyush Mishra, Lotfullah Najafizada, Akash Banerjee and not to be missed some fun-filled interacting sessions with the visitors and celebrities both.

Mentoring the aspiring journalism students was altogether an exciting experience where the students from the different parts were selected. The main purpose of the newsroom was to provide an opportunity for the students to understand the dynamics of news reporting by doing it themselves.

The students were briefed about their assignments of live reporting from the ongoing sessions during the Festivals. Dynamically those reports were reviewed, edited followed by instant upload on the Talk Journalism’s Website.

The participants from various schools of journalism returned home not just with their certificates but a first and experience of how news publishing works in an actual newsroom.

Apart from the Newsroom responsibilities, Pathfynder also conducted personal interviews of the celebrity journalists and political figures and could get their views on the issues concerning Indian politics, environment, and journalism.

Of the eminent speakers, we got a chance to personally speak to Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Ravish Kumar, Ritu Kapur, Sreenivasan Jain, HR Venkatesh, Sharda Ugra, Cyrus Broacha, Nick Davies and Ayaz Memon in a personal interview.
Ravish Kumar in his bold avatar, talks about the issues surrounding the current government and its implications on the students of journalism.
On his association with Talk Journalism since the beginning, famous sports columnist, Ayaz Memon has always been a person to look up to. We caught him having a tete-a-tete with, Gaurav Hajela Co-Founder Pathfynder, about the changes around Indian and International Cricket.
