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!
