Tata Jagriti Yatra

We all are set to go for Tata Jagriti Yatra 2010. TJY is a unique discovery of enterprise, of oneself and of India. It is a tough journey of 9000 kms, 18 days and one train in which Yatris get opportunity to speak to some leading social workers and entrepreneurs of India. Tata Jagriti Yatra is designed to inspire young Indians to collectively discover their passions. This is the forth year of TJY.  Around 400 Yatris are being shortlisted every year including some foreigners.

This time TJY has got huge response of more than 20,000 applications and we are proud to be shortlisted in top 75! It was fun to participate in TJY selection process and make our thoughts more clear by writing essays for selection. After such a long selection procedure now I am excited to go for this national odyssey. I know its gonna be really hectic journey but I want to make full use of it by meeting like minded people and visiting all India. There will be so many things to experience and learn…

The 18-day trip is a partnership between NGO Jagriti Sewa Sansthan and several companies of the Tata group. It chugs off on December 24 and covers 13 cities and villages before returning to Mumbai. Stops include Trivandrum, Kanyakumari, Madurai, Chennai, bagalore, Hyderabad, Bhubaneswar, Jamshedpur, Delhi, Tilonia and Mithaur. The central focus of the journey is to meet those real heroes who are creating entrepreneurial success stories in India. The aim is to awaken the spirit of entrepreneurship – both social and economic – within India’s youth by exposing them to individuals and institutions that are developing unique solutions to India’s challenges…

On 24th December 2010, all 400 young adults will aboard a train from Mumbai to discover the country and figure out how they can revolutionize society. We’ll be back on 11th Jan 2011 with lot of memories and experience for lifetime…
