About US

 United Students Banner

United Students is a Delhi based society set up for the development of new leadership for an emerging India. This will take young Indians, students particularly from Universities, who can visualise a new ethos of governance as our country prepares itself to be the fore-runner among nations in this century. We wish to federate students all across the city and country in a cohesive unit to take up issues of governance.        

How do we work? You are being invited to join as members of US. We will form groups of these members, who will work on specific activities or geographical areas. Leaders amongst you will head these groups. This will take a group of committed youth who are prepared to involve themselves in nation building in a practical manner, not by coffee room discussions alone but by tangible actions and visible improvements. 

A core group has already come into place. But we need more such dynamic students who have what it takes to deliver on the promise of making this country move in the direction we want.

What next? Are you involved enough in matters concerning your city and country to want to join us at our next meeting? We meet regularly and you are welcome to join in anytime.
