JAMMU, Sept 16: The National Youth Kendra Sangathan (NYKS) in Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh, under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India, has orchestrated a highly successful second phase of the "Meri Mati Mera Desh" campaign in the twin Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
The nationwide event was officially launched in all districts of these Union Territories by NYKS. As a pivotal part of the second phase of "Meri Mati Mera Desh," Amrit Kalash Yatras were organized in all villages across the nation from September 1st to September 30th, 2023. During these yatras, soil or rice was collected in Amrit Kalash (sacred urns).
Numerous programs were organized in the Jammu Division as part of this initiative. In Rajouri, National Youth Volunteers, along with Youth Club Members, conducted door-to-door soil collection drives in Panchayat Gambhir Mughalan of Blocks Manjakote and Panj Grian. Similar drives took place in Poonch, particularly in Panchayat Mahra B of Block Buffliaz. In Jammu, a Kalash Yatra was conducted in Block Bhalwal, attended by Sarpanch, Panches, Retired Army Personnel, Asha Workers, and NYV Sahil Sepolia. Kathua district witnessed a soil collection drive in Mandli, led by NYV Anadika Mahajan. Additionally, programs were held in Blocks Billawar and Mehreen, where Youth Volunteers collected soil from households. In Doda, Kalash Yatras were organized in Blocks Kastigarh, Jakyas, and Ghat with the active participation of youth and PRI Members.
The Kashmir Division also witnessed a multitude of programs during the second phase of Meri Mati Mera Desh. Various blocks in Anantnag district saw National Youth Volunteers and Youth Club Members engage in door-to-door soil collection as part of the Kalash Yatra. Soil collection drives were also conducted in Ladakh Division.
In Leh district, NYK Leh collaborated with Kendriya Vidyalaya to organize various activities under Meri Mati Mera Desh Phase 2, featuring participation from NYVs, Youth Club members, and PRI members. In Kargil, a Soil Collection drive was held in Block Pashkum, orchestrated by Youth Volunteers and Youth Club members of NYK Kargil.
Notably, Block-level Amrit Kalash Yatras are scheduled to be held from October 1st to October 13th, 2023. During this period, the soil or rice collected at the village level will be transported to an identified location and poured into larger Kalash urns at the Block Level. These events will also feature cultural programs and the honoring of Veernaris (women of valor) and Bravehearts. Subsequently, from October 22nd to October 27th, 2023, State-level Kalash Yatras will take place, during which the Kalash urns collected at the Block levels will be brought to the State Capital and then onwards to the National Capital by dedicated Volunteers via Special Trains from October 28th to October 30th, 2023.
During the culminating event from October 28th to October 30th, 2023, traditionally dressed Volunteers from all states will march on Kartavyapath in New Delhi alongside the Amrit Kalash urns. The soil collected from all villages and blocks across the nation will be utilized to create an Amrit Vatika (Garden of Nectar) in memory of the bravehearts who sacrificed their lives for the country. A memorial dedicated to these valiant individuals will be established near Kartavyapath, serving as a lasting tribute to their sacrifice and dedication.
