Starting with introducing Ravi... "Ravi Kishore, a 26yr old, is a B.Tech (Aerospace Engg) graduate from IIT-Bombay. He's currently the National Vice-President & acting Spokesperson of Bharat Punarnirman Dal. Born and brought up in Hyderabad into a lower-middle class family, Ravi Kishore presently focuses primarily on the education sector at all levels.

Ltd, an IIT-JEE coaching institute. Chess, cricket, aviation, music, movies, cartoons & comics - especially Calvin & Hobbes constitute the lighter side of his personality."
The first question I asked Ravi was about the name of the political party "Bharat Punarnirman Dal." And how do they see it.
I though that was a long and good explanation and it was a bold statement which said that the country has not evolved strategically from the beginning.
Following this I wanted to know how BPD is actually different from other political parties out there.
Response HearDownload I really appreciate the points mentioned by Ravi regarding the fresh mind, new ideas, and accessibility to political system.
I further asked Ravi about their vision for India as a whole, which includes every individual from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Nagaland to Gujarat. He tried to present his vision according to what's happening around in India.
While talking about his Vision, Ravi brought up this energy issue. Energy is definitely going to be the driving force of political turmoil in near future. As an example, now even the suburbs of Mumbai are witnessing severe power cuts. During our talks, the issue of nuclear energy also came up, and we talked about the recent pact between India and US regarding that.
Response HearDownload Harsha Rajasimha from Blacksburg, VA wanted to know how the party structure of BPD is organized? While asking about the party structure, I also asked Ravi about their website? I did talk to him about the strength of party.
Response HearDownload Harsha asked how are the current recruiting process focused?
Response HearDownload A question came up with a tag of IIT related thing in the party.
Then we talked about how they plan to succeed in a country where half of the people are illiterate? Response HearDownload The Ravi mentioned about the recent elections they contested and their plans for immediate future.
Three from Kanpur and two from Lucknow in an assembly of more than 400? I wanted more clarification on that. Response HearDownload So I wanted to know more about their screening process. Response HearDownload
Plan for big political field UP? How you plan in just two remaining months? Response HearDownload
I wanted some clarification on their poor coverage in media. Response HearDownload I absolutely loved Ravi's response on this question about his inspiration. Response HearDownload I asked how to vote from different place. He instead asked for more awareness Response HearDownload (The links will be updated in next few hours))
