The purpose of boudhik, or intellectual activities in shakha, is to gain knowledge about Hindu Dharma and society, learn from each others' experiences, develop a sense of pride in our heritage, and inspire ourselves to contribute to society. This is done effectively through group discussions, presentations, workshops, and talks. Some suggested topics are listed below.
