Youth for Seva, true to their mission is proactive in channelising our youth community and providing one of the best platforms for them to volunteer. Many people who are willing to take some social responsibility need not wander around, instead straight away volunteer through YFS and satisfy themselves. Let Swami Vivekananda’s saying
“They alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive.”
be the inspiration which can take forward and unite the country in the future.
Swamiji was a great observer of the human mind and the human society at large. He understood that undertaking any social change needed enormous energy and will. Hence he called upon the youth to not only build up their mental energies, but their physical ones as well. He wanted ‘muscles of iron’ as well as ‘nerves of steel.’ He wanted the youth to possess indomitable will and the strength to drink up the ocean. What he wanted was to prepare the youth both physically and mentally to face the challenges that would lie ahead of social workers. He was also practical enough in warning the young of the pitfalls ahead and the way Society reacts to such endeavours. To quote him:
All good work has to go through three stages. First comes ridicule, then the stage of opposition and finally comes acceptance.
As one of their activities volunteers were very happy in organising and distributing bags, notebooks, pens, erasers etc. to the kids in Sri Ramakirshna Vidya Kendra, Ramakrishna Mission, Shivanahalli.
