What is Jagriti Yatra?
Jagriti Yatra is a 15-day long, national train journey from 24th December to 8th January that will take me 8000kilometers across the length and breadth of India, to understand and build the India of smaller towns and villages through enterprise. Jagriti Yatra attracts 17,000 registrations every year through India and some parts of the world of which only 450 best are selected for the journey.
The train stops at 12 locations to personally meet exceptional change-makers who are transforming India. Aravind Eye Care (Madurai), Anshu Gupta (Goonj, Delhi), Bunker Roy (Barefoot College, Tiloniya), Joe Madiath (Gram Vikas, Odisha), Narayan Murthy (Infosys, Bangalore), Harish Hande (SELCO, Hubli) and R.Elango (Kuthambakkam Model Village, Chennai) are a few among others. Nation-builders such as Sam Pitroda, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Meera Sanyal, and Dr. R. A. Mashelkar have participated in the program previously.
It is an ambitious train journey of discovery and transformation that takes hundreds of India's highly motivated youth, especially those who are from small towns and villages of India, on a 15 day, 8000 km national odyssey to meet the role models - social and business entrepreneurs - of the country. The vision of Jagriti is 'building India through enterprise' and its mission is to nurture 1 Lakh (1,00,000) entrepreneurs by 2022 and create 10 Lakh (10,00,000) jobs in this process!
Why do I want to go on the Yatra?The opportunity to meet change-makers and leaders who have made a significant contribution to thousands of lives through their enterprise is galvanizing. And I will be interacting with peers who envision a country of their dreams. Ideas are born when people connect, interact and collaborate, The Jagriti Yatra is a hotbed of intellect and aspirations. I believe that Jagriti Yatra will provide me the basic clarity and vision to work towards the progress and change we wish to see in our country. A 15-day journey will have an influence for a lifetime.
And for that I will need all your support and love. Thank You!
