Talk Journalism- A Media Fest to Uncover Trends & Tools of Press in Jaipur!

Media has always played a huge role in the development of any country. It is high time that media gets constructive about creating value for itself and its counterparts. The format and delivery of news has always changed as a result of technological change and innovation, but the basic human behaviour of wanting to uncover, tell, and share stories of common interest always remains. Keeping the same in mind an initiative has been taken in the form of, Talk Journalism, which is now coming up with its fourth edition in Pink City after a successful run of three editions (2012, 2015, and 2016)  you can listen to some of the finest voices in Indian journalism and also meet them socially.
