Youthisthan Foundation writing competition


A National Level Writing Competition
on the occasion of

National Youth Day 

Swami Vivekanand (1863-1902) was one of the leading lights of the 19th century. A towering figure who made the world stand and take notice of the power and importance of Indian spirituality and philosophy, Swamiji put equal emphasis on the youth of the nation. He strongly believed that India can only regain its lost glory if the youth of the country can uplift its spirits and work tirelessly to make India stand equally among the comity of nations. His birthday, 12th January is therefore celebrated every year as National Youth Day. To commemorate the occasion and awaken the youth of today, the Youthisthan Foundation is organizing a National level writing competition, "The Trailblazers 2023".
