Today is National Youth Day

National Youth Day is celebrated in India on 12 January on the birthday of Swami Vivekanand. In 1984, the Government of India declared and decided to observe the birthday of Swami Vivekanand  as a National Youth Day every year from 1985 onwards. To quote from the Government of India\’s communication, \’it was felt that the philosophy of Swamiji and the ideals for which he lived and worked could be a great source of inspiration for the Indian Youth.\’This year National Youth Festival is being organized in Udaipur.(image contribution-Dr.Pradeep Jain)\"\"
