NDTV and Tata Consultancy Services Present Nobel Solutions
UK’s biggest Indian English news channel NDTV 24×7 and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have telecast a summit which has brought together Nobel Prize laureates on a common platform for the first time in India to focus on the country’s biggest problems.
In an endeavour to focus on some of the major challenges facing India and the world today, NDTV and TCS present the Nobel Solutions Summit. Taking place at the JW Marriot in New Delhi, the summit will be telecast today.
The speakers include Amartya Sen (Nobel Prize in Economics, 1998), Kailash Satyarthi (Nobel Peace Prize, 2014), David Trimble (Nobel Peace Prize, 1998), Venkatraman Ramakrishnan (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 2009), Leymah Roberta Gbowee (Nobel Peace Prize, 2011) and Arthur Mcdonald (Nobel Prize in Physics, 2015).
The overall framework of the Nobel Solutions Summit will discuss and debate whether the internet is both democratic and dangerous; the importance of scientific and medical research and with increasing global polarisation are we heading towards more internal violence and a major global event? The format of the debate will involve a great deal of audience participation and suggest solutions to some of the major challenges facing the world and India today.
Announcing the Summit, NDTV’s Co-Chairperson, Prannoy Roy, said, “NDTV is deeply honoured and grateful that so many Nobel Laureates have agreed to come together for our “Solutions” summit. This is a big day for NDTV and we hope a big day for our viewers too. We have so much to learn from these great minds.”
Speaking about the show Managing Director Here and Now 365 Manish Tiwari said: “Indian TV channels such as NDTV are taking a step in the right direction to inform, educate and create an atmosphere of healthy discussions about the future with eminent panellists. In today’s world facing social and political problems along with developing countries such as India fighting for net neutrality, there is a need to come up with an innovative solution. Open forum discussions such as Nobel Solutions by NDTV and TCS create an environment for the public to think and influence policy makers.”
