What's working for us (for Indian animation)

- A good tradition in the audio visual field

- Excellence in Movie and Television production

- Art & Culture bias

- Management & Systems

- Quality BPO culture

- Asia/India connectivity to the consumer

- Learning curve (On the up)

- Ability to absorb technology quickly

What's standing against us (against Indian animation)

- Studios lack intense business culture and professional focus

Biren urged the students to be aspirational saying, "I have been lucky to have worked for 20 years in different fields that have paid me well, after which I came into the field of animation. For me the pressures are much lesser, but for you, your dreams should be fuelled by cash. While you are studying or working, while you are making a living, think of an idea which you will one day take to the market."

Biren identified home entertainment as a huge opportunity where India can develop ideas and creatives for the international market. He pointed out that entertainment as an Industry in India had not attracted FDI inflows in comparison to other industries."Why don't we show the world that we have enough ideas, enough talent to generate huge revenue." said a visibly charged Biren.
