The keynote address was delivered by Prof. M. D. Nalapat, Editorial Director of The Sunday Guardian who described India as a democratic society with a colonial style of administration. He spoke of the need to empower civil society using technology to create a horizontal society that flattens outmoded hierarchical structures. Touching on human rights, he spoke about the need for universalization and an inclusive approach that encompasses a broad range of human behaviour and activities. He stressed the danger of extremism and the importance of contextualizing communication and adopting perceptions that unite people globally.
