Event Shout Out : ‘India Is’ Global Video Challenge 2011

When two of the biggest Ministries in India join hands to promote something, the one thing you can be sure of is that it will be GRAND!


The ‘India Is’ Global Video Challenge 2011 is at par with any international video challenge, going by the scale of promotion, the brand ambassadors, the jury and its online presence!

Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Member of Parliament, Former Under-Secretary General – United Nations and the veteran Golden Globe Nominee filmmaker, Mr. Shekhar Kapur are the Brand Ambassadors for the Video Challenge. It is indeed quite an interesting combination – an ex UN-member and a filmmaker, both highly regarded for their intellectual contribution to India. To quote the ‘India Is’ team: “Mr. Kapur’s cinematic experience is invaluable and Dr.Tharoor is an eloquent commentator on India’s soft power”.

This is your chance to participate. All you need to do is get acquainted with the rules and get started.

Another interesting video is that of Dr. Tharoor and his opinion on what exactly India Is. We particularly like the way he’s explained each category.
