    Remembering Sardar Patel Iron Man of India view all

    Dear Sir/Madam,

            Greetings from Vishwa Yuvak Kendra!

    As you are aware, Vishwa Yuvak Kendra (VYK) is one of the pioneering NGOs in India actively involved in empowering youth of our country. VYK, through its various activities and training, provides wide-ranging opportunities to youth for constructive participation in the larger arena of community, socio-economic life. It was established with the active support of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and was inaugurated in 1968 by the then President of India, Dr. Zakir Husain.  It organizes workshops, seminars and training programmes for the youth workers of grass-root level NGOs on different developmental issues.

    The Kendra regularly organizes cultural, educational and motivational programmes for large groups from various section of the society. These programmes help the youth to develop a sense of socio-cultural awareness, democratic values, team spirit and decision making skills, which are essential for their overall development.

    During a recent interaction with eminent personalities, thinkers and youth workers, it was felt that the majority of Indian Youth was not well aware of the role and contribution played by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in India’s growth and development.  Pioneering among the contributions of Sardar Patel was the stellar role he played in unifying India, at a time when the nation was divided into small regions and minority states.  VYK felt an urgent need to make them aware of Sardar’s contribution, and so it was decided to organize a one day programme on “Remembering Sardar Patel: Iron Man of India” on 21 March, 2017 at Vishwa Yuvak Kendra.


    The programme would comprise of a gamut of events, including addresses by eminent resource persons and experts on role played by Sardar Patel in India’s independence and during the freedom struggle, role of Patel in National Integration etc., a brief documentary on Patel’s life and events, a (moderated) panel discussion on the Sardar Patel’s view on Agriculture, cultural performance by youth group, and a panel discussion of prominent personalities on “Whether Sardar was Pro Rich, Pro Hindu?”
