“If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do things worth writing. ” –Benjamin Franklin
It is said that a pen is mightier than a sword. The most powerful weapon are and shall always be words. Words that have caused revolution, brought down empires, started and ended wars, given hope, broken hearts and made history.
By this initiative of Techkriti’14 and Social Scribblers we wish to infuse into the minds of the college students a fire to write about responsible issues and use the internet and social media to bring a youth awakening. Write and share your opinions. Be the change!
