During the lockdown in India, yuvaks and yuvatis from BAPS centers in Gujarat, Maharashtra and other states participated in the first-ever online Zonal Yuva Adhiveshans.
Youths competed with others from centers in their zone. They participated in four competitions: Vachanamrut Mukhpath (Memorization), Sahajanand Namavali Mukhpath, Poster Design and Script Writing.
On 17 and 19 May, a total of 2,155 yuvaks and 3,358 yuvatis took part online in the two mukhpath competitions. Each participant was tested by an assessor over a Whatsapp video call. While reciting their memorized material, the youths were required to keep their eyes closed to ensure fairness.
Youths also submitted their poster design and script entries online to the Satsang Activities Central Office in Ahmedabad for assessment.
Zonewise results were declared separately for yuvaks and yuvatis for each competition.
