Among 364 applicants, who have been selected for the national-level ‘Change-makers confluence’, to be held between June 26 and 30 at Ishan Institute of Management and Technology, Greater Noida, is student from the city A. Kundhan Karunakar.

Karunakar, student of Miracle School of Engineering, is one among the 1,730 participants who have been shortlisted for the four-day youth conference. He is also instrumental in drawing scores of students together to work for the underprivileged groups through Oneness Organisation, an association of students. In order to encourage the young participants to become torchbearers of the nation, the confluence includes sessions like ‘young parliament’ and ‘social innovator programme’.

“It came as a pleasant surprise to me as I did not expect that I will be selected among hundreds of other participants. I am looking forward to the big day as it is a rare opportunity to meet people from different walks of life and share a common platform to express our views in panel discussions that cover topics like politics, education, health and other fronts,” he said.
