SPEAKERS TESTIMONIALS 

”The city of Jaipur is charming in every way and I have had the pleasure of being posted there once in my career. It has wonderful people and great culture on display everywhere; a tourist destination of some distinction on the world tourism maps. Jaipur Dialogues introduced in 2016 brings to this lovely city an institutional opportunity to discuss and be educated on comprehensive security matters to include geopolitics, international strategic affairs, internal security, science and technology, ideology and culture. This was an area thus far the apparent reserve of Delhi and to some extent Mumbai and Pune. Putting together some panels of great distinction Mr Sanjay Dixit, the moving force behind the annual event, has created a footprint of intellectual excellence in Jaipur. I spoke at the first ever Jaipur Dialogues and received a great response and that’s why I intend to ensure I get right back there at the second outing; in fact I eagerly look forward to it. ”

Lt Gen Ata Hasnain, Lt Gen (Retd) Indian Army

”Jaipur Dialogues provides a dynamic and comprehensive forum for addressing the prime issues challenging India and the world today, from culture and spirituality, to economics, politics and national defense. Most notably it does so from the perspective of Indic traditions that are seldom given their proper voice in discussions today, and without which India’s role in the world cannot be properly understood or appreciated.

As such Jaipur Dialogues provides a vibrant alternative to limited forums that reduce the issues of India to the parameters of western civilization, its different cultural background and worldview. Jaipur Dialogues can help you rethink and restore India’s role in supporting the positive development of knowledge, communication and consciousness in the world. It provides an examination in terms of India’s dharmic traditions and their unique views of the cosmos, humanity, science and culture.

I was happy to participate in the dialogues 2016 and look forward to the 2017 event that looks to take the discussion to a deeper level and a broader audience.”

David Frawley, Pandit Vamadeva Shastri

”Jaipur Dialogues consists of engaging talks and interchanges with eminent thinkers, writers, journalists and public figures on the India stage today. It draws the audience into its informative presentations and debates, reaching out into the society as a whole with new perspectives and innovative insights. I found the first Jaipur Dialogues to be engaging and fascinating in how so many themes and issues were woven together for a broad view of all the challenges and opportunities facing India today.

It is wonderful to see such unique and different discussions about India that address key issues outside the boundaries of the usual academic and media outlets and their circumscribed points of view. Notably it is good to see India’s culture and yogic values afforded their proper place and regard.”
