About RIC

Read India Celebration (International) is not a competition but a stage to celebrate knowledge and independent thinking as essence of life. One of its kind annual Readership and Leadership initiative for students (from Class 3 to Postgraduates) + Citizens (from RIC2022) to indulge in a transformative practical reading, problem solving and leadership experience. A platform to share knowledge, discuss ideas & solutions to issues that matter to us. A journey to spread awareness about the value and importance of Gyan & Independent Thinking as a path to progress, prosperity & peaceful coexistence.

A grand stage to remind all of us that our own ignorance, ignorant people & ignorant societies are the greatest threat to our wellness and the ecosystem we live in. It is to empower Shikshit (literate) to become Vidyavan. Well and truly an experience where every participant is a winner in their own way!

 

RIC 2021 – Read, Think, Act – Is to empower the Read (3R’s), Think (Independent), Act (Intelligent) factor…

    1. Read focuses on 3 R’s
      • Reading Books
      • Reading Self
      • Reading Situations
    2. Think focuses on 3 things that can be done to make progress
    3. Act emphasizes doing those 3 things daily

Students can participate in Read India Celebration 2021 (International) in 3 simple steps:

    1. Register
    2. Read – Read a book or research on a topic (refer to the proposed list of 25 themes/topics below; students are free to choose any book/topic of their choice)
    3. Submit 2 files (1 Document & 1 Video from Upload Files section in Students Dashboard)

a.  Doc file: A4 size, 2 pages (PDF or MS Word doc)

    • Page 1: Summarize the message & learnings from the book/present views on the research topic /  theme (Minimum 3 Pros & Cons + conclusion) in your own words (*Note: It’s either book or presenting views on a topic but not both)

Key Milestones & Timelines for RIC 2021 (Updated on 09Oct2021):

    1. Student Registrations – Closed
    2. Student Submissions – Closed
    3. Round #1 Evaluations – Completed
    4. Leadership Coaching Sessions For Round#2 Qualifiers – Completed
    5. Round #2 Screening – Nov 2021 – Completed
    6. Grand Finale – 2nd or 3rd week of Dec 2021 – Completed

Vision: Transition to Vidyavan (knowledge-based) society from a Shikshit (literate) society.

Read India Celebration is an experience:

Only knowledge-based & independent thinking cultures can manifest into knowledge-based economies which pave the way to prosperity and harmony. This initiative is to sow/enhance seeds of “Gyan and Leadership through Readership (i.e., reading books, self & situations)”. Practical reading is the key to success. “No Reading, No Success” is one of the key messages of RIC.

Read books & ‘Self” to experience how practical reading & problem-solving initiates us into knowledge & independent thinking. All successful people and leaders in the world are readers. The connection between vidya, readership & success is well established, world over. Reading books broadens & deepens the 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, ignorance and much more) and Knowing Self is the basis to Leading Self > Living Life!

*Remember, ignorance is bliss followed by distress. Independent thinking & gyan (/knowledge) are not an option for an individual but the only path to growth, prosperity, and harmony!

Nominated book for the year 2021 – Leading Self & Beyond (Download eBook)

Proposed Topic for the year 2021 –” Use, Addiction and Abuse of Technology” – Can technology potentially empower (effective use) or hamper youth (addiction / abuse) of nations / world?

Why this topic for 2021?

Children & youth worldwide are increasingly spending more time on technology, gadgets, the internet, gaming, social media, TV, etc. with the advent of the Corona pandemic. According to research, children and youth all over the world are exposed to enormous risks & dangers with increased exposure to technology, and the only viable solution is increased awareness amongst students and youth who can draw the line between use and abuse, utility and futility of technology.
