The orientations were held at Vivekananda Kendra Chanakyapuri, New Delhi center. These orientations (workshops) aim to introduce young people to Swami Vivekananda's ideas. Each orientation (workshop) lasts four hours and includes games, skit preparation, presentation, group discussion (GD), and presentation. It begins with an invocation and a brief introduction to the attendees. In addition, an introductory remark is made to put the participants in comfort and to provide a road map of the orientation. Then we move on to Geet (a patriotic song). Following the introduction and Geet, all participants are divided into groups and taken outside for the game and other activities.
We then moved on to our next activity, a skit presentation, in which the groups had to perform a skit based on the theme Digital India and Atmanirbhar Bharat. Regarding the group discussion, the topic was 'Need to Know Thyself.'
A presentation by the participants and closing words from a senior Karyakarta of the Vivekananda Kendra bring the GD to a close. Following these introductions, weekly sessions on personality development will be given every Sunday.
The chosen students from the orientation will participate in a five-day residential "Young India: Know Thyself" camp in January 2023.
