Good luck to our friends at Editorial Intelligence, who are heading off to India today to launch Names not Numbers in Mumbai.

Yesterday I went along to a showing of Deepak Verma’s Mumbai Charlie in Somerset House. A young businessman, uncomfortably thrust into a senior role in the family business, has a car crash en route to a make-or-break business meeting. Dazed and confused, he is rescued by a cult of Charlie Chaplin worshippers who help him find his true (anti-corporate) self. “Greed has poisoned men’s souls” reads a cult member from Chaplin’s closing speech in The Great Dictator. The theme for Names not Numbers Mumbai is ‘the individual’, and they have a brilliant line up of local and international speakers.
