This is an age where words dissolve concrete, where sentences open doors, essays churn oceans, where speeches give life, where the youth and democracy meet on concrete steps, in street corners, in busy office rooms and bustling college cafeterias. This an age where hands are raised and answers demanded, and it is with an intention of fueling this age that the Tehelka Foundation initiated “Democracy Dialogues”.
The Democracy Dialogues initiative seeks to provide a forum for youth to explore and engage with some of the challenges facing the Indian democratic experience.
We will focus our work in spaces where young people have felt compelled to respond with violent action. Through our web pages and events, we wish to present to an opportunity to have your voice heard, to be a part of change and paint your stroke in the big picture. From corrupt government halls to terrorism to LGBT rights, the discussion is yours to wield and the words are yours use.
