Eminent personalities were invited to speak about their lives and motivate the students through their success stories.

The conference began with the inaugural youth lecture by Mr. Feroze Varun Gandhi, who spoke about his achievements in the political sphere. He urged the students to find a higher purpose in life and work for the country. The event was also graced by Mr.Tapas Dasmohapatra, who delivered a lecture on the “Connect and Correct” relationship. He encouraged the students to connect with the people around them. Miss Archana Sardana, a Base Jumper, interacted with the audience by recounting her experiences. Her enthralling stories instilled courage in the hearts of students , inspiring them to overcome their fears and follow their passion.

Another speaker, Miss Shalini Vig Wadhwa, who made it big in the business world on her own footing, talked about her struggles in life and how she fought all obstacles to reach a successful position. On Day 1, in between the speaker sessions, there was an entertaining performance by Agyat, a Delhi band, that mesmerised the audience with their songs. The final speaker of the day, Mr. Varun Pruthi, advocated that the students work towards earning repute and success in their lives, taking inspiration from the personal tales narrated by the speakers before him.

This was followed by a speech by Mr.Padamjeet Sehrawat, who made us realise that there is greater depth to an individual’s personality, than what meets the eye. Tapping this very potential is what demarcates the successful from the mediocre. Mr. Sehrawat, is not only a cricketer, but also a singer and composer. The audience got to witness his talent when he sang for them.

Later, an act by famous magician Mr.Sumit Kharbanda spread the magic all around the auditorium. The illusions and mind games in the act kept the students engaged. Miss Shilpi Jain, a criminal advocate, then spoke about her hardships in the gruelling field of law and how she overcame them by impressing her superiors by proving her capabilities. A band performance by Retro Rock Project set an up-beat mood for the event. Day 2 speaker session culminated with the much awaited interaction with Mr.Bhuvan Bam, a YouTube sensation (“BB  Ki Vines” ). His talk was light and full of wit. He impressed upon the audience the point of how luck goes hand in hand with hard work.

Equinox culminated on 15 March, leaving those who attended the event, inspired, motivated and enriched.

A debater, a scholar, a fashionista, she is more of an outdoors person who likes to run 6-8 km a day, just to clear her head. She is an ‘Army Brat’, but an unlikely one. Reading a book by lantern light in a tent by the banks of river Indus after a hard day’s trek in the mountains is her idea of bliss. She wants to be an investment banker but admits that writing lets her escape into a world of ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’.
