We the People is a digital repository of narratives of Indians with all there faults, aspirations, dreams, and victories. What started as a mere extension of the more popular Humans of Bombay, has today amassed a huge following and resonation amongst Indians, either new to or veterans of digital consumption. Today, We the People travels to all nook and corners of the country to capture beautiful stories of the common person as they live, breathe and race against time as part fast-paced, continuously growing population.
Capturing these stories, with all their nuances and delicacies, Vrinda Vaid, an independent poetess, and writer at ‘We the People’, visited the DEF headquarters as the 8th speaker for DEFdialogues on the 1st of December 2018.
It was indeed a wonderful way to culminate this year.
Vrinda has grown up to Urdu poetry verses being recited by her father, akin to first languages being spoken at our homes.
Vrinda brought the same literary finesse and articulation to DEFdialogues as she spoke about poetry, the art of writing and storytelling and the need to create a community online tied by words, in an increasingly maligned world.
She drove the conversation by incorporating audience interaction and assimilating how stories hold our cure, by sharing relatable narratives.
