Bringing the Truth Closer To You
Brains Trust India is a confederacy of great minds who tell a variety of stories of significance and interest in a series of videos we record and film. These ideas are taken to wider audiences, through multi-city tours with the speakers and digital marketing of this content. Brains Trust In is a program that believes in building bridges with knowledge. This initiative was inspired by President F D Roosevelt back in 1932 when he chose a cohort of intellectuals to reflect and comment on matters of importance sans bias and rhetoric. Taking this idea forward, we have brought together highly accomplished professionals of our time to produce a series of educational videos. This is a passionate venture to record issues and events of significance by those who saw them up close.

The Story of Our Land
India over the centuries has seen great poets saints and fakirs who created a rich body of work.
Their poetry and music travelled across Imphal to Mazar e Sharif, from Gilgit and Hunza to Kanya Kumari. Today, we continue to preserve this by unearthing, nurturing, and sharing the voices of undiscovered artists from across the Peninsula.
We aim to cover all the languages of the subcontinent through music. It is this geographical lens that led us to choose the name The Peninsula Studios.
