We must not forget that we are a pluralistic society, which is why it becomes imperative on our part, to include every segment, irrespective of any bias, in our vision and framework. It would send a very positive message to the society if the hidden talents dwelling in far flung places are brought to the fore, and felicitated on prestigious forums like Iconic Awards. While the privileged ones living in metro cities have no dearth of opportunities, the talented ones living in small towns are the ones in need of robust platforms for helping them showcase their acumen before a larger audience.”
