Abhyas, the Internship Cell Of Hindu College organised the Hindu Youth Summit’s conference on February 7, 2014 in the Delhi University conference hall as the final event of the three day summit which also comprised a marathon the day before.

With some of the most powerful and inspirational speakers from all fields, the conference saw a huge participation from colleges all over Delhi.

The guests at the event were, Times Now’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, retired major General GD Bakshi, spiritual leader Salim Phulekar, journalist turned social activist Alok Dixit and Olympic shooter Rajyawardhan Singh.

The summit started with Arnab Goswami’s speech on ‘Who has created the present day India?’ in which he talked about his own story of finding his voice as a journalist, the real journalism and he addressed the crowd as the generation which will bring the change in the country. His speech was followed by General Bakshi, who gave the young participants an insight to the Indian army, including the wars and the current situation of the same. The intense atmosphere was lightened by the next speaker, Salim Phulekar. He focused his discussion on the inner empowerment of the mind and body. “Empowerment is focus and relaxation at the same time.” He said continuing to talk about how one can balance the inner peace and outer dynamism.

The conference then moved forward to the issue of acid attacks and censorship of internet, by Alok Dixit. He talked about his Stop Acid Attacks and Spot of Shame campaigns where they actively work to make people aware about the acid attack survivors. “The society prepares the crime, the criminal commits it.” he said, while interacting with the participants.

The last speaker of the event, Rajyavardhan Singh, shared his journey of being a successful sportsperson from an army officer. While taking the questions from the audience, he advised the students to just believe in their dreams and have a purpose in their lives.

“I think this summit made me realise different aspects of everything that the speakers talked about,” said Navroz, a Miranda House student.

A first year student of English in Miranda House, Himanshi can be best described as someone who loves to read, write and sing. She worships Pink Floyd and Kurt Cobain. When not writing quirky lyrics and articles, she can be found singing on the top of her lungs. She wants to spend her life exploring her fixation with country music and Chevy trucks while travelling and writing about it, listening to any Beatles song in the background.
