The Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF) organised an online essay contest for school students between classes X and XII in January 2018. The theme for the contest was ‘My Vision of India’. The prizes were announced in March and the prize distribution took place at the VIF on 15 May.

Shreya Yadav of Darbari Lal DAV Model School, Pitampura, stood first, followed by Nakul Thureja of DAV Public School, Shrestha Vihar, and Ritika Rath of Sanskriti School secured the second and third positions respectively. Suraj Kumar of N P Co-ed Sr Secondary School, Kidwai Nagar, and Anshita Garg of DAV Public School, Shrestha Vihar, won consolation prizes.

The students came to receive their prizes accompanied by their family members and teachers. After Dr. Arvind Gupta, Director, VIF, delivered an introductory speech followed by the prize distribution ceremony, the students were asked to speak on as to what they thought about the theme. The participants articulated in a spirited manner the main points they had in mind about the India of their dreams, touching upon issues such as women’s safety, equal access to education, corruption, health and other areas in which we still need to work diligently. Some of the parents and teachers too expressed their views, especially underscoring the need for inculcation of values.
