Two college-time friends, who came up with the idea to create a stage for the achievers to share
their stories with the rest of the world. Eventually, they created the first-ever stage-based talk
show, which was born in Kolkata. The co-founders of the organization Rahul Basak and Amit
Das wanted to create this talk show very premium for the speakers and open and free for the
audiences via various streaming platforms. Within a very short period, they had more than 30
speakers from different walks of life and they reached seven states in the middle of the
pandemic via their virtual initiative. Not only this, they have organized one of the big entire
women’s editions of the “City of Joy”, Kolkata. Apart from curating the talks “My Canvas Talk” is
also getting popularity for their works in the field of social works and their fight to save mother
nature. This talk show is the only talk show in the world to come up with an idea to plant one
tree for every one thousand views received from the youtube channel. And they have already
planted one hundred trees from the views received.
