18 Students from grades IX & X participated in the symposium. Sai Sreeram from our school was given a chance to ask a question. His question was pertaining to the reservations being given to the members of the Scheduled castes, Scheduled Tribes & backward classes. He wanted to know why the reservations were still being continued to those who were rich, educated & well placed in the society. Ms. Geeta Reddy from Congress, appreciated the child for his choice of question and elaborately explained the rise of castes, reasons for reservations & why they needed to be implemented even today. Other members on the dais, too gave their opinion on this subject.
Students from other schools also asked questions pertaining to democracy. The entire two and half session helped students to understand the broader concept of democracy.
