"UTOPIA - NOT JUST A DREAM" was the theme of this year's RS conference. The stimulating discussion in the conference centred round the concept of ‘Utopia’ which means a perfect world. The assembled groups brainstormed about what Utopia meant to each individual. Various concepts of a 'perfect world' — a world with 'perfect equality', 'lack of bias, prejudice and discrimination' and 'availability of education for each individual' — were put forward. The group members also discussed whether or not "Utopia" is a dream, the response to which was a mixed one. The groups also deliberated upon ways to achieve 'utopia' — most of the delegates agreed to 'education' being the most potent tool. Almost all delegates agreed upon the fact that they have the power to bring about a positive change to lead this world towards utopia.
The delegates also participated enthusiastically in fun-filled activities including tattoo making, Zumba dancing and playing the treasure hunt. There were also workshops in French, Spanish, German, Sanskrit and Kannada.
The conference was filled with mirth, enjoyment, laughter, entertainment, and learning for all the delegates. It was an event which the delegates were sure to cherish and remember for more reasons than one.
