She also happens to be only female member of Asian Women's Boxing Commission from India. Dr. Santosh Dahiya told the young audience that youth have always made the impossible things possible. The contribution of youth for the Independence is well known to all. Youth are sign of energy and revolution. History tells us that youth have achieved whatsoever they desire. But the modern youth is moving ahead without an aim, which is harmful not only for them but for the nation. She also said youth are required to prove themselves in all fields so that the country can march on the progress and prosperity. The second speaker was Ms. Ihitashri Shandilya, a social entrepreneur who is the founder of MITHILAsmita. MITHILAsmita is a folk art preservation and promotion organization working for the ancient Indian art, Mithila Paintings. She is working towards preserving a heritage art form of India, Mithila Paintings, and providing livelihood to several households. She spoke about the happiness she gets in doing her work and the passion which is driving her. In addition, she spoke about the importance of realising your passion and pursuing it.

Another speaker was 22 year-old best selling author, screenwriter and motivational speaker Mr. Sumit Shahi. He wrote his debut novel at the age of 17 and has published three popular novels till date. He has written over 1000 episodes for six hugely successful shows (Sadda Haq, Million Dollar Girl, Veera, Boys, Twist Waala Love and Secret Diaries) on Indian Television. In 2015, he was recognised by Hindustan Times in ‘Top 30 under 30’ emerging talents in the country. He is not only one of the youngest best selling authors in the country but also one of the youngest scriptwriters in the Indian Television industry.

The event was held in the presence of honourable dean of the college, P.J Philip. The other highlights of the event was flutist Madusara Liyanage and Kathak dancer Divya.
