My distinguished guest on this, the 78th episode of our award-winning MVP – The Master’s Voice Podcast, is the soft-spoken knowledge-driven media captain and expert across the entire News spectrum in India, Avinash Pandey - Chief Executive Officer, ABP Network, and President of the NBDA (News Broadcasters And Digital Association), and the India Chapter of the IAA (International Advertising Association). Truly a thought-leader-statesman for the News space in India, Avinash has kept Purpose front and centre as he drives the modern-day network from a great, century-old legacy news leader parent for the greater good.
Avinash is a young veteran who has more than a quarter of a century of experience, and along with being the thought-leader he is, a wonderful thing about him is his desire to -- and advocacy of the need to -- empower the younger professionals in Indian Media & Entertainment so that the industry, the various sub-sectors and sectors and the Nation, all can grow together.

We begin our conversation with the wonderful, second edition of the Ideas of India Summit from ABP Network. The Ideas of India Summit 2023 edition begins just two days from today, ie on the 24th of March, and will see a constellation of around 60 speaks across two days till the 25th of March.
I describe this IP from ABP as one with EP – Emotional Purpose, because, as Avinash tells me, the entire summit will steer clear of ('inflammatory' – our word) political noise, and will remain true to ideas that are likely to help build India. Because, as Avinash tells me, “India has ach
