Karti Chidambaram wants to set a Tamil Nadu to new tune, one singing of youth and hope. With this view in mind, the son of former finance minister P Chidambaram is organizing G67, a seminar for the generation born after 1967, on March 6 in Chennai.
The genesis of the idea behind G67 is also unique. “On March 6, 1967, the DMK under Anna Durai came to power. It’s 50 years since the Dravidian parties came to office,” says Chidambaram.
Chidambaram came up with this idea two years ago. This year the event will attract a host of eminent speakers who will share their views on various topics. Ramkumar Singaram, CEO, Catalyst Public Relations, will speak about industry in Tamil Nadu while Senior Deputy Editor of Tamil Hindu will speak on media. M Murugesh, editor, Dinamalar (Pattam) will share his views on society while director-actor Karu Palaniappan will speak on cinema.
Chidambaram will speak on the current political scenario in the state and the way forward.“The state needs a new political narrative. A path focused on growth and administrative efficiency, not on emotional issues,” says Chidambaram.
