10,000 students make wellness event a hit
VASHI: Students from Nashik, Pune and Bhopal participated in Cidco’s a mega Wellness and Spiritual Youth Fest at Cidco Exhibition Centre in Vashi.
The Youth Fest was an initiative to inspire and encourage the youths today towards powerful and positive living in their day to day life.
“This is for the first time that more than 70 colleges have participated in a meditation session in the country. We had more than 10,000 students here,” said Sanjay Bhatia, Cidco vice-chairman and managing director.
The programme started with a welcome song presented by the students of MGM college, Kamothe.
Bhatia said, “The idea behind the programme was that today’s youth is high on intelligent quotient (IQ) but low on emotional quotient (EQ). They need to understand that the sooner they get spiritual the better it will be for them.”
Students had a de-stressing time through music and dance.
“It was an enriching and exciting session. Meditation is certainly required for students who are mostly stressed out. There is a need for more such programmes on a regular basis,” said Rakesh Shinde, a student from Panvel.
Students perform at the fest at Cidco Exhibition Centre on Friday.
