National Youth Conference in Nepal

The Young Adults of the SSIO of Nepal organised a biannual National Youth Conference in Kathmandu on 14th–15th April 2017, on the theme, “Transformation through Selfless Service.” Even with annual school examinations approaching, more than 1,100 youth from all over the country streamed in to take part in the conference. The programme opened with a grand procession of Sathya Sai Young Adults proudly carrying the thematic banner along with the national flag of Nepal. A group of young children dressed in different cultural costumes followed, while others carried a giant picture of Sathya Sai Baba in the procession. The two-day programme included talks by eminent speakers, interspersed with cultural programmes, drama and video presentations, an outstanding exhibition, and six workshops. Guest speakers included Nepal native Ms. Arunima Pant, a former lecturer at Anantapur campus, and Mr. Aravind Balasubramanya, a Sathya Sai university alumnus from Prasanthi Nilayam, both of whom shared of their numerous experiences with Baba, highlighting important lessons learned. They enthralled the audience with their talks, which evoked laughter, joy, and tears of devotion. The audience also viewed videos of service activities undertaken by the SSIO of Nepal under very difficult conditions. Finally, the youth adopted a resolution to start construction of a new Sri Sathya Sai Drinking Water Project at Shyangwe, in Dhading district, for the benefit of approximately 244 families of the Chepang tribal community.
