  • It is a very good message that youths are openly invited to join freethought movement. Freethinking is the essential part and probably foundation of rationalistic thinking and living. The Indian traditional authoritarian orationism would be replaced to question answer sessions to actuate the cause proposed.

    I would love to witness this interesting event if we wouldn’t have our function prescheduled for March 14,2010. I am pasting the Invitation for our traditional Annual Function for the Children below:
