Bringing about behavioural and thought level changes in people is quite a challenging job. In Jagriti Yatra the impact is massive and deep. We at GOONJ have seen this first hand with the Yatris. There is a vast change in their vision, thoughts and behaviour after the Yatra. The Jagriti Yatra, to me is a source of energy and inspiration, from the brightest 500 youth from all over the country.
Yatra has been a moment of inspiration for many, but Vidyut Varkhedkar, had a life-changing experience when she boarded the Jagriti Yatra train, in 2014. For her, it was the moment that defined her calling, and she couldn't just keep it to herself and decided to write a book on her experience.
I don’t feel alone anymore — I am no longer the odd one out. I am connected to a sea of young India that is positive, enterprising and ethical.
Dr R A Mashelkar
The opportunity to meet the young yatris of Jagriti Yatra was unquestionably a high point in my life. I was expected to inspire them, but it was the other way round, they inspired me! Our interaction was so energizing and so fulfilling!!
Everybody has a 'wow' moment and if one is lucky, several of them during a lifetime. I am possibly one of the few really privileged ones who meets amazing people literally most days of the year, which means I have a treasure chest of wow moments.

When I participated in Jagriti Yatra, it reminded me my youth days when we were in Gandhian Movement. Yatra was full of passion, energy and cheer. Jagriti Yatra is revolutionizing the youths of India by giving them exposure of positive India where aspirations and dreams of poor become true.
