We reached RK Math, around 7:30 PM on 7th August, 2014. After registration we moved to Venketeshwar hall at Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence. Around 8:00 PM swami Bodhamayananda welcomed all and define the internal and external structure of the National Youth Convention. The internal structure included the daily routines for delegates. For e.g. 4:30 AM wake up call, 5:00 AM Mangal Aarti, 6:00 AM Yoga Class, etc. The external structure included all the sessions of the Youth Convention i.e. it was consisted of 4 sessions – morning session, forenoon session, afternoon session and evening session. He described the major problems in our country and motivated us to ask why rather than how the problems are increasing. For e.g. a boy murdered his mother only for ₹ 60,000. A boy was murdered at public place in Delhi and none act against the murderers.
