Reply: [Arkitect India] Youth Information from ICYO
- Indian Committee of Youth Organizations (ICYO),
Thanks for your mail. I must say I do not fall in youth category but I am all for youth. I have founded a YOUTH DEVELOPMENT CENTER which is yet not registered.
I must say I am impressed with your activities of development of youths.
I would be too happy to associate or contribute in the planned activities because I strongly believe involving youths in developmental work is central to national awakenning, sensitization to political issues including role of youths in politics and, of course, in economic growth.
