निराकरण की खोज में "युगांतर"!
"Yugaantar" signifies the transition from one era to the other. A situation that is desirable, sustainable and progressive. We all would wish to undertake such a journey and achieve this transition to something that is better than the current state we are in. Not only individuals, but nations across the world are trying to enter into such a progressive state of affairs. Who is supposed to play a role in this transition? Who will lead this change? Is it possible to attain such a model era of governance and prosperity in India? What is the role that youth of the country will play in such a mode of transformation? These and some other pertinent questions and curiosities gave birth to the idea of "Yugaantar" which culminated into a National Youth Conference on "Youth for Socio-Political Changes in India" at the M.S.University of Baroda. I was privileged to be a part of this conference right from the very beginning when the seed of thought for the event was sown. There was one other reason for this conference being held and that was the 150th birth anniversary of Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III, the epitome of progress and development of Baroda. The team of Yugaantar decided to dedicate the event to this great visionary ruler of the city and aimed to discuss and deliberate upon the ideals that he had laid down for a good rule and a good state.
|The symbol of Yugaantar|
ming and systematic planning. There were many people who silently contributed to this process...I think they were the unsung heroes of Yugaantar... they who were not visible on the stage but they who strived hard and worked relentlessly for the success of the event...their contribution to the event and its magnitude is immense. As also the participants who presented their unique ideas on the themes in the conference. I think the best part of the conference was a sense of shared success that the team realized at the end of the event. For me ...Yugaantar has not ended ... it has given birth to new ideas, thoughts and innovations ... has called for action and positive attitude ...towards the nation ... Yugaantar has actually just begun and we hope to take this spirit to each and every one in the country!
