The tour intends to enable these students to bask in the glory of rich cultural heritage of our Nation and to expose the young generation to the true benefits of peace and development, integrating them into the Nation’s main stream.
The tour will provide an opportunity to these young boys to appreciate the harmonious co-existence amongst the people from different religions in various parts of India.

The tour has a comprehensive aim of fostering brotherhood, feeling of unity and creating awareness of our nation’s multi faceted identity. This tour will certainly go a long way in strengthening the ideals of integrity, cohesiveness and awareness amongst the youth of this region, by giving them a glimpse of the prosperity and cultural heritage of our Nation.
