Ground Zero with Rajdeep Sardesai at Capital Numbers
You couldn’t possibly guess who stopped by our office last Saturday!
It was none one other than Mr Rajdeep Sardesai.
The visit was for his feature “Ground Zero” which will air tonight at 8:40 PM on India Today.
As many of you are well aware, Ground Zero is a report where Mr Sardesai documents and covers events right from “ground zero”, as the name suggests; a huge part of which is talking to all stakeholders associated with an event and taking their opinions to the masses.
The edition of Ground Zero which we participated in features the West Bengal State Elections. Mr Sardesai along with the crew of Ground Zero made concerted efforts to reach most sections of the society and to gather their opinion on the things that they are keeping in mind while going out to vote.
Capital Numbers was exclusively approached by the India Today group to be one of the representatives of the young IT sector in Bengal. They wanted to talk to us about whether we have experienced the proverbial “poriborton” (change) in the last five years and about the pros and cons of being an organization based out of Bengal.
As an organization that takes Bengal across borders with our extensive activities in India and overseas, we were delighted to be given a chance to weigh in our opinions. Being very tuned to the conditions in Bengal, our entire management team answered all questions with phenomenal poise. They spoke about how they see various parameters for growth, changing, and how the IT sector works in Kolkata, they also spoke about some major occupational hurdles that we face being a company that operates with overseas clients – like lack of direct international flights to our airport etc.
Apart from the feature, we were pleased to have Mr Sardesai at our office for a good 30-40 minutes. We were excited to have the chance to give him a tour of our office and talk to him about what we do. It was quite an eventful Saturday for the bunch of us!
Don’t forget to tune in to India Today at 08:40 PM tonight to watch the full report. We are pretty sure you have your pointers to add as well. Write to us after the telecast about what you did and did not agree with us on this front. Look forward to hearing from you.
