India is at a crossroads, with over half of our population under 25. These 650 million youth – their aspirations and capabilities – will determine our nation’s future, and in many ways, the world’s future. However, the impositions and pressures of society are taking a toll on them with over 40% of students in India experiencing depression or tension due to academic pressure.
Unfortunately, a majority of our youth have no source of profound wisdom and insight. At a key juncture in life, as they explore and are vulnerable, there is a dearth of sane voices offering clarity.
“Youth AND Truth” is a movement led by Sadhguru to empower the youth of our country with the required clarity and perspective – so as to enable them to realize their full potential. The movement was brought to life on the back of a month-long series of college events across the country covering a wide range of educational institutions such as IIM-A, IIT Bombay, JNU, NALSAR University of Law and others. Mass media and digital amplification accompanied these on-ground student events. A digital platform was created which became a repository of both questions from the youth and Sadhguru’s answers. In addition, there was a series of informal events in youth-oriented locations. All these events were interactive, candid sessions between Sadhguru and students, where students could seek clarity on any topics they chose, be it career, parents, addiction, stress, relationships or sexuality – nothing was off limits!
Youth AND Truth is a movement to inspire and empower Indias youth. It is an investment in the future of the nation.
