GUWAHATI, Jan 16: The Assam State AIDS Control Society (ASACS) observed tiol Youth Day at the conference hall of State Institute of Health & Family Welfare (SIHFW) in Khapara recently, a press release said. Welcoming the participants in the event, ASACS Joint Director (IEC) Bonti Saikia, while stressing on this year’s theme, ‘Indian youth for development, skill and harmony,’ said, “Youth is the asset of society and thus we can’t ignore the fact that they are the most vulnerable lot. And thus it is our prime duty to ensure that they follow the right path. Swami Vivekanda is the real youth icon of the tion and thus by observing this day which coincides with Swamiji’s birthday, we actually try to remind the youths that they should not take any wrong path and instead follow the ideals of Swamiji.”

Noted writer Jayanta Madhab Bora, in his speech said, “If we want to empower others, we must first empower ourselves. Today’s youth is losing patience. They have no time to listen to others. Thus, there is a huge communication gap and this has resulted in indiscipline amongst the youth. There is frustration amongst the youth today and that is why they become prone to high risk behaviours.”

Professor and HoD of the Department of Assamese, SB Deorah College Janendra Kalita, in his speech said, “Swami Vivekanda’s contribution for the uplift of the society especially the youth is unparalleled. Swamiji always inspired the youth to serve the tion. He always believed that service to mankind is service to God.”

SB Deorah College, professor Dr Niranjan Kalita dwelt on the ideals of Swami Vivekanda. He said, “Swami’s views and teachings would always help in building up a strong and a healthy society.”
