Life is a like a mirror.
If you frown at it,
it frowns back.
If you smile,

Become KNOWLEDGABLE.
It's easier to be ignorant and
say that I don't know about the problem.
But once you know,
once you've seen it with your eyes,
then you have a responsibility
to do something.
There is strength in numbers,
and if we all work together as a team,
we can be unstoppable.
Together, we can make a
substantial difference.

Definition
as per World Health Organization

physical, mental and social well being
and not merely
an absence of disease or infirmity.
October 1, 2009 11

~ Physical
~ Mental and
~ Social,

~ Spiritual
~ Emotional

Physical health,
and to some extent mental health too,
can be improved by active participation
in sports.
Character, values,
physical and mental strength
are all challenged and improved
in a short span of time.
Sports can tell us a lot
about ourselves as individuals
and as a society.
October 1, 2009 15
Mental health,
relatively speaking, is more important.
It can be improved by
developing positive attitude,
engaging in healthy thinking,
cultivating good habits,
reading inspiring books,
choosing good friends,
and participating in good activities.
Character, values,
personality, attitudes, behaviour, etc.
will all be improved.
October 1, 2009 16
Spiritual health,
can be improved by
practicing
Human Values,
such as,
Love,
Truth,
Peace,
Righteousness,
Non-violence, etc.
October 1, 2009 17
Spiritual health,
plays a significant role,
in improving all-round health.
It can be improved by
traditional methods,
such as participating in religious activities.
Spirituality, is more abstract
and to my mind, more important,
in developing your spiritual health.
October 1, 2009 18
Improving simultaneously
all aspects of health ~
Physical, Mental and Spiritual ~
will help an individual to become a
constructive, contributing citizen.
With such citizens,
the whole country
will become more vibrant,
productive, developing and
progressing in all respects.

Now that you know something
that will help you to
Improve yourself,

“India is the cradle of the human race,
the birthplace of human speech,
the mother of history,
the grandmother of legend,
and the great grandmother of tradition.
Our most valuable and
most instructive materials
in the history of man
are treasured up in India”.

Being a youth group member,
Your roles and responsibilities
are many.
Your primary goal
is to help create a community
in which all the youth are
healthy,
educated,
self-reliant and
socially responsible.
October 1, 2009 32
Your NSS Program
provides a platform
for thinking beyond your own welfare
to do something for others.
Through various group activities,
You can turn into more
responsible youth and,
ultimately,
socially responsible adults.

A Healthy Nation is one
which provides its youth

the talents, skills, and knowledge
necessary to ensure
their healthy transition to
