We couldn't have asked for a better start to the first day of Innovate, an event we hope will be India's leading technology. Culture youth festival. The excellent response from the student community ensured that the meetings were full from the start. Here is a summary of what happened:
John Bayne and Scott Forrester of Corning: Why we have to be ready to fail
Innovate kicked off with sessions including John Bayne of Corning and Shereen Bhan of CNBC- TV1
Bayne reflected on the company's past and described the company's journey, discussing how Corning has manufactured the light bulb through Edison Glass, the company's problems in trying to sell tempered glass to automakers . to sell, and even when he lost over time the company through a failed bet tens of millions of dollars All this was a message based: be prepared to fail, but more importantly, be prepared to le from your mistakes to Errors didn't hold back Bayne or Corning, and Gorilla Glass can now be found in the hands of billions.
“This event is intended to inform, entertain and inspire you. The digital age is defined by the inspiration of people like you.

Later in the day we saw some fun demos of Corning Gorilla Glass in action. Scott Forester – Xiaomi's Anuj Sharma and Bhan first tried to pierce a pane of gorilla glass with a pencil. And when we say "tried" we mean that they leaned on the pencil so hard that the tip broke. The glass was intact. Sharma and Bhan also had the chance to try Corning's slappers!
Have you ever wanted to tap your cell phone hard to see if the glass breaks? Well, @corninggorilla did, and then they were all scientific about it. Introducing Corning & # 39; s Slappers! @ T2Innovate pic.twitter.com/ZToKtn39RG

The forester's meeting was of particular interest to scientific nerds. For example, did you know that glass is stronger than steel under pressure?

PUBG Mobile with Dynamo_Gaming and Rawknee
By far the most interesting and exciting meeting at Innovate was PUBG session with streamers and Rawknee Dynamo_Gaming. Together they house well over seven million players and have over 600 million views.
The session, moderated by Shashwat Singh and Ragini Varma, the dynamic duo handling 1Up-Gaming showed a heart-to-heart relationship with the streamers themselves and more importantly is an extended session in which members of the audience could take part in a PUBG mobile match to defeat Dynamo and his Ragtag team of audience members – winners of an earlier challenge. Dynamo survived the first session unscathed, but then ate too many balls from one member of the audience, an achievement that earned him a well-deserved price from Fitbits Alok Shankar.
Shankar and journalist Nikhil Chawla concluded the keynote sessions in a QnA moderated by CNBC-TV18's Megha Vishwanath.

As an ex-journalist, George discussed how blogging helped him get in touch with his audience on a more personal level, which in his opinion helped make his work more accessible and accessible. George also shared some rules and regulations for social media blogging about clothing, watches, luxury cars and travel, with a refreshing honesty that invited many questions from the audience.
Chef Shantanu: You are what you eat
Are you (really) what you eat? Chef Shantanu took the audience on a journey through human development to share his perspective on how our diet should be based on our biology. We are no longer hunters – not since Homo Erectus entered Earth. Our canines are not built to tear through meat, and there is plenty of scientific evidence that a vegetarian diet is less likely to make someone on the way to diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
