â€œYLC is not a competition, it is a movement.â€ -Ms. Meenakshi Sahni, Principal, Modern School, Vasant Vihar 0 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 â€˜Aam Aadmiâ€™. This yearâ€™s edition thematically corresponded to â€˜Leadership with an Eye for Governanceâ€™. 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 workshopsâ€”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.
