The Millennial Story

For our 2018 edition, Aambrotsave is committed to reaching out to India’s millennials.

We applaud their commitment to social and cultural issues and salute their courage to explore and conserve their world.

This edition’s mission is well echoed in words of Nicholas Kristof :

“Above all, we want Millennials to realize that they can have an impact on the world and that, in the course of empowering others, they can also empower themselves”
