The objective of this association is to instil the habit of reading in the younger generation across the nation and globe.

Read India Celebration 2021 is a unique opportunity for Schools (5th to 12th grade) & Colleges (Degree & PG) to engage students in a transformative non-academic reading and leadership experience.

RIC 2021 is a book reading and leadership initiative for students, with the aim to create Independent Thinkers by encouraging students across the country to read non-academic books and thus create emerging leaders from India and around the world.

The focus of RIC 2021 International is to Read, Think & Act. Read aims at 3 R’s - Reading Books, Reading Self, and Reading Situations. Think focuses on 3 things which can be done to get better. And Act focuses on doing 3 things daily for conscious & continuous improvement. The objective of this association is to instil the habit of reading in the younger generation across the nation and globe.

The goal of RIC 2021 is to get 10 Lakh Registrations from students across the country, making it an annual reality knowledge festival which students look up to from all corners of India. The future-plan for RIC is to make it the world's largest knowledge festival where students from different geographies, cultures, age groups & diverse backgrounds share their knowledge, share views and solutions to issues that matter to them.
