The rally, which kicked off from from MIT college campus and carried on till Nal Stop, saw the participation of over 450 students. The silent march was led by Karan Nayak, Yogita Gavali, Piyush Mishra, Jyoti Tekale and Nikhil Khedekar. Participants held up placards with slogans that spoke about the increasing violence and crimes against women and voiced the need for special police units to address the issue of women's safety. The posters carried by the participants of the rally demanded a helpline to be made available for women to call during emergency situations. The demand for stringent action to be taken against criminals to prevent others from committing such heinous acts was declared by the students as the need of the hour. The protest march also saw the participation of R. S. Chitnis, the principal of MITSOM, teachers of MIT college of Arts, Science and Commerce and MITSOG. The people who participated in the rally believe that mindsets are as responsible for such acts and it isn't solely the responsibility of the authorities to prevent such crimes, but it should be a collective effort on the part of citizens to stay vigilant.
The Youth Wing of the Sadhu Vaswani Mission, BridgeBuilders, held a Christmas themed event on December 23 at the Kutiya, Sadhu Vaswani Mission. The session "Peace, Love, Joy" was organised by in-house singers of the youth wing, who sang carols with a difference. The Christmas carols were not only sung in English, but also took the theme of togetherness to another level and sang songs in Sindhi and Hindi. The event was attended by over 125 members with majority of them belonging to the age group 13-30. Such sessions are held twice a month by the Bridgebuilders in the late evenings to bring the youth together. This session was themed as a Christmas special with Dada Vaswani gracing the event. "The most important of the Ten Commandments is not the tenth, but the eleventh, which is: 'love God with all your mind and heart and soul and love thy neighbour as thyself'. Each one is our neighbour, not merely every human being, but every creature that breathes the breath of life is our neighbour," said Dada Vaswani as he addressed the youth at the event.
