Then it was Dr. Punit Dwivedi who spoke on the same theme and made the youths know the reality of life.

Today if India needs to develop, this can only be possible with the development of the youths. There are several opportunities which need to be explored but the youth is indulging in wrong activities which is the cause the nation is still way back. It is good that the blood of the youth is boiling but it is only useful when the youths do something productive. Ms. Aditi Chourasia also tried motivating and guiding the youths through her speech.
