"Tomorrow I look forward to addressing a gathering of students on the theme of 'Young India, New India'," PM Modi had tweeted yesterday.

The convention of students is being held on a day Vivekananda delivered his historic address at Chicago in 1893, he noted.

He said Vivekananda strongly believed in the power of "Yuva Shakti' (youth power) and saw a vital place for youngsters in the realm of nation-building.

"Inspired by the ideals of Swami Vivekananda, we are working tirelessly towards realising the dreams and aspirations of our youth," the prime minister said.
