The India Story was launched ceremonially, amidst a prolific creative confluence at Basubati in Kolkata. It marked the culmination of a long-cherished desire to synchronise the creative energies from across the country through Kolkata. The launch of The India Story in 2015 paved the way for the biggest celebration of a variety of creative talent in Kolkata. TIS has since evolved and grown to introduce finer elements through its journey.
The first edition of TIS was curated by Swarup Dutta and Nil of devrnil.
