At every spot of each city, throng of masses swarmed in during events held to commemorate ‘National Youth Day 2015, with an aim to put the ideal picture of youthfulness before the generation of the youth of today. The programs catered more than 60,000 youths at 7 states vis-à-vis Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Gujrat, Maharashtra and Bihar in almost 22 cities (Nagpur, Chakan, , Pathardi&Latur in Maharashtra, Sirsa & Ambala, in Haryana, Aligarh, Gorakhpur &Meerut in Uttar Pradesh, Vishnu Garden, Karkardooma, Dwaraka, Sec 15, Vijay Vihar&Nehru Place in New Delhi, Bangalore in Karnataka, Anoopgarh& Jaipur in Rajasthan, Pithoragarh in Uttarakhand, Muktsar in Punjab, Ahemdabad in Gujrat.
It was not an easy task, to break the just developed, misconstrued and fashionable definition of youthfulness, framed by the youth of today. Therefore, taking every related aspect in concern, we laid down a theme ‘Today’s youth: Caged or free? The underlying thought was to initiate a ‘thoughtfulness’ or ‘thought of contemplation’ or motivate the youth to revisit their definitions of youth.
Bodh, taking this innovative and pioneering concept, further arranged events of multifarious nature like Street Plays, Mass Walks against the issue, Lectures in communities & slums, workshops at schools and colleges, workshops with teachers and school management, mass awareness sensitization at spiritual congregations, street quiz, exhibition displays, movie screenings, dedicated events at communities in association with local youth organizations.
Witnessing its success into account in the initial two days amongst masses, Bodh had extended it for a week span from 11 Jan 2015 to 18 Jan 2015. Dignitaries and renowned personalities of the respective areas also took part and gave motivating speeches in order to jerk and shirk the youth. Among the beneficiaries, innumerable came forward and registered for rendering services in the upcoming programs of the organization. It was really a youth for youth event, since almost 3000 volunteers across 22 centers consecrated their services and energy in conceptualizing, delivering ideations, execution and in managing the programs under the leadership of the representatives of Bodh, the Drug Abuse Eradication Program of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan which is a socio spiritual organization, formed by His Holiness Ashutosh Maharaj Ji.
