In their address the theme of the year “YUVAAH – Utsah Naye Bharat Ka” was instigated. Swami Vivekananda’s message, “Whatever you think, that you will be. If you think yourselves weak, weak you will be; if you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.” was asked to be felt by the youth of the community.
They also said that Swami Vivekananda believed in youth power and the youth must show their power and strength in bringing about awareness on protecting people and teaching them how to confront themselves from Covid-19 pandemic. Their actions must cross the religious, social and political barriers. Unity and innovation must be the aim of today’s youth and they must have in them a sense to Awake, Arise and stop not till their goal is reached. Totally 2 members participated. People in and around the community got benefitted through the program.
