Guruji sponsors some seminars for youth and teaches them to develop their own personality; young achievers are felicitated and they are also encouraged to follow morals and live as good citizens in society.
Women Dasara: The festival is worship of woman power and our society is male dominated and women are punished for blind beliefs, sinful rituals, dowry harassment, and women are burnt and insulted. To stop such evil practices, awareness programs are conducted and the entire idea is to make women aware of their rights and to awaken them. Women from all walks of life are felicitated during the occasion.
