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.

PHO­TOS: BACHCHAN KU­MAR
