What are the new models for the world? No politics, no gossip… only positive creativity centred vision and plans for the future. I was thinking why not celebrate life in such trying and depressing times and share hopes with people. Amidst all this, let’s not forget the most precious gift which we all have – Life. It’s the Life which will defeat the fatal virus. So, celebrating Life is the first step”. In the same breath, he adds, “How the life is going to be in a post #Coronaworld? How we can find new meanings, new dreams in a #NewWorld? So, Pallavi and I will be talking to the thought leaders and share their vision with the world”.
