India Today back with Mind Rocks Youth Summit

India Today Group is back with its annual event for young minds, Mind Rocks Youth Summit. This forum brings together young minds to participate in an open two-way dialogue with their icons. The event will be held in Delhi on September 7.

Now in its third year, the event is a day jam packed with fresh ideas and live music. Theme for 2012 is ‘Be The Best You’. The theme was chosen in light of the unsettling nature of the fluid political and social environment of today. The idea behind the theme is to build confidence and to inspire and energise ‘the you’ by choosing icons that have succeeded against the odds.

The first year of the summit saw the likes of Nandan Nilekani, Pranav Mistry and Sourav Ganguly share their experiences with the delegates. In 2011, the event saw the youngsters engage in dialogue with people such as industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla, Ranbir Kapoor, politician Kalikesh Deo and Yuvraj Singh.

This year, the event has doubled the numbers of speakers from last year’s 12 to 26. The line-up of speakers includes:
Young Guns of Politics: Akhilesh Yadav, Chief Minister, Uttar Pradesh; Sandeep Dixit, Member of Lok Sabha and Indian National Congress
Pathbreakers: Arvind Kejriwal, social activist; Ali Zafar, crossover star
Sporting Heroes & Olympians: Mary Kom, boxer; Gagan Narang, shooter; Sushil Kumar, wrestler; Yogeshwar Dutt, wrestler; Vijay Kumar, shooter; and cricketers Kapil Dev, Unmukt Chand
Bollywood Stars: Ajay Devgn, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Huma Quereshi, Ayushman Khurrana, Emraan Hashmi, Imtiaz Ali, Anu Malik
Best of Entertainment & Design: Ekta Kapoor, Joint MD, Balaji Telefilms; Vir Das, stand-up comedian; Masaba Gupta, fashion designer
Corporate Mavericks: Vineet Nayar, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer , HCL Technologies; Sanjeev Bikhchandani, Founder and Executive Vice Chairman, Naukri.com

In order to engage the young minds, the conference is not strictly structured but has a fluid program with discussions and interludes. The event will open with a live performance by the winners of the Mind Rocks 2012—Be A Rockstar contest, The Philosophy of Life, and conclude with a live concert by the iconic band Indian Ocean.
