In a country with several millionaire households, it’s shocking that 32% of our population still lives below the poverty line. The state of affairs is so glum that our political system is fraught with corruption, crime and fraud. The only silver lining in this dull cloud is that the janta is finally waking up to the need for change. Gone are the days when the ‘chalta hai’ attitude seemed impervious. Today’s society demands answers, explanations and mostly importantly, action.
So, if you have the desire to trigger this revolution of transformation, to become an active citizen involved in the political machinery & to become the catalyst for effective governance, then Youth Sabha is apt for you. What’s more! You also get to showcase your audio-visual creativity in making a video reflecting your social concern.
The event is divided into two rounds. Participant teams can comprise of 2 or 3 members.
Round I : Make a 2.5-3 minutes video accompanied with a written description (not more than 100 words) about thing(s) you wish to change about India and your proposed solution(s) for the same. The video must be shot by the participants, either partially or for the entire duration of the video. Fully animated or textual videos are prohibited. The winning teams proceed to Round II.
Round II: The finalists will be invited to present their proposal as a bill on pre-stated issues in a mock parliament setting. All contestants will have to debate the various aspects of the bill (feasibility, effectiveness, fall-outs etc.) to decide the fate of the bill, whether it would pass in the ‘house’ or not.
Note: Rules are subject to change by event-coordinators.
