The brief introduction of some of our flagship events are as follows:

"Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore." - Cesar Chavez
However, this vision seems murky in today's world, scarred with social injustice and disparity.In times when we are running expeditions in search of water on lunar surfaces, a multitude of our countrymen are deprived of clean drinking water.
Despite the presence of 3.5 million Social Organizations in our country, a large number of social issues continue to exist. The current circumstances call for visionary, motivated youth to step out of their comfort zones and reignite the mantle that once enlightened the entire nation. Are you one of them?
Prize money for the event is INR 40,000. For more details visit: http://disha.ktj.in/.
A developed India by 2020, or even earlier, is not a dream. It need not be a mere vision in the minds of many Indians. It is a mission we can all take up and succeed. - A P J Abdul Kalam.
However, these buoyant visions seem distant dreams when seen in the light of current circumstances, where the peace and consequently prosperity of India are being threatened by various insurgent and terrorist movements. Cross Border terrorism and naxalism have emerged as the major threats, potentially nullifying the socio-economic progress. The grave situation calls the dynamic youth to the forefront, to envisage an era of peace, conducive to the growth and development of the nation.
