On International Youth Day, UPF Remembers Late Indian President

India-2015-08-12-slides-On International Youth Day, UPF Remembers Late Indian President

New Delhi, India—UPF-India observed the UN International Youth Day 2015 by commemorating the life and legacy of former Indian president Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who passed away on July 27 at age 83.  Approximately 300 people attended the memorial program; among them were several distinguished guests, including the late president’s advisor Mr. Srijan Pal Singh, who had traveled with Dr. Kalam on his last journey (please click here to read about Mr. Singh’s experience with Dr. Kalam). Although the event was small in size, the program was beautiful.

Dr. Kalam used to say, “Don't declare any holiday on my death. Instead, work harder; that will be my best farewell."  Keeping Dr. Kalam’s words in mind and dedicated to doing more for the nation of India, the Youth Federation for World Peace-India launched Youth for Service, an initiative whose aim is to inspire youth in India to volunteer—primarily teaching poor and needy children—and provide them with opportunities to enhance their external and internal abilities to become future leaders, at the event.
