Fazilka, November 3

The Graduates Welfare Association Fazilka (GWAF), which has carved a niche for itself by introducing the concept of car-free zone, eco-cab and dial-a-rickshaw facility in this border city, has taken up another task of bringing youths on one platform to provide them with an opportunity to channelise their energy for social transformation with the help of professionals of this town.

To bring the residents of this town and its surrounding areas on a common platform to make them develop ties among themselves, the GWAF is organising the 'Fazilka Youth Conclave' on November 6.

"The mission of the conclave would be social transformation through technological innovation and courage," Navdeep Asija, secretary (administration), GWAF, said, adding that investment to the tune of Rs 500 crores is expected in this belt, which would create employment opportunity for about 2,000 youths of this region. The conclave, which would be a non-political function, would reflect that youths of Fazilka, if they join hands, could do what the ruling political parties have not been able to do for the welfare of society.

"When all these people will put their heads together and will think about developing youth power for the betterment of society and for creating employment opportunity, the complexion of this region will change," claimed Asija.

"Dare to dream and have to courage to follow your dream, do not let small failures of life dent your belief in your dream, have the courage to see things through when the going gets tough. The only one way I know is determination and hard work. Believe in yourself and be consistent and persistent, success has to follow. This will also be one of the messages to the youths at the conclave," said Anoop Thatai, director, Orient Craft, one of the leading export houses of India, that is playing a key role in the organising of conclave.
