National Youth Day

During the International Year of the Youth, the Government of India declared 12 January 1985 as the National Youth Day all over the country – 12 January being the birthday of Swami Vivekananda in 1863 –and that 12th January shall be observed every year thereafter as the National Youth Day.


In a communication, the Government of India mentioned the significance of the day:” it was felt that the philosophy of Swamiji and the ideals for which he lived and worked could be a great source of inspiration to the Indian youth.”
