SMVDU student selected for Jagriti Yatra

Excelsior Correspondent
KATRA, June 8: Ankit Kumar, a final year student of B Tech ECE in SMVDU, has been selected for Jagriti Yatra and rewarded with a sponsorship for the same.
Notably, Jagriti Yatra is an annual train journey that takes highly motivated young Indians and a few young people from outside India between the ages of 20 and 27, on a 15- or 18-day national odyssey. A specially hired 18 wagon train takes 450 young men and women (a few of them are student entrepreneurs, a few more are rural entrepreneurs) competitively selected out of a pool of about 40,000 applications, to meet with and learn from exceptional entrepreneurs who are developing innovative solutions to India’s challenges.
Many of them are unsung heroes, and the Yatra encourages the young to unleash the hero within them. It has been executed successfully for the past three years in a row, and has established itself as a national calendar event that is a ‘must go’ for the young people.
