Youth power on capital roads

Some ran, while others attended a seminar. Ranchi youths took over the streets on Sunday to observe Swami Vivekananda’s 151st birth anniversary, also celebrated as National Youth Day.

Run for Jharkhand

Over 5,000 boys and girls gathered at Morabadi grounds and ran up to Harmu grounds, a distance of around 6km, to spread the message of youth power on the occasion of National Youth Day. Organised by Hip Hip Hurray Club, the run was flagged off by former deputy chief minister Sudesh Mahto in the presence of international hockey star Savitri Purti at 7.45am. Folk artiste Nandlal Nayak cheered participants with traditional songs

Youth power

Youth is the power of nation, reminded Ramakrishna Mission’s secretary Swami Shashankananda to a 1,000-plus audience in a seminar organised by NGO Vikas Bharti. He also urged them to follow Vivekananda’s teachings. Vikas Bharti secretary Ashok Bhagat announced a football match at Morabadi on February 9.

Mini marathon

BIT-Mesra, in association with Jharkhand State Aids Control Society, Life Savers and Hotel Green Horizon, organised a mini marathon.

The event was part of the campaign against thalassaemia — a drive taken up for BIT-Mesra’s annual inter-college techno-cultural-management fest, Bitotsav-2014.

State art, culture, sports and youth affairs minister Geetashree Oraon flagged off the marathon from Central Library near Ranchi College. The run ended at Morabadi Football Stadium, where the participants completed two laps of 2.5km each.

Wanbait Shylla won the trophy, while Jaikey Jaish and Banjop followed suit. Ranchi SSP Bhimsen Tuti, who was the guest of honour, gave away trophies and certificates to the winners. BIT-Mesra vice chancellor Manoj Kumar Mishra lauded the efforts of the students.
