Adhyay: Reading to Understand Political Manifestos

Date: 28th April 2019
Venue: Lamaakan, Hyderabad

On 28th April, we hosted 'Adhyay', our socratic seminar in the city of Hyderabad. The Adhyay brought together 6 young thinkers to reflect and discuss the manifestos of national political parties, in the light of the 2019 elections. The discussion explored the proposed the substantive proposals contained in the manifestos, along with questions regarding the relevance and enforceability of political manifestos, and mechanisms to ensure due accountability from the elected leaders.

Adhyay, socratic seminars have been conceptualised with the aim of engaging our alumni and young learners in critical reading and dialogue, to foster reasoning and comprehension.
