What’s My ID : Young India’s Take On Identity #Contest

Posted on October 26, 2012 in Contest

India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.” ~ Mark Twain

India is a nation of colours; where each colour has a range of different shades. We have colours of traditions, of corruption, of culture, of guilt, of patriotism, of identities, of poverty, of floods, of passion, of grandeur, of trouble, of intelligence, of flavours and  more. The palette of Indian shades is too large to be covered here. So we will take up just one colour from the palette and discuss its various shades. The colour of identities.

Youth Ki Awaaz, has always been asking questions. Questions that stir our brains and we need to dive into our own souls to find out the answers. We don’t want the “right” answers, but we want the honest thoughts. And the question for you to ask yourself this time is “What’s My ID

India is a country with diverse cultures, traditions, people and identities. “What’s My ID” is an initiative to understand what young India thinks of this diversity, and the varied identities that India has. Are these identities a part of your daily life, or do you find them out of your zone of understanding? We are doing an exploration where you can tell us your thoughts and for that we give you two ways:

  • Participate and win: Win a Nokia Lumia by telling us what you feel. The contest is a way for us to understand your thoughts and know from you what you think about the amalgamation of all identities. How do we, India’s young…the voice of the country, the leaders of tomorrow…see this diversity? Do we celebrate it, or do we fear it? Participate here.
  • Take a survey: Cut out what others think, we want to know what you think about India and its identities. We have sorted and handpicked 13 quick questions for you to tell us why or why not would you make your choices the way you do. The survey is a way to know how accepting/disapproving you are of the varied identities in India. Take survey here.

So get ready India. It’s time for us to introspect, discuss, think, listen and write. It’s time to tell your thoughts. It’s time to ask “What’s My ID“. For further details visit us here.
