India Today Tamil edition initiates event focusing on Tamil Nadu

India Today Tamil edition has initiated yet another event -- India Today Council on News and Society (ICONS) -- focusing on Tamil Nadu as the top investment destination. The first series of this quarterly event will take place on February 18 in Chennai. Its exclusive telecast can be seen on Raj TV on February 27 at 10.00pm.

ICONS is an initiative for leading minds to discuss, debate and determine a roadmap on a host of important issues. It will allow Tamil Nadu to exploit its true potential and play its rightful role at a national level. Explaining the purpose of the event, Ashish Bagga, ED & Publishing Director, India Today, said, "Tamil Nadu enjoys relatively higher literacy and its social infrastructure is comparable with the best. It is geographically well placed and it has a work culture that fosters growth. However, there is a gap between the state's potential and progress on the ground. To address this, the ICONS panel will meet every quarter and initiate a discussion on a critical issue relevant to Tamil Nadu."

The ICONS' panel will comprise Venu Srinivasan - Chairman and Managing Director, TVS Motors, S Theodore Bhaskaran - film critic & columnist, Kamal Hasan - actor and film maker, A R Venkatachalapathy - Professor, MIDS and Radhika Sarathkumar, Chairperson, Radaan Media Works.
