About the Event

THE F-WORD INDIA NEEDS NOW MORE THAN EVER


The Wire Dialogues is back and this time we bring the carnival of free-wheeling expressions to Bengaluru!!


The Constitution promises the people Justice, Liberty & Equality but also the promotion of FRATERNITY among them all.


In this edition of The Wire Dialogues we explore, celebrate and defend the idea of Fraternity - a principle, a feeling, a state of mind, an outlook – which assures both the dignity of the individual and the unity of India, with noted actor and political activist Prakash Raj.


The five-time National Award winner will be in conversation with The Wire’s Editor Seema Chishti on why India needs to understand and embrace the idea of Fraternity, a constitutional ideal, now more than ever.


As with all the past editions of The Wire Dialogues you can expect the conversation to be no-holds barred where the guests speak boldly and express their views fearlessly.


The conversation will be followed by a round of Q&A with Prakash Raj as well as the founding editors of The Wire, Siddharth Varadarajan and MK Venu


The evening will be kicked off by noted artist and singer Shabnam Virmani, who will enthrall you with her rendition of compositions by Kabir.
