On Saturday, 11th August 2012, the students of Sri Ram College Of Commerce organised ‘The Youth Conference’ at Sir Shankar Lal concert hall, North Campus. The theme of the conference was ‘Here is Where our Story Begins’ and well known personalities like Suhel Seth- managing partner of counselage India, Alvinder Dhindsa- CEO of Zomato, Bimal Jalan- former governor of RBI,  Ajay Chaturvedi- founder and chairman of HarVa, Utsav Mitra- ex president of student council of SRCC and Gaurav Kapoor- VJ, Actor and sports presenter; all spoke on the theme interpreting it in their own way. All the speeches made were convincing and well received. Mr.Suhel Seth advised the students to be ‘brutally honest since a lie is time consuming’. His unconventional way of focusing on conventional values like honesty, respectfulness and patriotism won the loudest round of applause. Gaurav talked about his 3 A’s- ambition, audacity and action and appealed the audience to take risk- ‘udan bharne ke liye chhalang lagana zaruri hai’. Bimal Jalan urged students to pursue a career because of interest and not for money. The organising members, with Pratik handa as the convener and Bikash Agarwal as the conference secretery did quite a good job in making the event a successful one. A good number of delegates turned up and were given a certificate of participation as well. The event which continued for about 6 to 7 hours was sponsored by Nestle, Nescafe, Amtek group, PETA India, Red FM 93.5, Hourglass Project etc. Some lines like ‘ravel in the arts- smell flowers, go for a long walk and smile, smile and smile even more!’, ‘being patriotic is not important, being a nationalist is’, ‘don’t be afraid of failure, yes it sucks, but don’t be afraid of it’, ‘there is nothing more derogatory and it’s a bloody farce  that we worship all these goddesses when we abuse our women’, ‘in future, farmers, not bankers, will drive Ferraris’- made the event an unforgettable one for students.
