Sri Krishna Jayanthi Celebrations Committee, under the auspices of VHP, has been holding competitions for school students from June to September at 32 centres in 28 subjects involving 20,000 students. As a follow up, we are conducting competitions for teachers in 12 subjects during the month of November/December followed by a one-day orientation camp on February 2 involving 420 teachers.

In connection with the Swami Vivekananda’s 150{+t}{+h}birth anniversary, the association conducted two competitions for college students (Oratorical and Essay Competitions). The colleges were requested to send two students for oratorical and 4 students for essay competitions. Students from 13 colleges responded by sending as many as 78 participants and the competitions were held on February 5. A function to honour those prize winners was organised at Meenakshi College for Women, Kodambakkam, on February 13.

Former Chief Secretary to the governments of West Bengal and Tripura, B.S. Raghavan, who distributed prizes to the winners, in his speech, emphasised the values of Swami Vivekananda and Niveditha to emulate their values to be adopted in their daily life to become the first-rated citizens like Dr. A.P.J. Abdul kalam, the former President of India to achieve the goals in their life.
