Acharya Balakrishna, CEO of Patanjali, addressed the students and said that he was content seeing the bhavishya and buddhi (the future and the intellect) of the nation. He also said that we need to retain our youth within the country by providing them job opportunities, while also mentioning how his company employed over 30,000 direct employees. Upasana Taku, mountaineer and marathon runner, punctuated the spaces between guest speakers and enthralled the audience with nostalgic anecdotes about her adventures on the peaks.

There was also motivational speaker, Praveen Wadalkar, who, by giving an account of his own life story, told the audience how everyone has the potential to be great.

Ankur Jain, founder of B-9 drinks traced his journey in the beer making market, and said how important it is to find something you are passionate about, in order that you may do justice to it.

The conclave inched towards an end with a discussion on the book ’26/11 Stories of Strength’ published by The Indian Express and issues surrounding terrorism in the present context.

Kavita Iyer, the editor of the book who was also moderating the session began it by telling the audience what the book was about. Prof. Simrit Kaur, principal of the college (who was also a panelist) emphasized on the importance of the episodes discussed in the book for the present generation since they are “stories of strength”. She was also quoted as saying, “We, at SRCC believe in giving back to the society” and by way of discussion she believed that change would gradually come.

The conclave concluded with Papa CJ’s performance, that paved way to a yet another successful year of the conclave.
