 National Youth Day- India 🇮🇳 

Youth Day in India is celebrated on 12 January on the birthday of Swami Vivekananda ji.

In 1984, the Government of India declared and decided to observe the Birthday of Swami Vivekananda (12 January, according to the English calendar) as 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.’

Swami Vivekananda's Birthday, according to Indian Almanac (Vishuddha Siddhanta Almanac) is on Pausha Krishna Saptami tithi, which falls on different English Calendar dates every year. This is observed in various centres of Ramakrishna Math and Mission in a traditional Hindu manner which includes mangalarati, special worship, homa (fire-ritual), meditation, devotional songs, religious discourses, sandhyarati (versper service in the evenings), and so on.

Few mottos that can remind you of your values:

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; dream of it; think of it; live on that idea. Let the brain, the body, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.”

“That which is hateful to you, do not do to others.”

“Think before you speak.”

“Justice delayed is justice denied.”

"If the problem can be solved with money, it's not that important."

The National Youth Day is observed all over India at schools and colleges with processions, speeches, recitations, music, youth conventions, seminars, Yogasana presentation, competitions in essay-writing, recitations, speeches, music, sports, and other programs on 12 January every year .

Youth have a role to renew and refresh the current status of our society including leadership, innovations, skills etc. ... On the other hand, youths have also to maintain the culture of our culture, all good values in the societies, development projects, etc.  

Youth is the backbone of every Nation.

Wish you & your family a happy National Youth Day .
