Bangalore Political Action Committee (B.PAC) and the Takshashila Institution’s first set of classes for B.CLIP: B.PAC Civic Leadership Incubator Programme were held on 6th and 7th December 2013. The introductory session, held on 6th December had Nitin Pai introduce the first batch of students to the curriculum and the class structure. Nitin emphasised on the importance of the course before delving into its primary objectives, structure, rigour and what the students should take back from it. This session touched on civic awareness and emphasised on the importance of the rule of law in a civil society and democracy. This session also looked about how the most important facet of city governance was the acceptance and adherence to the rule of law along with a nuanced understanding of the problems faced by a city.
