The journey of 'Read India Celebration' started in 2015 with 1 lakh registrations from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Today, RIC 2021 received 3.3 lakh registrations from across the country. The initiative also received registrations from countries like Oman, Qatar, the UAE, and the USA. The vision of RIC is to make India a knowledge-based culture. For 2022, we want to take this initiative to all corners of India, and we want more and more participants to speak in their regional languages. A nation that does not read, think, act independently, can never be progressive. I would like to see an India of readers, I would like to see an India of independent thinkers, I would like to see India of innovators and if more and more people start reading then that will be a game changer for the country.”, says Raghuram Ananthoj, Founder, Read India Celebrations.
