New Delhi: Shah Rukh Khan, this lazy Sunday went down his memory lane to think…
Nikita Saxena, New Delhi: What is the key to organise an event that will be a super hit among college students,
undoubtedly? The answer seems to lie with the students of Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), who recently organised the annual event Youth Conference 2016. The two-day long star studded affair was attended by celebrities including actors Soha Ali Khan and Manish Paul, filmmakers Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Olympians Abhinav Bindra and Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and author Anuja Chauhan.The event started with the session of Rathore had the students cheering, when he spoke on the Kashmir issue, saying, “We will hit hard, we will hit slow, we will hit when we want. We will keep hitting them, that’s for sure. We have a massive bench strength when we talk about the Indian army and we have every Indian youth.”mix of fun and gyaan as she advised the students, “Talk to more people. Don’t gravitate towards sameness. College years are a great time to gravitate towards otherness. The more different people you talk to, the more you learn. It is a very liberating experience.”
Talking about her own college days, Chauhan added, “College ke baad economics chhoda kyuki eco tha yaar. I took it for the same reason that all other students do, people say ‘eco lelo, your options will be open’. Then soon I realised it wasn’t my cup of tea.”
Mehra, who was up next, recounted an anecdote from his college days. He said, “During second year, we were given our Maths exam question paper. I remember looking at it and thinking ki maine Greek toh nahi padha tha kyuki ye Maths toh ho hi nahi sakta. Soon, word started spreading in other colleges that SRCC students were not going to crack the paper.”
The students of SRCC also gave a loud cheer when journalist Ronojoy Banerjee, moderater of Kishore Biyani’s session, revealed that he would hang out very frequently at SRCC with his friends.
