Army takes 20 students on national tour

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Nov 18 - The Indian Army�s Red Horns Division today flagged off a National Integration Tour for 20 students of Baksa and Nalbari districts. The tour is aimed at exposing the youth of Assam to various facets of life and give them a glimpse of various opportunities.

�The idea behind the tour is to educate, motivate and empower the youth to make informed decisions in life and consequently take a small but concrete step towards social empowerment. The opportunity will also provide exposure to these youths to different parts of India and subsequently, motivate them to join the Indian Army and various government organisations. Twenty students � 10 girls and 10 boys � have been selected after consultation with school authorities and teachers from schools adopted by the Indian Army,� a defence spokesman said.

The students are in the age group 14-16. They will visit different corporate and government offices and places of importance during the tour. The group will also interact with dignitaries from both military and civilian administrations. The tour shall take the students to Mumbai and Pune for 14 days.

�The tour will significantly enlighten them regarding the social, cultural and economic diversity of the nation and will enrich their knowledge through experience. Through this project, we hope to bring about a positive change in the lives of these students and their families by giving them a significant opportunity to make an informed decision based on this experience and explore the myriad avenues hitherto unknown. The tour was officially flagged off in a formal ceremony at Rangiya Military Station by the GOC Red Horns Division today,� the spokesman added.
