Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the 25th National Youth Festival in Puducherry today on the occasion of Swami Vivekananda Jayanti, which is observed as National Youth Day across India. According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, the festival will be held virtually on January 12 and 13 due to the ongoing coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic (PMO).
At 11 a.m. today, Modi will speak at the inauguration ceremony.
Aside from that, the Prime Minister will unveil a technology centre that will be run by the Union Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME), as well as an auditorium with an open-air theatre called the ‘Perunthalaivar Kamarajar Manimandapam.’
PM Modi announced today’s event on Twitter on Tuesday, along with some photos of the auditorium. He had invited his “young friends” to join today’s programme earlier on Monday (January 10) and urged them to “share their inputs.”

On Monday, Modi tweeted, “It’s always a delight to hear from India’s talented youth.”
With a focus on the electronic system design and manufacturing (ESDM) sector, the technology centre was built at a cost of nearly 122 crore. According to the PMO statement, it will focus on youth skill development and train around 6,400 trainees per year.
The auditorium, on the other hand, cost around Rs. 23 crore to construct. The PMO statement added, “It would primarily be used for educational purposes and can accommodate more than 1,000 people.”
The National Youth Festival aims to mould India’s youth into a “unified force for nation building.” The PMO stated, “It aims to bring diverse cultures of India together and integrate them into a united thread of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat.”
Following Modi’s inauguration of the festival, the National Youth Summit will take place, featuring panel discussions on four topics: environment, climate, and SDG-led growth; technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation; indigenous and ancient wisdom; and national character, nation building, and homegrown.
During the festival, attendees will also be able to see recorded video capsules of Auroville, Puducherry, the Immersive City Experience, as well as indigenous sport and folk games. Following that will be open discussions with Olympians and Paralympians, as well as a live performance this evening. Meanwhile, in the morning, a virtual yoga session will be held.
Modi will unveil selected essays on “Mere Sapno ka Bharat” and “Unsung Heroes of the Indian Freedom Movement” during the inauguration ceremony. The winners were chosen from over 1 lakh submissions by Indian youth on the two themes mentioned above.
