SUMMIT! Meet India’s Youth Icons!
The third annual India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2012 was packed with some seriously inspirational stuff.
What do you get when you put together India’s biggest youth icons and an audience of 2,000 enthusiastic college students? The third annual India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit, that’s what! Starring big names from sports, politics, entertainment and business, the Summit was all about inspiration, motivation, and having a lot of fun (case in point: a cool performance by rock band, Indian Ocean). Group Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Aroon Purie started things off with a speech against corruption and the need for young blood to take a stand. Akhilesh Yadav, Arvind Kejriwal and Sandeep Dikshit discussed politics, while Imtiaz Ali was interrogated by die-hard fans and, Ali Zafar, Anu Malik and Ayushmann Khurrana sang for everyone. Towards the end, Priyanka Chopra captivated the audience with her stories of success and failure (she sang too!). Did we hear you say that sounds like a lot of fun? Yep, it so was!
