The First Extension Lecture organized by the JDVSC Social Wing
The first extension lecture for the academic year 2018-19 was organized by the social wing of JDV Students’ Council on 19th July, 2019. The topic of the lecture was “Post-Election Prospects for the Poor in India.” The Lecture started at 6.15 pm. The resource person was Mrs. Kiran Moghe, an economist and National Leader of All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA). She critically analysed the process and the result of the national election. From her analysis, she underscored that the prospect for the poor is bleak. She also spoke about the recent finance budget and helped the audience to understand supplying statistical data about the impact of money power and the influence of corporates on society. Hence, she challenged the audience to break barriers and come together to build alternatives along with the people of goodwill and the poor.
The session was moderated by Dr. V. Sebastian. He effectively facilitated the session by stimulating questions from the floor, which were answered effectively by the speaker.
The event was ably managed by Deacon Binay Nayak. He welcomed the gathering as well the moderator and the resource person. Dr. Sebastian felicitated the speaker offering her a sapling. Introducing the gravity of the topic and the expertise of the resource person on the topic he invited her to speak.
