About Sangam Talks
‘Sangam Talks’ is an Indic platform and YouTube channel that invites speakers to deliver lectures on Indian history, Indian knowledge systems, values, culture (music, arts, traditions), and even current issues related to the ‘Indian civilization’.
Our speakers span across academicians, scholars, researchers, journalists, practitioners of the arts, social activists, and spiritual leaders.
We record these lectures, carry out high quality editing including syncing voice-video-PPT slides, and finally upload these on your YouTube channel for larger and global viewership. Currently we are organising three lectures online via Zoom. We do not live stream our lectures on any social platform.
You could see us as the TED of Indic ideas. You may see the channel: https://www.youtube.com/sangamtalks
Why might you consider working with us?
If you’re on a break from the corporate world OR are looking for a sabbatical for 1-2 years from the corporate world OR perhaps even actively looking for a full-time position in the Indic space, then SangamTalks is a great place for you to be.
‘Documentation of knowledge’ for posterity is one the most important activities required in challenging current ‘leftist narratives’ and reclaiming the space for spreading and mainstreaming Dharmic narratives.
Towards this objective, SangamTalks is a project of strategic importance with a very long-term impact. Having a combined following of nearly 450,000 followers on our channels we have built a very strong base and now is the time for massive scaling up of our work and build content in all major Indian languages.
Towards this we are looking to build transcription & translation teams, social media teams and processes, build better editorial content, be better at monetizing our YouTube videos.
