NEW DELHI: In a fresh spin on the government's 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' celebrations,' the anti-ragging non-profit, Society Against Violence in Education (SAVE), has launched an inter collage open mic competition for undergraduate and postgraduate students in India.

The students will be required to speak on the topic "Ragging Se Azadi", freedom from ragging. The first-place winner will receive Rs 10,000, second-place winner Rs 6,000, and third-place winner Rs 4,000. There is also a special viewer choice award for the most liked video, as well as e-certificates for all participants.

To register, a candidate must record a three-minute uncut video of his or her speech on the assigned topic. Depending on the candidate, the video can be in either Hindi or English. The applicant will then be required to post the video in SAVE's Facebook group: mail.no2ragging, and once approved by the administration, the link to the video can be entered into the online registration form. Applicants who do not have Facebook accounts must upload the video to Google Drive and then share the link in the registration form.

The judges will be judging the video latest by September 15, 11:59 pm.

SAVE has been working and campaigning against ragging and violence in educational institutions for 15 years. The organisation has been holding awareness programmes, seminars, interactive sessions, competitive events, lectures, and short presentations on campuses, primarily with hostels, to eliminate violence and abuse of fresher.
