Gujarat experts and Editorial staff to discuss various views on the importance
of the Gujarat election. As a second step to participation that has been
largely through text and social, Firstpost is using video to engage its readers
with its editorial views.

closer to our audience and in real time. And we wanted to take our digital
editorials to the next level, on video. This format was perfect. We have a lot
to learn, but it’s an exciting new way to make content come alive for our
audience.”
