My Canvas Talk is gradually turning into a platform for various achievers to share their stories. From Tollywood celebrities to national singers to activists — it is gaining popularity among people from different walks of life. Not just that, this talk show also takes its social responsibilities quite seriously. The founders plant one tree for every 1,000 views on the online streaming platform the show streams on and have already planted 100 trees from the views they’ve garnered over time.
Sharing his thoughts on winning the award, Rahul said, “The Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry is one of the oldest chambers for commerce organizations in India and also one of the oldest in Asia. I believe, having the opportunity to stand on their stage is itself an honor. I feel truly humbled that the panel thought our organization is worthy of receiving the prestigious award. This is definitely one of the biggest awards in entrepreneurship from Bengal. I would love to convey my gratitude to my dear friend and the co-founder of our organization, Amit Kumar Mahishya Das. Without his hard work, it would have been impossible for the organization to reach this height.”
Amit, on his part, said, "We created My Canvas Talk to inspire people. When we saw the number of people who are currently going through depression, we wanted to do something in this field. We believe storytelling has the power to inspire. It is a platform that is focused on crafting stories. Receiving the winning award from BCC&I boosted not only our confidence, but the morale of the entire team. Now we are more focused to take Bengal's glory to the international level with our initiative.”
