YOUNG LEADER

The Young Leaders Conclave or, as it is denominated by its popularized abbreviation, the YLC,
is a platform for future leaders to undertake egalitarian tasks and learn more about the chal-
lenges faced by the ‘Aam Aadmi’. This year’s edition thematically corresponded to ‘Leadership
with an Eye for Governance’. Spread over five days, the YLC featured interesting sessions with
Mr. Prannoy Roy, President, NDTV; Mr. Anshul Tewari, Founder, Youthkiawaaz.com; Mr. Fa-
had Moti Khan, CEO, Bitgivings; and other personalities who work for the welfare of society
through journalism, politics and social work. The participants were offered a medley of skill
workshops—Puppetry, Film-making, Theatre and Comic Strip Making. They also went on field
trips to the Yamuna, the Safdarjung Hospital and the Kusumpur Pahadi slum to get a peek into
the harsh realities of the outside world. Also, they visited the CBI Headquarters to get a closer
look at the top sleuths of the nation in action. Participants and organizers were delighted to
have partaken in this immense learning experience that helped pave the way for young lead-
ers and architects of the future to learn while still readying to take their place in the world.
