Marking the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, a new facility ‘Sadhana’ was inaugurated at the premises of Vivekananda Institute for Leadership Development (V-LEAD) in Hebbal here on Saturday by Suttur Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji and Belur Mutt’s Ramakrishna Mission Trustee Sri Gautamanandaji.

Delivering the keynote address, Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement Founder Dr. R. Balasubramanyam said that the facility constructed on an area of 11,000 sq.ft. would offer a 2-year Masters Degree in Development Management and assistance would be provided for the youth at the Centre to become good thinkers and self-supporting. He added that the youth need guidance to work in social, cultural and religious sectors.

Addressing the gathering, Suttur seer said that youth were getting attracted to politics today which was not a healthy trend. He pointed out that one should not chase politics but instead emulate NGO leaders.

Chairman and MD of Canara Bank R.K. Dubey inaugurated the Canara Bank Library Hall and ATM facility at the campus.
