"There's a tremendous gap between public opinion and public policy." - Noam Chomsky

Do you think that public policies in our country leave much to be desired? Do you feel that there is a gap in policy formulation and execution? Do you believe that you have the mettle to bridge this gap and bring about the change? Vidheyak, the public policy competition at Vista 2016, gives you a unique opportunity to come and put forth your views on what India needs to do to put its public policy in place.

In line with Vista 2016's theme ""Look East"", bring your thoughts to the table and compete with top minds in the country to show your ability to bring about ""The Change"".
