BJYM national president Tejasvi Surya said: “Swami Vivekananda was the foremost monk, thinker, philosopher, social reformer, and youth icon of modern India. BJYM believes that the youth of today should imbibe the learnings of Swami Vivekananda and follow his path of truth, sincerity, discipline and Nationalism. Through these competitions, we are hoping that the youth draw inspiration from Swami Vivekananda and work for the service of the nation.”
