NATIONAL YOUTH DAY
“Man is born to conquer nature and not to follow it” this quote by philosopher Swami Vivekananda still reverberates in the ears of every individual who wishes to overcome any difficulty with their fearless attitude.
In 1985, the Government of India declared Swami Vivekananda’s birthday – January 12 as National Youth Day in honour of the great philosopher and monk. Since 1985, this day is celebrated as National Youth Day all over India.
He saw hope for the future in every child and believed that with “muscles of iron” and “nerves of steel” they could bring about social change. Swami himself personified the eternal energy of the youth and a restless quest for truth. Today, almost 50 percent of India’s population is under the age of 25. The future of the country rides on their shoulders.
On the occasion of National Youth Day, GISK organised a talk show with the Alumni of our school according to the relevant and contemporary scenario in the country.
As we believe that Youth is the building block of the country that takes it to the pathway of success and the greatest asset of the country comes from the youth that leaves a significant impact on how our future is going to be like. The ideas and enthusiasm oil the machinery of the country with a plethora of innovative ideas. That is why it is essential to acknowledge their importance and commendable contribution of youth to the country. The youth fills zeal and energy and boosts the country in various ways. The country’s limit can be best speculated by breaking down the number of population in youth of nation. It demonstrates how young a nation is! Learners had a good inspirational interaction with the guests by asking various questions related to youth and success achieved in their life and how the GISK has played an important role to build their future.
