JNU to organise week long ‘Swami Vivekananda Youth Festival’ every year – education
Jawaharlal Nehru University will host a week-long “Swami Vivekananda Youth Festival” each year, officials said Wednesday.
Various programs such as sports, cultural events, technical festivals, exhibitions, academic events, including lecture cycles, seminars, lectures, debates and discussions, will be held for students and prizes will be awarded to the winners.
“This would immortalize the messages, thoughts and visions of this great son of India and spread the teachings of Swami ji among the JNU community, especially among the students,” said JNU Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar.
The JNU Executive Council also passed a resolution to constitute a committee to develop academic research programs on Swami Vivekananda.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled a life-size statue of Swami Vivekananda installed at JNU via video conference earlier this month.
