Is our unique storytelling a boon or a bane?Writing, just like any other art form, is subjective.Are the writers supposed to always adhere to the set pattern and deadlines, not having much scope for expression, and hum along a tried and tested methodology; or should they be striving to become ‘creators’, where the inspiration is just the subconscious and the world around?

The Chief Guest for the conference was Mr. Mani Ratnam, the ace director who crossed over from the South and gave Hindi cinema blockbusters like Roja, Bombay, and Dil Se! The first day of the conference shed light on the various dilemmas and roadblocks that a writer (film/TV/OTT) faces in their journey.
