As I sit here trying to give you guys some sense of what happened at the Design Yatra, in Goa, I’m thinking of the speakers who are the world’s best designers in different disciplines standing there- tall in their integrity, shining in their talent & most of all daring- to listen to their inner voice. We listened sometimes laughing, sometimes applauding & sometimes with a lump in our throat as they took us through their life and work with disarming simplicity, wit & honesty.
The venue was packed to the strength of some 1700 odd design professionals & students.
Guess what! One whole side of the entryway to the auditorium, they printed all the delegates names.
Look for me :) 2nd last line. 2nd last name.
Davis Kester was clearly a most animated & enthusiastic presenter.

After 5 days of packed schedules & having fun- I’m bleary eyed & dying to get one whole nights sleep. So, I’m only sharing the venue of the conference here- all the goodies- i.e., the speakers and what they said, the seriously neat personlised kit each of us got, Goan architecture etc will follow in the next posts. So watch this space!
