“Theme for the event: #DaretoRebel. Our country has always been known for its diversity, our ability to accept, our ability to co-exist. But lately, there has been unrest and the temperament of the country has shifted towards a more individualistic sentiment whether it be pertaining to food, religion or freedom of expression. Whenever this has happened, spirits have soared and the people have risen against injustice. Words will bleed and poetry will flow, for this time we are centering our session around . This is for everyone to display their solidarity with the forces of rebellion, rebellion for the good. The pen is mightier then the sword and words, ideas aren’t forgotten,” said cofounder of BPC Sourav Panda.
