As part of the National Youth Day Celebrations, Ramakrishna Mission, Delhi, organized a full day Youth Convention. This was attended by nearly 800 youth. Sri Swapan Dasgupta delivered the keynote address. Sri Anand Kumar (Super30), Sri Vinayak Lohani(Parivaar) and Sri Nimesh Nimo Patel(Empty Hands Music) were the invited speakers, who encouraged the gathered youth with their rousing interactive sessions.
Shri Vinayak Lohani after doing his B.Tech from IIT, Kharagpur, and MBA from Kolkata, opted out of the placement process and started ‘Parivaar’ with just three children in a small rented building and virtually no financial resource. Today it stands as a shining example of social entrepreneurship.
