20091003 Addl. Slides For Healthy Youth for Healthy India


Published on

A talk was arranged for the NSS Volunteers of the St. Pious Degree College, Nacharam, Hyderabad, on Healthy Youth – Healthy India. Two power point presentations were used for the lecture. For the first half an hour, the lecture went on in English, however, after verifying that all the students know Telugu, Telugu was also used for explaining certain aspects, which can be better appreciated when explained in the mother tongue.

The need for health, the need for physical, mental, spiritual health, how to obtain all-round health, were touched upon. The need for healthy development of the youth for the health and well-being of the nation was emphasized. Human values must be considered as important in the development of spiritual health. The explanation was given in the context of patriotism – how to be. 40 assets, that the youth must strive to acquire, were briefly explained. In the context of spiritual health, the concept of GOD was explained, briefly, in a secular manner.

You would be better able to appreciate the beauty and the purpose of the presentation when both the audio version, uploaded to www.archive.org [please search for Prof. V. Viswanadham], and the relevant power point presentation that can be viewed at www.scribd.com [please search for Viswam.vangapally4581] and / or www.slideshare.net/viswanadham and taken together as a package.
