The IMC Ladies Wing recently hosted globally revered spiritual and humanitarian leader Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at its flagship event IMPACT 2023. The immensely successful endeavour brought together people diverse in experience and background to watch an insightful discussion between Mr. Anant Goenka – Executive Director, The Indian Express Group and Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. With characteristic lightness and humour, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar effortlessly spanned practical and spiritual perspectives on a wide range of outer and inner-worldly subjects from geopolitical conflicts to meditations for overcoming the perception of duality over the course of the enlightening evening. Mr. Goenka was an excellent facilitator and kept the audience entertained with his outstanding repartee, especially in the rapid fire round.
