National Youth Day or Yuwa Diwas is celebrated with the great joy and enthusiasm in India every year on 12thof January. It is celebrated to commemorate the birthday of Swami Vivekananda, maker of the modern India. The philosophy, ideas, and teachings of Swami Vivekananda can justifiably be called national assets from traditional and cultural points of view.
