women’s security. “If all the students gathered here today take a solemn pledge to drive the transformation of India, there is no doubt that they will achieve this goal by 2047,” she said.

Students echoed these sentiments with their dreams and hopes for India’s future.

I dream of seeing these issues completely removed from India by 2047.”
