Read India Competition – Is not a competition but a grand stage to celebrate emerging readers, vidyavan and leaders from india and across the world. It’s an annual Readership and Leadership carnival for school ( standard 5th - 12th). A platform to celebrate knowledge and propagators of gyan based culture. It’s a stage to reinforce the value and importance of gyan as the only means to prosperity & peaceful coexistence. A stage to remind students that our ignorance, ignorant people & societies are the greatest threat to our own wellness, humanity and the eco system we live in.  

RIC is a platform to empower Shikshit (literate) to become Vidyavan. A platform where every participant is a winner in their own way. Students can read the nominated book, suggested books, books of their own choice, read their own self, their own experiences, role models, “Mother Nature” or events in history of their own choice to express their views & feelings on the nominated topic / topic of their own choice. 

*Students of all nationalities from around the world can participate. Note: International submissions only in English language. 

Read India 2020:-

Purpose of Read India Competition:

*Read India Competition is to make students read one new book every year other than academic books to enable Readership & Leadership!

Why Read India Competition:

"Only knowledge based cultures manifest into knowledge based economies which pave the way to prosperity and harmony". For any country to be progressive, it needs quality leaders in quantity. This initiative is to sow / enhance seeds of "Gyan and Leadership thru Readership" at high school and college levels. From a known we can get to the unknown, never the other way round. Similarly, for every society the journey to growth & success begins from knowing where they are? Our goal = Quality in Quantity; Our objective: From a Shikshit society, we need to transition to a Vidyavan society. 

Read books & 'Self" to experience how reading initiates us into knowledge & all-round growth. Just to remind (according to most global researches), all leaders in the world are readers and same is the case with successful people. The connection between vidya, readership & success is well established, world over. Reading books broadens & deepens knowledge base and Reading Self leads to Knowing Self (i.e. knowing our strengths, priorities, areas of improvements, path of pursuance, happiness, pockets of distress and much more) and Knowing Self is the basis to Leading Self & Winning in Life!

*Remember, ignorance is bliss followed by destruction. Independent thinking & gyan are not an option for an individual but the only path to growth and harmony!?
