New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has on Tuesday asked the youth of the nation to follow Swami Vivekananda’s leadership advice and praised the revered monk for his contribution to developing individuals and institutions.
Speaking at the valedictory function of the second National Youth Parliament Festival today, the Prime Minister talked about Swami Vivekanand’s contribution to starting a virtuous cycle of individual development to institution-building and vice versa.
PM Modi remarked that individuals come in contact with Swami Vivekananda’s influence sphere and create institutions and these institutions in turn create new institution-builders. This starts a virtuous cycle of individual development to institution-building and vice versa. An individual builds a great company and the ecosystem of the company gives rise to many brilliant individuals who, in their time, create new companies, he added.
He also asked the youth to take advantage of the flexibility and innovative learning format provided by the recent National Education Policy. The policy aims to create better individuals by prioritizing aspirations, skills, understanding, and choice of the youth.
He underlined better education and entrepreneurial opportunities being made available to the youth of the country. “We are trying to create an ecosystem in the country, the absence of which often compels the youth to look towards foreign shores”, the Prime Minister said.
