Read India Celebration – Is not a competition but a grand stage to celebrate emerging leaders where every participant is a winner in their own way. It’s an annual Readership and Leadership carnival for high school & college students. RIC is a one of its kind high school & college reality leadership events anywhere in the world. Students can read the nominated book, suggested books, books of their own choice, read their own self, role models, “Mother Nature” and events in history of their choice to express their views & feelings on the selected topic.

Read India 2017:- Edition II - Oct, 2017.

Purpose of Read India Celebration:

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

Why Read India Celebration:
For any country to become progressive, it needs quality leaders in quantity which touch all aspects of the society. This initiative is to sow / enhance seeds of "Leadership thru Readership" at high school & college level. Personally, the journey to growth & success begins from knowing where we are. We must know where we are, to get to where we want to! Read books & 'Self" to experience how reading initiates us into knowledge & all-round growth. Just to remind (according to ALL global researches), all leaders in the world are readers and the same is the case with successful people. The connection between readership, leadership & success is well established, world over. From a known we can get to the unknown, never the other way round. Reading books broadens & deepens knowledge base ( both technical & non-technical) and Reading Self leads to Knowing Self (i.e. knowing our strengths, areas of improvements, passion, happiness, what our heart wants to pursue, priorities etc.) and Knowing Self is the basis to Leading Self & Winning in Life!!
