Inkpot India
Re-inking our cultural heritage

She is strong and sublime. She is graceful and glamorous. She is creative and collaborative. SHE IS INDIA. A country as diverse as India is symbolized by the pluralism of its rich cultural heritage. Art, Literature and Culture combined with creativity manifest themselves in almost all economic, social and other activities and play an important role in the development of any nation. They represent a set of shared attitudes, values, goals and practices. Our culture & heritage is a huge part of everything we do; all of the things that quite literally make us who we are. At Inkpot we make a continuous and concerted effort to preserve it.

Hear From Our Speakers

Dr. Shashi Tharoor
Author, Politician and Former International Civil Servant
Inkpot is a very positive development to showcase our culture, because that`s ultimately our country`s biggest asset in many ways. This showcasing of literature, music, art, theatre, design, magic, all of these things at Inkpot India Conclave is what privileges India at its best
Sanjoy K. Roy
Festival Director, Jaipur Literature Festival
Conferences like Inkpot are super important because they create platforms for all kinds of ideas and thoughts and without an idea you can’t evolve as a human or as a society. And the more we have more of such platforms, the better it is for writers, for all of the cultural aspirations we have for our country and for our society.
Shazia Ilmi
I think Inkpot Conclave is a great idea. What I like about Inkpot is that there is a variety of topics and choices of panelists and people speaking; it’s very heterogenous. It represents different shades of opinion and it touches upon very sensitive issues, contentious issues but in a sensible manner and this allow for public discourse to happen.
Dr. Blossom Kochhar
Founder of Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic
Inkpot is a wonderful festival. From everything that I have been hearing and seeing, it is something that’s making people aware about what’s really happening and how they could go back to their roots. And it’s not just about cosmetics or wellness but all fields and it’s really been an eye-opener for me. I really think it will help in the progress of India.
Jaya Jaitly
Politician and Founder of Dastkari Haat Samiti
If we can share our experiences at conclaves like this and inspire people to truly appreciate the world we work in and talk about, the more converts we have the better.
Shovana Narayan
National Award Winning Kathak Dancer
We need festivals like Inkpot so that people come together, thinkers come together and where there is discussion, it always ignites, sparks some interest and some other doors and windows are opened.
Sunita Kohli
Interior Designer and Architectural Restorer
I think festivals like Inkpot serve a very good purpose: they disseminate ideas and people have so many original ideas or they are reinforcing old ideas and that goes to a much wider audience. Today`s technologies` dissemination platforms are so vast that dissemination of ideas happen very quickly.
Raseel Gujral Ansal
Lifestyle Designer
Inkpot, in its endeavour, brings together people who appreciate art as well as provoke new thoughts, and takes us towards evolving and enriching our culture.
Sharif D Rangnekar
Author & Festival Director, Rainbow Li Fest
Through festivals such as Inkpot people are trying to express themselves freely.This itself carries forward because it leaves a memory in someone`s mind; people will go and share it. With the digital medium you can share so much of what is being done here at lit fests like these. The touch and feel of people, the spirit of people, the diverse lives that are coming together here at Inkpot are a reminder of what our country is.
Kapish Mehra
Managing Director, Rupa Publications India
Conclaves are very important and Inkpot is doing great by organizing something like this. It is due to such events that you begin to think, reflect and then also permeate that knowledge across people who have attended that conclave and thereby be participant to such knowledge. Unfortunately we have stopped thinking as much as we should be and conclaves like these give you the opportunity to do so.
