NEW DELHI: ?Youth for Digital India? will be the theme of the National Youth Festival commencing this week. The department of youth affairs of the youth affairs and sports ministry organises the festival every year on the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

Youth affairs and sports minister Vijay Goel said the Festival from 12 to 16 January at Rohtak in Haryana will also be addressed by the prime minister Narendra Modi via video conferencing during the opening ceremony. Home Minister Rajnath Singh will be the chief guest in the presence of Haryana chief minister Mahohar Lal.

The theme had been chosen keeping in view the most critical and crucial importance of the thrust accorded to the area of Digitalisation and Skill Development by Government of India and realise the proclaimed national goal for ?Make in India Campaign? and the PM?s vision of ?Youth Led Development?.

To achieve the proclaimed national goal, it has been decided to project the various widely acclaimed initiatives of Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, NSDA, NSDC, DGET & MoMSME etc. through Skill Development Exhibition, Lectures and Workshops for the benefit of thousands of participants of the Festival and local youth.

The Mascot of the festival was decided in view of the long standing skewed sex ratio, especially in a state like Haryana. The selection of ?Lado? reflects the sensitivity of the state government towards the gender inequality in the state and to bring women at par with men which both the government is committed to combat.

The Festival will also witness a Defence exhibition where various aspects and initiatives of the defence forces, display of equipment, and avenues for recruitment into Armed Forces will be projected for the benefits of thousands of young participant.

A performance by a renowned artist on the life and ideology of Swami Vivekanand on the opening ceremony will be the highlight of the festival. During 13 to 16 January 2017, the Festival will have a variety of cultural programmes (both competitive and non-competitive), Youth Convention, Suvichar (a lecture series), Exhibitions and adventure programmes, Hasya Kavi Sammelan, Haryanavi Nights etc. followed by Cultural Evening by Hansraj Hans and Raftaar.

India being one of the youngest nations in the world with about 65% of its population under the age of 35, Goel expects that this ?demographic dividend? offers a great opportunity for the country to revolutionize itself and achieve the vision of a clean India, a skilled India and most importantly an incredible India . He urges the Youth of the Nation to strive and work endlessly in the process of nation building following the paths shown by Swami Vivekanada.

The delegates from the different states have already started arriving for the event. It is expected that about 5000 youth delegates from different States/UTs will attend.
