 At the Valedictory function of ICMC 2016, the keynote address was delivered by Mr. Anil Gupta. He spoke about how in today’s age, our identity is questioned and in these times we seem to be looking for confirmation. He opined that we need to ask question about “kind of market” we have created and what are the forces that shape identities of nations, cultures.

He also mentioned that we need to remember ancient Charvak and Madhyamarg , a Strong tradition of debate and an art of broadening one’s range of perceptions, that existed 2000 years ago, as the culture of questioning broadens the range of argument and look at different traditions-language, design, metaphors (not just as a short hand to catch hold of consumer).

He emphasized that communication creates empathy which in turn creates innovation. He also discussed the role of language in shaping thought. His address also stressed on the role of cooperation and competition in attracting the consumer, as markets are evolving through the power of cooperation and one cannot put together people, planet and profit without such cooperation as brought about by Shared markets, culture, metaphors.
