Thoughts: Objectives, Roles and Procedures
In order to protect freedom of thought and freedom of expression, it is necessary to make efforts to expand them. The historic legacy of fearless and in-depth brainstorming sessions of Vicharvedh, for the progress of society, dates back to 1993. Vicharvedh has resumed to carry on this legacy to inculcate the thought-provoking analytical way of thinking,
Vicharvedh is ideologically and emotionally committed to the guiding principles and fundamental rights in the Indian Constitution. Vicharvedh is specifically committed to promoting scientific approach, inclusive development, equality, fraternity, emancipation of women, annihilation of caste and tolerance of apposition.
Vicharvedh movement reaches people through various media. It is a medium that expresses people's thoughts. Many ‘activities’ are organized by Vicharvedh to encourage citizens to think and express themselves analytically:
- Annual Conferences
- ‘Vichar Veche’ are the recording of short speeches that stimulate analytical thought
- ‘Charcha Gat’ - organizing discussions on "Vichar Veche" speeches
- conducting the lecture series from village to village
- Promoting ideological writing through essay writing
- Social Awareness and Personality Development - Special Training for Youth
There is an attempt to have as much variety as possible in the subjects. Care is taken so that the subjects are related to the issues of life. We strive to ensure that speakers come from all ideologies, religions, castes, genders, age groups and regions.
The operations of Vicharvedh are 'democratic' and 'transparent'.
Vicharvedh seeks to make participation possible in a decentralized manner by making maximum use of information and broadcasting technology.
Consideration is given to the need for political parties and the need for active politics. Activists of political parties should participate in the discussion, express their views, listen and discuss. But the role of ideology is to ensure that leaders and spokespersons of political parties do not participate in the decision-making process of ideology so that ideology does not become an arena of political power struggle.
The purpose of the think tank is to make it useful for researchers and activists working in the social, political and economic spheres.
Consideration is given to the need for political parties and the need for active politics. Although activists of political parties should participate in the discussions and express their views, they are not given leadership roles.
Vicharvedh takes the lead in building friendly relations with all like-minded organizations and welcomes their cooperation.
