The celebration was marked with various events, viz. cultural on Swamy Vivekananda, songs and dance by children, etc., The highlight of the programme was distribution of prizes to the toppers of Open Book Examinations held earlier.
Sevalaya has been of the firm view that all youth, particularly students, imbibe and imbue the great thoughts of Swamy Vivekananda, which are relevant even to-day and in fact forever. In view of this Sevalaya had conducted Open Book Exam for the students not only of Sevalaya but also several other Schools also.
Another important and notable aspect of the event was that Sevalaya invited and involved the prisoners also to participate in this Open Book competition. Accordingly a good number participated and won prizes. This initiative was taken since Sevalaya has been desirous of spreading the messages of saint-philosopher Vivekanandha to all in the society and world at large, in view of its relevant to the world even today and in fact forever.
