in Publishing & Appearances

Quicksand's co-founder, Ayush Chauhan, was invited by NewsX, a national television broadcast channel, to speak on a panel on what the youth of the country can expect from Government of India's financial budget for 2015. Representing social entrepreneurs, Ayush spoke about how social change and development was still the biggest area of impact for India in the future and the largest mandate for steering it was still with the government. Reflecting on the current government's call to action to provide "maximum governance, minimum government", Ayush emphasized the need to create an enabling environment for the youth to engage with issues of governance and help drive innovation in this sector.
